: Hi,

: I am not quite understand the bracketed phrases. Could anyone do me a favor?

: Television newsreels will, of course, continue to develop and be of the greatest interest and attraction, but (there is surely not the least possibility that they will ever replace the news on sound.)

: Thanks a lot.

"not the least possibility" = there's no chance. It's not going to happen.

But I don't understand what "replace the news on sound" means.
