Help with capturing PAL VHS and upscale to to 720p

The original video masters to two shows have been lost, all I have are PAL VHS ex-rental tapes which I need to convert for use as extras on a Blu-ray release. The original (lost) masters were shot in the PAL format in 1982.

I'm considering upscaling to 720p / 23.976 fps for this.

Any suggestions as to the best way to go about this?

I guess it would be via an S-VHS deck with TBC. I'm unfamiliar with AviSynth, so would need help in setting this up and scripting - or I guess I could use the MeGui option.

I've experimented so far by recording to high-bitrate DVD-R and ripping with HandBrake and forcing the frame rate change from 25 to 23.976. As there's very little on-screen movement it looks pretty decent (it's a stand-up comedy show). I was wondering how I could get better results?

I'm a Mac user, but I also have a Windows 7 PC for authoring Blu-ray discs.
