News has come in that appears that the Channel 4 Archive did not receive all episodes of The Big Breakfast from Planet 24/Carlton. The BFI Archive hold some and a list is being compiled. ITV archives have been checked and they have no holdings at all. In typical archive fashion one would have to search every single tx date separately, the system can't generate a list of what does survive.
However at the moment the interest is if anyone here may have off-air recordings of 28th August 1998 and 3rd September 1998 for an ITV project?? Should any other episodes be confirmed as missing, information will be given here.
Please do email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any Big Breakfast recordings.

At the moment, a vast amount of shows are listed as 'existence unknown' on lostshows.com. This does not necessarily mean that they all are lost. This is just what the search engine says while entries are being updated (it takes ages to do this and I do not envy the compilers!!!!)
In the meanwhile, while its' fate is unknown, there is one dated full episode of the Big Breakfast on youtube (lots of clips, but only one full episode).
