Is it possible to improve the picture quality of an old vidoe?

I have a very old video and I am wondering if there is any way to improve the picture.

Thanks

In Premiere elements 2 you can change the color balance, brightnees and contrast and the gamma (mid tones)
You can increase the sharpness to a limited extent.
It is important to make sure your monitor has the correct brightness setting (dark grey tones just visible and not too black)

There is a noise-reduction plug-in available from http://www.neatvideo.com/, but I haven't used it myself.

The Levels effect is likely to give better results that Brightness and Contrast, perhaps applied differently to different colour channels depending on the deficiencies in your source material.
