5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent BBC sci-fi anthology series, 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent BBC sci-fi anthology series. The black and white episodes feel quite like the early Dr Who serials, albeit written for an adult audience. Later episodes are more in the style of Tales of the Unexpected. Superb restoration work on the old film recordings. Nice box presentation with informative booklet and DVD documentary.

Brilliant piece of kit. Fast and very effective. Easy to set-up, operate and clean and it came with a nice surprise; a free recipe book to give some juicing inspiration. Am using this every day and loving it.

Nice item. Modern hard drive recorders never seem to have enough storage space, whereas this little beauty gives you the flexibility to record to harddrive or to DVD+R. Playback is excellent. Easy to set-up and simple intuitive operation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destruction of Time, 1 Dec. 2010
"Wiped!" is an absolutely fascinating but saddening and often frustrating read, as it documents the wholesale destruction of the BBC's original Dr Who video recordings of all of the TV episodes that were made between 1963 and 1969.

The first half of the book dispationately details the dates that the BBC engineering department cleared their original tapes for wiping and reuse and it also lists foreign TV transmissions dates and (where known) the ultimate fate of the film print copies that were sold to overseas TV stations around the world; whether that fate would be to be returned to the BBC to become the only surviving copy of the episode in the TV archives, or to be destroyed, shredded and disposed of in a foreign landfill site.

The chapters covering 1978 onwards are more uplifting as the BBC began to formulate a proper archive of old TV shows and it describes the efforts of fans and BBC employees to try and track down the missing shows with some degree of success, as film copies began to filter back to the BBC from some overseas broadcasters and some private film collectors.

This really is the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject and Richard Molesworth has really done his research and he goes into great detail covering the sucesses, failures, hoaxes and the ongoing work to try and locate copies of the 108 episodes that remain absent from the BBC film and TV library.
