Is there anything on the Doctor Who side that was previously missing completely? A trailer, announcement, or a few seconds we didn't have audio for? Or is it all purely upgrades?
I think we did have everything. However, Mark will be able to confirm and obviously there will be some content which is better than what we already have, particularly with 'The Daleks' Masterplan'. There is also another collection that I have yet to deliver to Mark, t apes which were recorded by my old friend the late Paul Reeks. They are microphone recordings of very varying quality, but there are some gems amongst the tapes.
....Well that came out of the blue (at least for me)!
I'm particularly pleased about superior recordings for 'Masterplan though as a recent re-listening of the story reminded me of the distractingly uneven quality of the existent audio. Especially when compared to those of other missing stories.
A great start to 2019 then and hopefully just the beginning of 'Who themed riches to come this year?!
Hopefully the original source had more dr who as well as other missing series episodes
also if you put him onto mark ares, how did kaleidoscope get involved?
I can't answer your last question, I only put him in contact with Mark. I could speculate but that'd be pointless.
My first question, via DM, was about the original source. It appears these tapes came into his possession rather fortuitously. They were probably only moments from being destroyed for good before being rescued. It's probably not my place to divulge any more than that. Only to say a) there's no way (as I understand it) to contact the original owner and b) we're EXTREMELY lucky to have these recordings.
