Hooray!...anyone who misses it would be as daft as Dickie Dotty!

Thank you very kindly for the heads up, didn't know about it, so a pleasant surprise , and the first episode, "How Now Brown Cow" is one I didn't know existed, so another for the list.

There's mention on the JC site about the 50 odd missing episodes ( out of 290) with some interesting info, such as BBC Manchester holding 46 complete shows, aside from the Sound Archive and TS holdings, although there are a number of duplicates among them.

Also of interest is the possibility of the World Service having some, a suggestion that some of the early 80's repeats were neither SA or TS, and that the WS often chose different episodes than TS.

If that's true, aside from the hope of more "TCK", it could also mean other show's gaps could be filled, such as "Ray's A laugh".

Five excellent quality trailers have popped up on YT, didn't even know about these, the quality plus their survival suggest they may be from the Sound Archive...possibly a later or even the last (1972) series?
