9 Missing Episodes Traced to Thailand

The BBC’s destruction of video tapes is a well-known example of bad management – and has cost the corporation a good £10 million at the very least.

Among the vast number of tapes destroyed throughout the late 1960s and 1970s, a number of Doctor Who episodes were lost, mainly from the Patrick Troughton era.

However there were also a few key episodes lost from the William Hartnell era from 1963-1966.

Despite countless false alarms over the years, the tracing of missing episodes from the Marco Polo serial has made the news pages of The Telegraph.

Damian Finucane is offering a cash reward to anyone who knows the whereabouts of the missing tapes.

"Records show that nine episodes from Doctor Who were shipped to Bangkok, and now we’re looking for anybody who has any information about it," he told the Bangkok Post.

"There are at least a few thousand episodes of Doctor Who, but we are still missing 108 of them and nine may still survive in Thailand. We’re looking all over the place to recover what we can."

An exciting, but one that history shows us we should take wholly in our stride.
