Iceberg containing the first 400 articles I wrote.

Status: Varies really, but writing articles here is always a joy

Hey there. I am SpaceManiac888, an English user on the Lost Media Wiki. I primarily focus on writing articles regarding British media, professional wrestling, robot combat, and anything that peaks my interest.

Background[edit | edit source]

My first foray into lost media came about in the early-2010s, when I took a gander at the lost BBC broadcasts, including most famously the lost Doctor Who episodes. But it was not until mid-2015 that I became deeply interested, thanks to Blameitonjorge's videos. Indeed, I think the bloke has inspired many Lost Media Wiki users and lost media-focused YouTubers. But anyhow, I first wrote articles on Worms Battle Rally and Robot Wars on 2nd July, 2015, but on the Lost Media Wikia first. Both articles were kindly transferred over to here, and I wrote my first article on this Wiki the following day about Top Gear's unaired segments.

For the first few years, I created some articles on and off, mainly on topics that influenced me growing up. By early-2021 however, the well was starting to dry, and I wanted to do something different for the Wiki. So I thought taking a look at 1930s-1960s television would be a good idea, especially considering the lack of articles anywhere on the Wiki or outside of it. Starting with Telecrime, the first televised crime drama, I have since become highly active on the Lost Media Wiki, publishing many articles throughout 2021 alone. This obviously was not just early television, but also in other intriguing areas including lost recordings of real incidents, obscure games, and other oddities containing their own mysteries.

I started 2021 on the Wiki with 21 articles, but finished the year on 162. As of the time of this writing, I have now written over 400. I am not sure whether this makes me the most prolific article creator on the Wiki, but hey, I never thought I would reached that many articles, and I have learnt so much during my research for these articles. I therefore thought an iceberg would be a good way to celebrate, and who knows, it might make for a detailed YouTube video in the future. Of course, some of you may note I have written plenty of darker topics worthy of the NSFW and NSFL tags. Keep in mind that my goal with these articles is not to upset folks nor to seek said media outside of tamer ones like Robot Wars and To Catch a Predator, but instead to provide adequate resources for people to respectfully learn the backgrounds surrounding the media. Essentially, I aim to ensure the stories behind said media are not forgotten, no matter how upsetting they may be, as they could allow for negative history to not be repeated.

YouTube Videos[edit | edit source]

Some of you might know me as a contributor of the Robot Wars Wiki. Indeed, I worked with a few other regular contributors to produce a History Podcast detailed to talking about the show's various lost media. Give it a listen, as you will also learn about some other media that is not quite suitable for this Wiki, including deleted game content. I may work on other lost media YouTube projects in the future.

Article List[edit | edit source]

Number Title Date of completion Notes
1 Worms Battle Rally (lost builds of unfinished 3D kart game; 2003) 2 July 2015 A rather obscure cancelled spin-off of the Worms series, which was assumed to have been a vehicular combat karting game.
2 Robot Wars (partially found unaired or partially aired battles of BBC robot combat game show; 1998-2017) 2 July 2015 (updated 4 February 2021) Originally focusing exclusively on Hypno-Disc vs TX-108, now details every missing unaired battle that did not warrant a separate article about them.
3 Top Gear (partially found unaired segments of BBC motoring show; 2002-2015) 3 July 2015 Collection of binned or unfinished segments of Top Gear. I stated 2002-2015 not only to distinguish from the older version of Top Gear, but also the series aired from 2016 onwards.
4 Top Gear - Series 22: Episode 10 (lost footage of unfinished episode of BBC motoring show; 2015) 24 August 2015 The unfinished episode whereby Jeremy Clarkson was so unhappy, he punched a producer over food.
5 BattleBots (partially lost build of unreleased GameCube/PlayStation 2 game based on robot combat TV series; 2003) 21 November 2015 Almost completed robot combat game based on the gameshow of the same name. Near the top of my "most-wanted" lost media, since prototypes have been sold before...
