Yes. On msot Beebs, it's just a matter of fitting the right jumper. On
the ACW (which has a Beeb B+ as the I/O processor), you have to fit 4
chips and a handful of components to add the PAL encoder circuitry.

However, the PAL subcarrier may well cause artefacts with 80 column text.
I'd prefer to use an RGB connection if possible.
