My eventual goal is a complete archive of all participants, cuttings and questions in all of the shows, but to do this I need to iron out some hiccups in my collection:
|Prior to series 20:||I’m missing everything|
|From the 20s series:||I’m missing all of series twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two (except the end-of-year special) and twenty-five and s24e02 s24e03 s24e04 s24e05 s24e06 s24e07 s24e08 s24e09 s26e03 s26s01 s26s02 s27e01 s27e02 s27e03 s27e04 s27e05 s27s01 s29e02 s29e09 Truncated recordings – s26s03|
|From the 30s series:||I’m missing – s30e04 s30e05 s30e09 s30s01 s30s02 s31e02 s31e03 s31e06 s31e10 s32e03 s32e10 s32s01 s32s02 s34e05 s38e03 Truncated – s30e07 s31e05 s31e07|
|From the 40s series:||Truncated – s45e02 s47e02|
|From the 80s series:||I’m missing s83e05 s84e02|
If you have a copy of a missing edition you’re willing to share, or a full length one where mine’s not, I’d love to hear from you. You might be able to just email it to me at email@example.com but most email programs and providers limit attachments to 10mB, and a show is typically around 25mB. Therefore I have a facility where you can upload copies directly here. If you’re unable to supply a copy I’d really appreciate any information you have either verifying information is correct or advising it’s incorrect and filling in any blanks you’re able. You can on the relevant page or contact me privately.
HOWEVER, there are a lot of mis-attributed recordings around, so please check my version of a show’s line-up against your recording to see that it matches before you send it. If it doesn’t, it probably isn’t what it claims to be. If it doesn’t match but you’re still convinced it’s what it says it is, the easiest way to verify a show is to find a couple of the news items referred to and establish that they happened in the right week to have been broadcast on that date. Of course, this is easier for shows broadcast after the internet came on the scene and became popular! You can also use the facility here to see if there are shows listed with the line-up on your recording to see their attribution. For every show that I have, I’ve nearly completed an initial exercise of adding the opening cutting and the final score, which should enable you to confirm it’s the same show. (I think, so far, I’ve only come across one instance of the same cutting being used first in more than one show, except for compilations obviously.)