6 American Robot Wars 2000 (lost MTV pilot of British robot combat game show; 2000) 5 March 2016 This pilot would lead to the American spin-off, Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors on TNN.
7 Robot Wars Revealed (found BBC Choice spin-off of robot combat game show; 1998-2000) 25 May 2017 Victim to the lack of digital TV viewers back in the day, but can now be accessed on Mech+
8 Grand Prix 4 (lost build of cancelled Xbox port of PC Formula One racing game sequel; 2002) 6 June 2017 Xbox port of one of my favourite PC games.
9 Robot Wars: Series 8 (lost unaired pilot of BBC robot combat game show; 2016) 18 June 2017 Another lost Robot Wars media article I have written, and the most recent lost Robot Wars media I believe.
10 Robots Revenge (partially found Discovery robot combat documentary series; 2001) 9 July 2017 My tenth article was on one of the more obscure lost robot combat television media.
11 WWF In Your House 8: Beware Of Dog (partially found untelevised professional wrestling matches; 1996) 15 July 2017 Lost media focusing on when the WWF suffered a powercut to their PPV feed!
12 The TNT Show (lost unaired Michael Jackson sketch of Channel 4 comedy show; 2009) 26 August 2017 Wrote about this article thanks to knowing about it from a YouTube video.
13 Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors: Season 1 (found TNN robot combat gameshow; 2001) 2 September 2017 My fifth Robot Wars article, focusing on lost battles that were eventually found not long after this article was created!
14 Robot Wars: The Kick-Off (lost BNN robot combat special; 2001) 23 September 2017 My sixth Robot Wars article, focusing on an obscure Dutch Robot Wars special, broadcast before Series 1.
15 Southern Television broadcast intrusion (lost real-time footage of television hijack; 1977) 15 January 2019 Like many, I believed this was already found. However, my research indicates the versions on YouTube are actually just recreations. Hence, I wonder whether any recordings of the actual event still remain.
16 BBC News Guy Kewney interview (lost unaired interview footage; 2006) 23 February 2020 The infamous "wrong Guy" also gave us some lost media to find. Became a Featured Article at some point.
17 Beat the Crusher (partially found Sky One gameshow; 1998) 20 June 2020 Based on the only episode available, it is not a great show.
18 The Jeremy Kyle Show (lost unaired Steve Dymond episode of British daytime talk show; 2019) 17 December 2020 My first NSFL article, concerning a tragedy that unfortunately was bound to occur at some point during the show's run.
19 Grand Prix 3 (lost build of cancelled Dreamcast port of PC Formula One racing game; 2001) 18 December 2020 I fondly remember playing the released PC version of this game. Certainly one to play, if you are an F1 fan.
20 F-1 World Grand Prix III (lost build of cancelled Nintendo 64 Formula One racing game; 2000-2001) 19 December 2020 Originally could not confirm the game's existence, but with some help from another Lost Media Wiki user, this is one game that theoretically could be available at some point. Became a Featured Article in January 2021.
21 F1 Racing Championship 2 (lost build of cancelled PC/PlayStation 2 Formula One game; 2001) 26 December 2020 There were just so many F1 games back in the late 1990s to early 2000s. Probably would not have been a success compared to competitors like EA's F1, Sony's PlayStation series, and Grand Prix 4.
22 Screwed: The Bret Hart Story (lost unfinished wrestling documentary film; 2005) 3 February 2021 First film article I have written, concerning Bret Hart potentially being "buried" by other wrestlers had he not decided to work with WWE on an alternative documentary! Became a Featured Article in April 2021.
23 1995 Robot Wars UK Open (partially found rejected robot combat TV show pilot; 1995) 15 April 2021 Yes, another article based on Robot Wars! Not sure if there is much else Robot Wars lost media to document, though never say never! Anyhow, this rejected pilot paved the way for Robot Wars' dominant UK arrival.
24 Telecrime (lost early BBC crime drama; 1938-1939; 1946) 18 April 2021 First crime television show according to Guinness World Records, thought it would be worth writing an article on it, even if there is no chance of recovery.
