Every year, the British Film Institute
airs television believed wiped by the BBC, (more info and some examples in this writeup
from the 2008 event.) This year's event had a special treat for many, with the discovery of two missing Doctor Who episodes, which until now only existed in audio form, or in unofficial reconstructions
combining the audio with still photographs.
View clips from the restored episodes:
Episode 3x03 - Galaxy Four, Part 3: Airlock
, starring William Hartnell
Episode 4x20 - The Underwater Menace, Part 2
, starring Patrick Troughton. (Compare that clip with one of the reconstructions of that sequence, starting at 5:50
Commercial releases of these episodes will occur in 2012
About 106 episodes
of Doctor Who (out of roughly 783
, depending how you count,) are still missing, with the most recent previous find being in 2004.
