No, that's the First Amendment.

The Second Amendment is the rather problematical one about the right to bear arms.

I suspect the bears aren't especially pleased with that Amendment either

Most of it is and I avoid it at all costs with the exception of the audio forum, which I regularly frequent to discuss Big Finish productions. Most posters in that forum are down-to-earth, regularly people.
Does that mean the posters elsewhere are only intermittently people?
"Almost People"? Oh my god, it's full of Gangers!

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

To save anyone else the effort of posting this, a TV EPG for the UK is listing the Dad's Army episode The Loneliness of the Long Distance Walker for the next weekend but one, which would be nice, as it's missing.
But don't get too excited - the talk from inside the BBC is that someone just automatically scheduled the next episode (they've just started running season two, which is the incomplete one), not realising that it doesn't exist. In other words, if anyone tells you that this is proof the big 60s TV find is for real, tell them that it isn't, it's just a slip-up.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Yeah, the GB thread is already wild over it. A heck of a mistake for someone to have made in the circumstances. Mind you, given that half of the posters there are currently convinced based on the results of a few Google searches that they know more about Sierra Leone's film archive than professional episode hunters (don't ask), almost anything can pass as evidence of conspiracy these days.

Oh, you're just a BBC Schill, trying to maintain their lie that they didn't find all these episodes, until they finally decide to own up to having them and start releasing them, WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR!!!!

LOL, yea, with all the Conspiracy Theories floating around that is a bit of an inconvenient fluster-cuck up

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Did a quick check as I couldn't remember which of the Dad's Army mini-episodes were missing, and it turned up something interesting (take this with a pinch of salt as it comes from wikipedia)...
Season two of Dad's Army probably wasn't telerecorded by BBC Enterprises, so (like Dalek Masterplan 7) it was lost when the videotapes were reused. Sergeant Wilson's Little Secret was transmitted from film, so survives as such (like Wheel in Space 6 and various other Who episodes), while the film copies of the two episodes recovered in 2001 were apparently made for viewing by American executives who were considering making a film version (happened in 1971) or an American adaptation (piloted a bit later).
So the other three were probably never telerecorded, and any episode recovery rumour that mentions Dad's Army is almost certainly rubbish.

What a fucking moron.

Anyone with even a handful of braincells would understand that the screening of a recovered episode of Dad's Army would be publicised well in advance by the BBC.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Half of the GB thread is shouting "But ten days is more than enough time to publicize it!" Which might be true, IF they were only trying to drive up the audience for the one showing. But of course they'd be using it to promote the entire just-launched repeat run, if not other archive TV repeats as well.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The latest hilarity is that just after a private Facebook post by someone who has worked on the DVDs claiming that "Marco Polo" hadn't been returned, the guy at GB with multiple quote-unquote sources received what he called "concerning" and "bizarre" news about the return of that very story, which had previously been one he was 100% sure was back. Then he reported that the "problem" was that they were having to sort through the multiple copies of the story that had been found, which "may take a while." And of course, the immediate response is not "How ridiculous can these claims get?" but "It could be true! Look at all the countries that bought the story!"

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

Ok... that's ludicrous. The Marco Polo thing is based in a misreporting of a con panel where some of the cast are going to talk through a screening of a telesnap reconstruction (which is presumably the origin of the different versions bit). But this has somehow become 'a dvd commentary' in some garblings.

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

And the scary thing is that the main driving force behind all this nonsense is this guy...

https://twitter.com/WhoHarmonyPodca

...who among weird other things claims to have heard a tape recording made in Hell and to receive prophetic visions. (I can't speak for the first but his track record on the second ain't so hot. Unlike hell.)

Re: Wiped Episode Discoveries

The Who Harmony Podcast guy (who seems, according to people who have watched his YouTube videos, to have some mental or developmental issues) and Scot Ferre (who is the big GB rumor spreader and apparently-- I haven't seen links but I wouldn't doubt it-- has the interesting religious views, though on another forum he's denied believing in the hell tape recording) are two different people. Though at this point they seem equally credulous. One of the funniest parts of all this nonsense, in fact, is watching different rumor spreaders dismiss each other as ill-informed or a poor judge of claims, as if they all weren't drinking from the same fountain of unlikely.

Apparently Ferre's "sources" tell him there were going to be press conferences in March and July to announce the finds but they were put off for some reason. What that actually means, of course is "Doctor Who Online posted some gubbins about a non-new series announcement, which never materialized, in March" and "Bleeding Cool hinted at an imminent announcement in June."
