TV Fact #302 – August 21st, 2015:

Most of the British show “Not Only… But Also” (1965-1970) was erased by the BBC under their policy of wiping master videotapes (which at that time were expensive) for reuse. In fact, only eight of the original twenty-two episodes completely survived. Series creators and co-lead actors of the show, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, had offered to buy the BBC new tapes, but they were refused. However, there are compilations that use material from foreign networks’ copies and remaining 16mm film inserts.
