Doctor Who at the BBC Lost Treasures
Louise Jameson presents another time travelling journey through six decades of radio and TV broadcasting, uncovering rarities from behind the scenes of Doctor Who
Do you remember when the Fourth Doctor called in on Pete Murray’s Open House? Or when Louise Jameson was menaced by a Dalek on BBC Radio Bristol? Do you remember when June Whitfield auditioned a Dalek? If these things passed you by in the 1970s and 1980s, now’s your chance to catch up!
Featuring rare recordings from the BBC archives and beyond, Doctor Who at the BBC: Lost Treasures is full of gems. There are recollections from six lead actors — Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith — plus their companion co-stars Louise Jameson, Lalla Ward, Nicholas Courtney, Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman, and production personnel including Delia Derbyshire, Peter Howell, Pennant Roberts, Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat. There are also features on the show’s famous theme tune; the recovery of a lost TV episode; the cancellation of Shada and the legendary exhibition at Blackpool, along with excerpts from a radio programme broadcast live from a Doctor Who convention!
Louise Jameson (Leela) is your guide on this entertaining tour behind the scenes of the series which has been entertaining us all for an astonishing half century.
