This show was able to be completely reconstructed from the Swedish compilations and the ABC Australia reels, the latter providing the one otherwise missing sketch and some of the links by Aimi. The Frensham audio tapes were invaluable as a template, allowing the extracts and fragments to be connected in the correct order and with precisely correct timing. Although some of the BFI’s partial reconstructions have been superseded by the subsequent recovery of the complete shows, this one has never been found, so the fact that a full restoration was possible, makes it unique on this set. Its premier screening was at a BFI Missing, Believed Wiped event in 2002 and it subsequently formed part of BBC4’s Missing, Believed Wiped evening in 2003.
