This unique project matches the soundtrack recording of a classic Doctor Who television story with a visual slideshow of 'telesnaps' showing images from the lost film recording. Of the 100+ episodes of Doctor Who which are absent from the television archives, only two elements survive: off-air sound recordings and 'telesnaps'. For each 25 minute episode of Doctor Who, approximately 70 off-screen photographs exist. Since 1998 BBC Audio has successfully published the soundtracks of these missing stories, with addition linking narration. This new MP3-CD series now marries the sound with the telesnaps, to present a slideshow of images from the episodes and going some way to 'reconstructing' the original film episodes. MP3-CDs can be played on any compatible player. To view the visual elements, a PC or Mac home computer is required. In The Power of the Daleks, the Doctor has regenerated for the first time, leaving his two companions suspicious of him being an impostor. But when the TARDIS materialises on the planet Vulcan, they must fight for their lives together - against the Daleks...

precisely how much of this show does indeed survive in clip form?
Only a collection of short clips, although they are a good range - post-regenerative Doctor, entering the Dalek capsuple, Dalek's chanting, Dalek's pretending to obey humans, Daleks exploding etc. A complete list, including exact durations, can be found at Steve Phillips' excellent clips list site: dwclips.steve-p.org/
This is released tomorrow, isn't it? Damn! I'm poor at the moment. Wish I'd pre-ordered! My silly family and friends have made me poor by too many of them being born in May and June, not to mention Father's Day.
