TV Fact #372 – October 30th, 2015:

The British television comedy series “Broaden Your Mind” (1968-1969) was one of BBC2’s earliest programmes to be completely broadcast in colour, which had been introduced by the network a year earlier. Sadly, this achievement didn’t stop it from having all of is programmes wiped by the BBC after their first broadcast in 1968 with only a handful of brief filmed sequences having survived. These surviving sequences were included, digitally restored, on Network DVDs 2003 release, “The Goodies At Last”. It should be noted though that all of the programmes survive as off-air audio recordings made by a fan at the time of original transmission. So cheers to fandom!
