@MrMoody - I’m not sure in your case what the reason is, but I can tell you why the video looks better than the film, given the LCD dynamic contrast ratio.
In short, film has a lot of mid tones and a wide tonal variation from bright to dark colors. Video – which is used in news broadcasts – does not. Video is a flat blast of light, with fewer nuances in the color range.
That’s why your video looks better. Your film shows are more affected by your contrast ratios in my opinion.
