APPEAL: Do you have any of the lost serials?

At present, nineteen serials (and one incomplete serial) of Sonovision's The Avengers are known to exist. It is understood that no tapes were retained at the time of broadcast by Sonovision Studios or by the South African Broadcasting Corporation, although serials have apparently aired in the 1970s and 1980s in New Zealand, Australia and the United States.

Almost all the programmes which are known to have survived are private recordings made in South Africa from the original radio broadcasts. The exceptions are two of the three existing existing episodes of Escape in Time: Version Two, which are sourced from production tapes. All these hail from the later period of the series and they form the following serials, which are complete unless otherwise stated:

A Deadly Gift

Mrs. Peel... We're Needed!

Mrs. Peel... 
We really are needed!

The serials listed to the right are currently being remastered from original off-air recordings (for details, see the Restoration Project section of this website).

Copies of the restored recordings have been lodged with the SABC Radio Sound Archive in South Africa for preservation.
