'Lost' Doctor Who episodes found

Help

Two missing Doctor Who episodes, which were believed to have been erased, have been discovered in the collection of a former TV engineer.

The 1965 and 1967 episodes star William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton, the first two actors to play The Doctor in the long-running BBC series.

Terry Burnett bought them at a school fete in Hampshire in the 1980s but did not realise that the BBC did not have its own copies until he told Ralph Montagu, head of heritage at Radio Times.
