Re: Missing episode recoveries history
I keep hearing this rumour, what is it?
I mean it's likely either a hoax or someone mishearing the source of the 2011 discoveries was (likely) Australia.
I keep "hearing" the rumor too. No idea if it's true.
But Oz was the main place, outside of the UK, that got Doctor Who episodes in that era (as a former colony?), and thus likelier to have them still around somewhere.
I think the hope is, they
didn't destroy them.
The US didn't get anything till the mid 70's, I think, so probably no chance any of those missing eps are here.
