When we think of Lost TV Shows, it’s possible that the same 10 to 15 series may come to mind. Different series are important to different people. That is why this Kaleidoscope initiative led by Ray Langstone is so unique. He tallied from anyone who responded to his request to name their top lost TV shows. What did he do with this information and how did he acquire it? It’s fascinating and also interesting to see where some of our favourite series landed on the list! Just to make it even more interesting, we added some audio from missing programs to illustrate some of the choices made for the list.

Next, we have an incredible conversation with Jake Berger of the BBC Archive Development Team. I interviewed him while I was in the UK at the BBC Broadcast Centre. There, we spoke in-depth about the wonderful BBC Genome Project and also some other things that have been going on in that group. This is very much worth a listen; there is some truly remarkable information in this interview.

So much content, this is a long episode! Please enjoy!
