We used to pitch correct various episodic series for Australia. That was 12
years ago. After some correspondence with the broadcasters down under, they
told us it really wasn't necessary. "No one knows what it really sounds like
at 24fps." We haven't pitch corrected since, and there haven't been any
inquiries from _anyone_ since then.
