Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

I didn't know Britain had a Freedom of Information Act.
It does. Strictly speaking the BFI isn't bound by it (though the BBC is, with certain exemptions), but as they're a type of organization it's meant to include, they comply with requests concerning public activities anyway.

The interesting thing about Moffat's comment (if it's real; I haven't seen a concrete source) is that the Restoration Team only received the episodes for restoration this summer. So there was a period of about a year where the episodes were known to exist but not in the possession of the BBC.
