It’s been an exciting year for the return of missing material and one of the great ways to see some of this material is to go to the BFI’s Missing Believed Wiped event on the 16th of December! We take time in this episode to preview some of the awesomeness that is going to be shown this year!
We talk with two gentlemen who do not need introductions but we will do so anyway: Dick Fiddy TV Historian for the BFI who founded the Missing Believed Wiped event in 1993. We talk about the recent recoveries that will be shown at the event but also what else is going on at the BFI. At the time of publication of this podcast, the BFI is wrapping up its Sydney Newman season and we can a sneak peek at a couple of other events that have yet to be formally announced.
We then talk to Ed Stradling. Ed is a freelance Producer who has done extensive work telling the story of DOCTOR WHO through some of its most famous periods through documentaries but in this episode, we talk about his passion for missing British television material. He has been looking through countless hours of domestic recordings. What is he looking for? What is he going to have for us to watch at Missing Believed Wiped!
Finally, this podcast has been going for a year! Your host is celebrating this by traveling to the UK and will be at Missing Believed Wiped! If you are going to be there, let me know! I would love to say hi!
