My guess would be they are recons, as the post mentions tapes, but you never know. These two stories were sold to Singapore in the early 70s, recently enough to have been taped there.
As for the money issue, IMHO the BBC should agree to pay a small percentage of DVD royalties to the finders, give people an incentive to return stuff. I read in the paper last week that they sell Dr Who to 43 countries at a cost of £1 million each, so I reckon they should use some of this money to try and recover missing eps rather than it being a cash cow.

He mentions dad's army which many redundant TR's could exist but also talks about a another show called "studio E" anyone have a clue on`this?
Studio E was the puppet theatre studio at Lime Grove.
However, it was also the name of a 1950s children's programme,
MONDAY 18 FEBRUARY 1957 5.00 Children's Television: Studio 'E' Vera McKechnie introduces George Cansdale and his animal guests, Ion Trant on his Welsh farm, Ossie Noble with Harold Taylor and Carlos with his pigeons, Reg Darnley and his holiday harmonica, and 'Packi', a strip cartoon drawn by Tony Hart.
