One of my friends in New York says he found episode 5 of the "The Evil of the Daleks" story arc at an estate sale today. He's selling it to the BBC. Just thought I'd share.
He then later adds on 06-17-2008, 10:49 PM you
Being as I've never seen Doctor Who (and have no idea what it even is), I don't know if it's good or bad. He said that with this, three of the episodes are still MIA, but I would expect you guys to know better than I would.

Yeah, sure. Can't say as I was expecting that, but I'll let him know you guys want to know what's going on with it.

I have no idea what Whovian is...
I really don't think this guy would lie to me, especially about something I feel is so petty as this (since I flat out told him I had no idea what the show even was), but I'll let him know you guys are interested.
David French posted the following query to the RT Forum and got the reply given below from Steve Roberts. The response "No idea. There's no precedent." seems indirectly to indicate that the rumor is nonsense.
David French 16mm film recordings queries Thu Jun 19 2008 23:32:38 219.089.203.223
Two queries regarding 16mm film recordings, and they're based on the thread over at DWF regarding "Evil/Daleks" 5.
1. Someone has posted that "There are probably more 16mm prints of Dr. Who in the USA than anywhere other than the BBC archives...." - True or False?
2. If someone did find a missing 16mm film recording of a BBC show, would that person be able to sell it back to BBC Worldwide?

1) I think that's probably true, but only because Steve Sigel, who has the biggest collection of DW films in the world, lives in the US! So there probably are more in the US than any other single place except the BBC archives, but they're mostly the property of one guy...