25 Cook's Night Out (lost early BBC cooking show; 1937) 18 April 2021 First cooking television show, and the start of me writing about Marcel Boulestin's programs!
26 Dish of the Month (lost early BBC cooking show; 1937) 18 April 2021 I believe Guinness World Records accidentally claimed this was the first cooking show. Close, but no cigar.
27 Marcel Boulestin television shorts (lost early BBC programs; 1937-1939) 18 April 2021 Collection of Boulestin shows that were too small to warrant separate articles.
28 Foundations of Cookery (lost early BBC cooking show; 1939) 18 April 2021 Finally, we complete the Boulestin collection, with his last television show. He never got to make another one, following the Second World War and his passing in 1943.
29 The Wasp's Nest (lost early BBC television adaptation of Agatha Christie short story; 1937) 19 April 2021 The only televised adaptation Agatha Christie herself wrote. Did she or did she not dislike television soon afterwards? Who knows!
30 Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling (lost early BBC televised professional wrestling matches; 1938-1939; 1946-1947) 20 April 2021 Televised professional wrestling starts here. Lovely.
31 The Blood Red Tape of Charity (lost Universal silent short propaganda drama film; 1913) 23 April 2021 One of my most sought after silent films, just because of the context behind it.
32 Arsenal vs Arsenal Reserves (lost footage of early BBC televised football match; 1937) 29 April 2021 Started out documenting professional wrestling, so it only makes sense to do so for football too!
33 Bryant & May (lost early matches commercial; 1896) 1 May 2021 The first commercial, what can I say? Piece of history here.
34 England 0-1 Scotland (partially found international football match; 1938) 1 May 2021 Not happy with the result as an Englishman, ha ha. Still, a worthy piece of history that I am glad has some available footage attached to it.
35 Hyde Park Corner (partially found early celluloid actuality film; 1889) 1 May 2021 Arguably the most important article I have written on this Wiki. A lot of mystery surrounds it though, especially when it comes to the title alone! Hopefully, those film frames are legitimate.
36 Bret Hart-Hulk Hogan photoshoot (lost professional wrestling promotional photos; 1993) 1 May 2021 Detail photos meant for a slobberknocker of a Summerslam 1993 fight! If, you know, they actually went ahead with this match.
37 1937 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1937) 2 May 2021 The first competitive football match to be broadcast on television!
38 1938 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1938) 3 May 2021 The first fully televised FA Cup Final. Preston North End notably appeared in the first two televised Finals, redeeming itself here.
39 1939 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1939) 3 May 2021 Portsmouth were champions for seven years thanks to World War 2.
40 First Aid (lost early BBC medical show; 1937) 9 May 2021 An obscure medical documentary series, possibly the first of its kind.
41 Robert Budd Dwyer's Final Speech (partially found footage of press conference; 1987) 9 May 2021 Of all the lost media I have documented, this ranks up there as having the saddest story attached to it. To think that Dwyer was innocent, or at the very least had his role in the conspiracy worsened by false confessions, is highly troubling.
42 The Boat Race 1938 (partially found footage of rowing race; 1938) 10 May 2021 Well, one could say that the 1937 one had some television coverage, but had no footage attached to it. Therefore, I am not going to dispute the 1938 race as being the first televised one. Article also discusses the 1937 coverage, and the subsequent program reviewing the 1929-1938 races, Rowing Blues.
43 Father Ted "Going to America" (lost alternate ending of TV sitcom finale; 1998) 12 May 2021 Fan of Father Ted, had heard of the alternative ending for years, though I did not it was actually filmed until much later. Would have been an awful ending though, even when not taking Dermot Morgan's untimely passing into account.
44 Doctor Who "The Parting of the Ways" (lost alternate ending of British sci-fi TV series finale; 2005) 13 May 2021 An ending never intended to be an actual ending. Huh. Would love to see it one day, though!
45 SCP-048 (partially found original versions of science-fiction story; 2008-2009) 17 May 2021 Is this the only case where the lost media is a bunch of poor quality Wiki articles?
