In the early seventies, Pamela Nash was in charge of maintaining BBC Enterprises' cache of telerecording prints. Initially, she had ordered the creation of many of the film negatives from the original videotapes. However by 1972, it was also Pamela Nash who ordered the destruction of many of the original prints. It is uncertain to this day whether Ms Nash was aware that she might be destroying a large portion of television history. This site pays homage to the episodes of Doctor Who now missing thanks to Pamela and her motto "No one wants them, they're only old black and white prints"!
