Do any of these productions still exist in the BBC Archive? given their reckless junking of many classic TV shows before 1977?
Added by Al Hine on 08 October 2010
Al, the BBC lost them, however Archie Bevan had possibly the only copies, on videotape. They were shown at the St Magnus Festival some years ago.

We need an entrepreneur to get hold of those tapes from Archie and put them on DVD (as a shared enterprise!) They were landmark pieces and I mind fine watching them in London wae tears in me eyes back then!

Give me the full titles & date of original TX, & I'll get my chums on a TV Forum I visit to see what's what.