46 England 16-21 Scotland (partially found footage of rugby match; 1938) 22 May 2021 First televised rugby match, and of course England have to lose again...
47 WWE SmackDown vs Raw Online (lost build of cancelled online professional wrestling PC game; 2010-2011) 23 May 2021 Bit of a weird one, this. Two conflicting titles for this game (the other being WWE Online), this professional wrestling game was targeted more for the Korean market than WWE's traditional audience. Intended for late-2010, definitely cancelled by 2011!
48 Ann and Harold (lost early BBC drama television series; 1938) 29 May 2021 The first television series to ever exist!
49 The 1938 Ashes series (partially found footage of test cricket match; 1938) 30 May 2021 Almost reached a half-century in articles (was a half-century when I used to count Racing Arrows here!!), so what better way to mark the occasion than with a cricket article? Of course, England once again could not win here...
50 Ian Brady's briefcases (lost personal documents of Moors Murderer; 1963-2017) 16 June 2021 A harrowing piece of lost media, felt a bit disturbed upon having to delve deeper into the Moors Murder cases in order to establish a quality article. Fingers-crossed that the briefcases' contents are finally released, and that they point to where Keith Bennett's body is located.
51 Dead Space 2 (lost build of cancelled Wii port of sci-fi survival horror game sequel; 2011) 18 June 2021 I know little about the Dead Space series, but with some research, I bumped in a quick article about the cancelled Wii port. Quite obscure, based only on the LinkedIn pages that claimed it was in development before being cancelled.
52 The Simpsons Game 2 (lost build of cancelled platform game sequel; 2011) 18 June 2021 I thought this game was a bit underrated back in the day. A shame a sequel was never made, but it seems based on the sources gathered that it wasn't a popular game worthy of a sequel...
53 The Simpsons: Hit & Run 2 (lost builds of cancelled action-adventure game sequel; 2007) 19 June 2021 Now the fact a sequel for this Simpsons game never happened is such a tragedy. You would think EA would have considered it at one point, seeing how commercially successful the game was, let alone how critically acclaimed it came to be!
54 1998 Cavalese cable car disaster cockpit recording (lost footage of aviation-related accident; 1998) 20 June 2021 I learnt about this disaster upon watching the Seconds From Disaster episode covering it, and was just as outraged as many others were concerning the pilots' conduct. This piece of lost media may never be recovered, sadly.
55 The Diamond Brothers: South by South East (lost ITV adaptation of children's detective book; 1991) 20 June 2021 Amazingly, there was a six-part adaptation of the book South by South East. Having enjoyed the Diamond Brothers book series as a child, this is one piece of lost media I truly want to resurface one day.
56 Brainiac's Test Tube Baby (partially found Sky One science entertainment spin-off show; 2006-2007) 21 June 2021 Spin-off show of one of my favourite childhood programs. That said, I never found the spin-off to be that interesting, to be quite honest.
57 Ofcom Summary of Adjudication (partially found British broadcast communication regulator statements; 2003-present) 26 June 2021 For most, this would be a rather boring topic. However, I like the documentation of TV controversy, so I guess this is relevant lost media for me!
58 1996 DeVilbiss SuperFinish 200 (lost televised footage of NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race; 1996) 10 July 2021 First NASCAR article, and to be honest, I have no idea whether NBC footage actually exists or not. Taking Racing-Reference's word for it!
59 Columbia Lions 1-2 Princeton Tigers (partially found footage of college baseball game; 1939) 10 July 2021 First televised baseball game, and the first sporting event televised in the US. Ze Germans and the British beat the Yanks to the punch in televising sport, though!
60 Spelling Bee (lost early BBC game show; 1938) 11 July 2021 Listed by Guinness World Records as the first ever television game show.
61 RCA recording of BBC Television Service (found footage of pre-Second World War BBC television broadcast; 1938) 15 July 2021 A pre-Lost Media Wiki find, this is likely to be the only pre-Second World War BBC television footage one will ever get to see. That said, if RCA had in mind to record television, perhaps someone else, living in London, might have as well.
