Is that Doctor Who in your closet? (29th December 2001)
Last night (Fri) saw the broadcast of two recently rediscovered episodes of "Dad's Army", thought to be lost forever, which were recovered as part of the BBC's Treasure Hunt appeal for the return of material that had been wiped from the BBC Archives. The most recently discovered Doctor Who episode is of course "The Lion" (featured on the "Missing Presumed Wiped" programme also shown last night), but there are still 109 episodes missing.
If you happen across old film reels etc. lurking in your attic, shed, under the floorboards or wherever, and it turns out to be BBC material, please contact them to let them know! For more details see the Treasure Hunt website, which also lists contact details.
