30fps and PAL

I really only dabble in video, and then I've used the GH2 which can be set to a 50fps frame rate. But both Olympus and Fuji are based around 30fps. I've looked through the tutorial and found that useful, and I can understand the origins of flicker when 30fps is used in lighting that flickers at 25/50 per sec. However, what I'm not clear about is how 30fps footage plays on a tv designed for PAL (or 24fps for that matter). Do you get flicker, or does the movie go a little bit slower (faster). Or does the tv just adjust its frame rate to match? Video technology is a whole new ball-game to me and I don't know enough about it. Could one of you video techies explain what goes on please?
