TV takes its time reference from the mains frequency of 50Hz. Each frame is scanned once every 1/50 sec. with the scanning lines interlaced, which is what the i stands for.

The alternative is to scan the entire frame once every 1/25sec. and then move on, (progress) to the next frame. Hence p for progressive.
