I've noticed flickering on super slow-mo on telly before, so I'm assuming it's a by product although I don't know the technical reasons behind it. Would be interested to know though.

I think it has to do with the bulbs providing the light. They have a refresh rate too so what you're seeing is the pulses of light from the bulb when you slow the playback down.

If you see this flickering outside in natural light then the problem is something else.

Yeah it has to deal with the type of bulb that is providing the light. Do not know all the details but I have read a few posts with these same issue.