62 The Care of Your Car (lost early BBC motoring show; 1947) 15 July 2021 Before Top Gear and what have you, this was the show you would seek for motoring information! Probably.
63 Why Hypno-Disc can't work in an office (found testing video of Robot Wars competitor; 2000, 2007) 18 July 2021 Found on 24th September, 2021! Good to finally see a video explaining why Hypno-Disc simply isn't capable of being productive within an office.
64 Robot Wars (lost work on unfinished cartoon series based on robot combat gameshow; existence unconfirmed; 2002-2004) 1 August 2021 Another Robot Wars article, and this time I have one that I cannot verify. Does it exist beyond a conceptual stage? Unknown for now, though if footage does exist, I most certainly want to see it!
65 Robot Wars (lost near death footage of Jeremy Clarkson from robot combat gameshow; 1998) 1 August 2021 Had this accident occurred, there would be no Top Gear reboot, no Robot Wars, no Grand Tour, no lost media from this and other future Clarkson shows, ha ha.
66 Robot Wars Extreme: Series 1 (lost original BBC Choice version of robot combat battle; 2001) 4 August 2021 A NSFL article on Robot Wars? Mainly because of the 2001 US Anthrax attacks, which were horrendous based on the research I conducted.
67 Robot Wars (partially found uncut battles from BBC robot combat gameshow; 1998-2017) 6 August 2021 Out of the uncut battles available, the most interesting to me is Hypno-Disc vs Splinter, because of how little is left of Splinter after what Hypno-Disc and the House Robots did to it.
68 To Catch a Predator (partially found chatlogs, uncut interviews and police interrogations of Dateline NBC reality series; 2004-2007) 8 August 2021 One of the biggest articles I have written, for one of my all-time favourite shows. Surprised nobody wrote about TCAP on here before I did, to be honest.
69 Jules Bianchi (lost FOM footage of fatal Formula One crash; 2014) 13 August 2021 So depressing to consider that despite all the preventable issues occurring, this fatal accident still had an extremely low chance of occurring. Only justifies the need to enhance Formula One safety still further.
70 Angelo Orsi's photos of Ayrton Senna (lost photos of Formula One driver post-crash; 1994) 15 August 2021 The other lost media concerning Senna's tragic accident, and arguably the worse of the two. Glad Orsi stuck to his guns by never releasing the photos.
71 The Great Train Robbery (lost work on action-adventure video game; existence unconfirmed; 1999) 18 August 2021 I can hardly believe it myself, but indeed, Ronnie Biggs and Bruce Reynolds were involved in this game that was announced, and then just forgotten almost as soon as the concept was revealed. Was any work made on it before Biggs' arrest? Unsure for now.
72 Jim'll Fix It (partially found BBC television show; 1975-1994) 23 August 2021 The main television show by one of the biggest monsters to have ever lived. It should be noted that someone is uploading much of previously lost Jimmy Savile media, so expect more from Jim'll Fix It episodes to come to light in the near future.
73 Newsnight (partially found untelevised BBC report concerning Jimmy Savile sexual abuse allegations; 2011) 4 September 2021 The BBC really dropped the ball on this one. Sure, the whole scandal was uncovered less than a year later, but for many of Savile's and other personalities' victims, the sooner these monsters were exposed, the better.
74 Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors: Season 2 (partially found behind-the-scenes footage of TNN robot combat gameshow; 2002) 4 September 2021 Yep, another lost Robot Wars media article, concerning footage partially shown in a Newsround segment that I stumbled across a few year back.
75 Futurama (lost build of cancelled GameCube port of 3D platform game; 2003) 6 September 2021 Tried my best to enjoy this game as a child, unfortunately I never really did. Strange a near-complete GameCube port was cancelled worldwide, though.
76 R. Lee Ermey's instructional tape (lost audition footage for Full Metal Jacket; 1985) 8 September 2021 150 pages worth of insults is incredible for the average person, but for Ermey, it was probably about par!
