How can I rip a Region 2+4, 4:3 DVD into a format that'll play on my Apple TV?

I bought a copy of The Day Today, probably the funniest television series of all time, on DVD. I'd like to rip the episodes and play them on my Apple TV. The degree of difficulty is as follows:
-This show was never released in the United States, so the DVD region code is 2+4 according to the packaging.
-This show came out in 1994, so it's 4:3. (And it aired on BBC, so it's PAL, naturally.)
-The computer I'll be doing this on is a Mac mini, and I'll be using an external Samsung DVD drive. (I also scratched one of the discs like an absolute genius because it wasn't properly seated in the drive...but hopefully that won't be a big issue.)
I know Handbrake is a thing that works well for converting video files, though I've not done much of that myself, and I assume there's a preset for Apple TV format.
What's the best way to do this?
