WIPED NEWS is delighted to welcome on board missing episode hunter Ray Langstone as a columnist.
As regular readers may know, Ray has made a number of exciting recoveries this year – all by using the internet.
His committment to tracking down lost footage is to be commended and I hope you enjoy following his ongoing pursuit of material and thoughts about the subject of missing episodes in general.
You can find a link to his column – Raymond of the Lost Archive – over on the menu to the right (entitled “Also On Wiped”).
Wiped catches up with Keith Wickham, whose restored episodes of pre-Python radio show I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again have recently been lighting up the BBC Radio 7 schedule.
Keith has also worked on restoring such shows as The Goon Show, The Embassy Lark and The Big Business Lark.
You can read the full interview here.
An interview with the collector who recently returned a missing episode of The Troubleshooters is now up on Wiped.
Oliver Ashmole chats about how he found the episode – “A Bird in the Hand” – and also about his experiences of dealing with the BBC in getting the print back to the archives.
You can find the interview here.