77 Stephen Griffiths aka "The Crossbow Cannibal" (partially found CCTV footage of Bradford murder, death photos, and recorded dismemberment footage; 2009-2010) 9 September 2021 While Issei Sagawa was bad enough, Stephen Griffiths was truly terrifying. Surprised his case doesn't get discussed much. What disturbed me when writing this was I assumed only a bit of CCTV footage was missing. Now, I know photos and dismemberment footage were also taken. Chilling stuff.
78 Anthoine Hubert and Juan Manuel Correa (partially found FOM footage of fatal Formula 2 crash; 2019) 14 September 2021 A horrendous crash I was lucky not to watch live, as I had to travel on the day, where typically in a Formula One weekend, I would watch most events if possible. RIP Hubert, and I hope Correa continues his recovery, as he has made amazing progress in returning to Formula 3 alone.
79 1936 Summer Olympics (lost television coverage of Berlin Games; 1936) 14 September 2021 The first Olympics to be televised live! Really fascinating how the Games were televised, and how initial coverage was below par, even for 1936 standards!
80 Sea Stories (lost early BBC talk show; 1936-1937) 15 September 2021 The first televised talk show so to speak, with Commander Campbell chosen because he could produce compelling stories without needing a script.
81 The TNT Show (partially found Channel 4 comedy sketch show; 2009) 16 September 2021 Turns out most of the show is missing, rather than just the unaired Michael Jackson sketch. I expect this one to resurface in the future, though.
82 1976 Dixie 500 (lost CBS footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 19 September 2021 Most famous for featuring a heavy crash for Dale Earnhardt, where apparently he felt "like the winning horse of the Kentucky Derby had trampled me" the next day!
83 1964 World 600 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1964) 20 September 2021 It is especially tragic how Fireball Roberts was not actually badly affected by the crash itself, but from the fire as he was trapped in his wrecked car. NASCAR has come a long way since then, and fuel leakages leading to fires like this are not really possible anymore.
84 Celebrity Number Six (lost original photo of unidentified celebrity; date unknown) 23 September 2021 This must certainly be the oddity of the entire list so far, because I tend to focus on mostly mainstream content rather than internet mysteries. Still, it is very perplexing nobody can find out who Celebrity Number Six is, and if they really are a celebrity at all. Maybe finding the photo will bring answers.
85 1981 Pocono 500 (lost televised footage of IndyCar race; 1981) 25 September 2021 Speaking of oddities, this must certainly be the most unusual IndyCar race out there, considering the fact Gold and Silver Crown cars were competing in the same race. Would love to see this one resurface one day.
86 1937 Wimbledon Championships (partially found footage of tennis tournament; 1937) 27 September 2021 Uncovered a lot more information than I was expecting, hence why it took a long time to write. Still, it was worth it in the end, and another "television sporting first" has been documented.
87 Broadcasting Standards Commission (partially found British broadcast communication regulator statements; 1981-2003) 28 September 2021 Want to learn what the British folk of the 80s to early-2000s used to grumble about on television? Well, this article contains a lot of BCC and BSC videos documenting complaints made to BBC, ITV and other channels, and hopefully more will resurface in the future!
88 Independent Television Commission (partially found British broadcast communication regulator statements; 1991-2003) 28 September 2021 Little did ITC and the many complainants realise, the Brass Eye special proved its point very much concerning British outrage and moral panic! Hopefully more ITC statements will resurface in the future.
89 Robot Wars (lost footage and HSE documentation of behind-the-scenes accidents of BBC robot combat game show; 1998-1999) 2 October 2021 (major rework 12 February 2022) Arguably Robot Wars' biggest controversies, which wasn't really detailed much until late-2018. Hopefully, somebody still holds the HSE documents, as they would be the final piece to help document what transpired during filming. Updated to include incidents from Series 1 and 2, and to raise the possibility of footage existing too.
