90 episodes were made, but even with the above 8 now located, there are still 65 episodes Missing, so keep looking everyone.
Stone the crows.I spent the best part of a week looking for these a year or two ago,though some others turned up for myself and others.Would it be fair to say that there's still a van-load of stuff not catalogued at the BFI? For those who weren't around at the time,it transpired that the BFI had had shows,uncatalogued for 30 years or more,which they finally listed online without any fanfare.We made a pretty good trawl of everything and found perhaps a couple of hundred 'missing' programmes.I got the impression at the time that that was it.In fact,the reply we got from re 'Sound of Britain' was "The BFI say they only have these:...".A little more co-operation would be helpful.
Which is ignoring your contribution,Simon.I can imagine the hours you must be putting in searching,with Ray,when he can get online,and the others.It's partly your successes which spur me on! I'm envious about these.
