I know the recordings still exist.
24 August 2003 | by imdb-2624See all my reviews

In my time as a BBC Video Tape engineer I managed to find several Phillips VCR recordings of episodes from both series. I made copies and lent them to a play writer friend - now famous - who loves them. I have been told by contacts that all the episodes do still exist in the BBC archives, but I failed to find them when I did a search many years ago. It was the Video Tape editor who told me they existed, so I expect they do! No reason not to release or repeat them then is there? I believe that this series is a favorite of Mr. Cole too!