90 Fordham Rams 34-7 Waynesburg Yellow Jackets (lost footage of college football game; 1939) 2 October 2021 Some reckon an NFL game between Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Eagles was the first televised football game, but this Fordham Rams win holds that distinction... or does it?! Apparently, a University of Pennsylvania game in 1938 was televised... to six people. And there are rumours of a broadcast in 1934, which is especially interesting to me.
91 1934 Philo T. Farnsworth broadcasts (lost early television demonstrations; 1934) 3 October 2021 Paving the way for electronic television and football broadcasts, folks! That explains the 1934 broadcast above.
92 1938 Pennsylvania Quakers football season (lost early televised college football games; 1938) 3 October 2021 And this explains the 1938 University of Pennsylvania game! First televised college football game I believe.
93 Sports 5 (lost build of cancelled unlicensed Sega Genesis/Super Nintendo sports compilation game; early 1990s) 6 October 2021 If Active Enterprises' games quality matched their passion, they would have the best games in the world. Alas, they were too ambitious for their own good!
94 Brooklyn Dodgers 23-14 Philadelphia Eagles (lost footage of NFL game; 1939) 9 October 2021 The first televised NFL game, but only the fourth football game to be televised.
95 Brooklyn Dodgers 2-5 6-1 Cincinnati Reds (lost footage of MLB doubleheader; 1939) 10 October 2021 And here is the first televised MLB game! Unless I am very much mistaken, this should be the second baseball game to be televised. But, I could be wrong of course!
96 Braden Walker's "Knock Knock" promo (lost original pre-tapes of WWE backstage segment; 2008) 10 October 2021 If someone can retrieve the pre-tapes, we might be able to extend the Braden Walker DVD collection to four sets! Damn, this segment was so bad, ha ha.
97 1953 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One race; 1953) 13 October 2021 The first live televised Formula One race. Ascari was still too dominant, even with a somewhat competitive Maserati giving him challenges unlike in 1952.
98 1937 International Imperial Trophy Race (lost footage of motor race; 1937) 17 October 2021 The first live televised motor race, ever. Won by a Prince in fact! Somewhat obscure compared to other sporting television firsts, so hopefully this gets more recognition.
99 1960 Daytona Races (lost CBS and NBC televised footage of NASCAR prelude events to Daytona 500; 1960) 17 October 2021 The first live televised NASCAR races. Thought I would also mention NBC's broadcast, since I felt I would forget to make an article about it. Not to mention, I doubt there is much more to say than what has already written in this article, so probably no need to split them apart.
100 Worms World Party (lost build of cancelled Gizmondo port of artillery turn-based strategy game; 2005) 17 October 2021 And there we have it, Article 100! Started with Worms, and more than six years later, I revisit it. A port of one of my favourite games ever, for a console deemed one of the least successful of all-time. Lovely combination for a Lost Media Wiki article.
101 Mont Blanc Tunnel fire (partially found CCTV footage of road tunnel disaster; 1999) 25 October 2021 I watched the Seconds From Disaster episode about this many years ago, and sadly it was clear nobody from the French side would be able to survive that.
102 Pierlucio Tinazzi (lost radio communication from Mont Blanc Tunnel fire victim; 1999) 27 October 2021 While Tinazzi may not have saved anyone, it should not downplay his heroism on that fateful day.
103 1931 Epsom Derby (lost televised footage of horse racing event; 1931) 28 October 2021 Officially the first televised sporting event and remote outside broadcast!
104 Darts and Shove Ha'penny (lost early BBC televised darts matches; 1936-1939) 30 October 2021 First televised darts matches. Very much a fan of darts, since 2009 no less.
105 1966 FIFA World Cup Final (partially found original colour film of international football match; 1966) 30 October 2021 Sadly, it didn't come home in Euro 2020. Still, better luck next time! Anyhow, this is another piece of unfortunately destroyed media, though at least there is now Full Colour '66 if you want to see the full match in colour.
106 2005 San Marino Grand Prix (found ITV advert break during final laps of Formula One race; 2005) 1 November 2021 An "oh, fudge" situation for ITV here. Cannot say I am too nostalgic for ITV coverage of F1 races, ha ha.
