Your BBC Radio 4 Update

Lots to listen to coming up on BBC Radio 4 - luckily, we can use "listen again" on the iPlayer.  And, anyway, haven't I employed enough BBC actors by now to get to use the damn thing here? :)

Here's a cool one:  

Doctor Who - The Lost Episodes:  Shaun Ley investigates what happened to 108 missing episodes of Doctor Who from the 1960s, why the tapes were wiped and how dedicated fans hunted down copies of other episodes in film collections from Cyprus to New Zealand. And while we may have lost those early programmes, Shaun hears how home recordings ensured all the audio survived.

Video: Yet Another Promo for the End of Time

With The End of Time approaching, the BBC has released yet another promo "trailer" for it. Time will end this Christmas. Happy Holidays.

Happy (Belated) Birthday to Nicholas Courtney

Nicholas Courtney in May 1986A belated Happy Birthday to Nicholas Courtney who turned 80 on the 16th of December. Nicholas Courtney has been connected to the Doctor Who series going back to when William Hartnell was the Doctor. He is best known for his role as Brigadier Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart. Aside from appearing in two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures last year (Enemy of the Bane parts 1 and 2), he has yet to appear in the series since its return in 2005, although there have been some references. 

A special birthday wish and thank you goes out to Nicholas Courtney for the years of enjoyment he has brought to our screens throughout time and space.
