The latest version.  I've folded in all the data I have.  Waiting
to hear from Cintel; their data I'm sure will change this quite a bit.
There have to be more Mark III's out there.  I remember when Steve Roach 
found a hundred of them in a warehouse, unused, in Africa!.

NOTES:

Any telecine to be counted should be in operation, which 
generally means that it is in active use.

When I receive facility data it is included and the nonspecific total 
for that city or country drops by one, to keep the overall totals correct.
Example: France's "29" are those that are not included in the specifics 
immediately following.

Where a source is not given, that entity prefers to remain anonymous.

Not sure about the "noncommercial" and "broadcast" headings from
Australia, these should be folded into the total, there should be 
no distinction.

Frame Image in Helsinki: is this the same facility as "Generator"?

CalArts runs a TF-66, this could win the award for oldest telecine.
ABC NYC runs a TK28 with a Dubner.
