The next Kaleidoscope event will be BBC 2 at 50 on Saturday 6th September. It's been a tough process of elimination, especially with 50 years worth of television to work with, but I hope you'll enjoy the final line-up, which can be found here http://bit.ly/bbc2-at-50. Please feel free to share the details with anyone you think will be interested.

How well has Australia been checked for censored clips, I wonder. Just Doctor Who and The Goodies? Or other things as well?
Because there were beyong a doubt cuts made to "It's Marty", although it's probably too late now to retrieve them. Is there anyone who could be said to be in charge or who knows more or who made contact?

The BBC have copies of Australian censor clips from other shows, but they don't exist in the main catalogue, so they don't show up on general searches. I did some archive consultancy work on The Two Ronnies Spectacle that was screened on UK Gold last year and we used some censor clips from The Frost Report that were telecined and returned on tape by the ABC.

Ah, so clips from series 2 then.
I am thankful to you for clearing this up. I had always feared that they just checked for the obvious things and forgot about the rest.

Just a quick reminder that the Kaleidoscope BBC 2 at 50 event will start at midday this Saturday (6th Sep) at The Talbot Hotel, Stourbridge.

There's been a few last-minute changes to the line-up, so please check that all the people and programmes you want to see are still in the schedule (http://bit.ly/bbc2-at-50) and if you do join us on Saturday, remember admission is free, but we'd appreciate a donation to the RNLI team who will be with us on the day.

Guests will be Julie Stevens and Clive Doig with a specially recorded introduction to This Man Craig by John Cairney. We also have an exclusive preview of the new BFI Out of the Unknown DVD release which includes two colour restored clips.

Thanks and I hope to see you on Saturday.
