Here is a list of countries which use the SECAM television system. For Betamax and VHS, these can transferred to a PAL DVD by www.video99.co.uk. There are many variants of SECAM but I believe I can accept them all.
Note that S-VHS, Video8 and Hi8 recordings from SECAM equipment are actually recorded in PAL and will play on normal UK equipment. Digital formats such as miniDV, Digital8 and microMV do not use SECAM and again tapes from SECAM countries will play on normal UK equipment.
If your Betamax or VHS recording was made on equipment intended for one of these countries, then it will likely be a SECAM recording on the tape. Just taking your PAL camcorder from the UK such a country, for example, does not of course dictate what television system your recording is. It would still be PAL like you had recorded it at home. Any questions, just ask.