107 Windows XP (lost unlicensed Famicom game based on Windows operating system; 2003) 1 November 2021 Apologies in advance for making many of you feel old, but Windows XP recently turned 20... Yup, loved the XP growing up. So what better way to belatedly celebrate this anniversary by discussing this weird Famicom... err game I guess.
108 WWE Brawl (lost build of cancelled fighting game based on professional wrestling; 2012) 3 November 2021 Only so many references needed this time thanks to a highly detailed WWE.com article! This game has so many screenshots, concept art and videos that I was spoilt for choice. Only so many are on the article for the sake of brevity, though the rest can be found on WWE.com.
109 F1 2010 (lost pre-alpha build of Formula One game; 2010) 3 November 2021 The fact the 2009 cars were removed because of licencing issues is so unfortunate. Would have been fantastic to have both those and the 2010 competitors.
110 Fernando Alonso (lost footage of Formula One test session crash; 2015) 4 November 2021 One of the most unusual crashes in motorsport history, and is still quite the mystery to this day. Would be great if the footage resurfaced one day.
111 WCW/nWo Live (lost build of cancelled PlayStation professional wrestling game; 1998) 4 November 2021 What happens when one cancels a licence a little too soon! On another note, the poster attached to this article is by far one of my favourites. Looks like The Giant either punched or chokeslammed the victim, DDP laughing at their predicament, Kevin Nash not giving a damn (why would he waste his time on this loser?), and Scott Hall finishing the guy off.
112 McLaren MP4-18 (lost footage of unraced Formula One car; 2003) 9 November 2021 The most famous F1 car never to race. It might not look much today, but back then, it really was a revolution!
113 The Sun (lost British newspaper's safe of unpublished photos, stories and videos; early-1980s-present) 10 November 2021 Another article with a fascinating mystery. Does the safe contain compromising material? Heck, material that could criminalise people in the public life? Who knows?
114 The Jeremy Kyle Show (partially found episodes and online content of British daytime talk show; 2005-2019) 10 November 2021 Waited a long time before writing this article, just in case ITV or another company announced they would re-air all the episodes. As of yet, they haven't.
115 The Jeremy Kyle Show (partially found American spin-off of British daytime talk show; 2011-2013) 11 November 2021 Likewise for this article. It is frustrating, because half of the library is on Amazon Prime UK, but not even VPN can make them available!
116 Top Gear (partially found footage of Cenotaph stunt; 2016) 15 November 2021 Unfortunate that filming occurred at the Cenotaph, as otherwise it probably would have been a well-regarded segment in a bad period for the show.
117 Life After People (partially found uncut CGI of History television series; 2008-2010) 16 November 2021 One of my favourite shows growing up, with most of it due to the show's extremely beautiful CGI.
118 Clunk-Click (partially found Jimmy Savile variety show; 1973-1974) 18 November 2021 Even the term "clunk-click" gives sinister connotations nowadays. Pretty much all the clips currently available online are harrowing considering the actions of Gary Glitter and those alleged of Savile and Freddie Starr.
119 Untitled Gary Glitter Studio Album (lost unreleased music from glam rock singer; 2008) 18 November 2021 Speaking of Glitter, I wonder if he will be able to even complete the album now that he is in a well-deserved 16-year prison stint. Fingers-crossed he doesn't get transferred to an open jail.
120 Seaman (lost work on 3DS sequel to virtual pet game; 2012) 19 November 2021 Interesting game is Seaman, or SEA MAN depending on who you ask, ha ha. Curious as to how much work Yoot Saito put into the 3DS sequel before "complications" occurred.
121 Celebrity Wrestling (partially found ITV professional wrestling reality show; 2005) 19 November 2021 Imagine choosing this over Doctor Who! A shame really, because they did have some star power in Roddy Piper and D'Lo Brown, but instead of a proper show where the celebrities got a ton of training, ITV just had to add a "reality" curve.
122 Williams FW15C (partially found footage and lap time information of unraced CVT Formula One car; 1993) 28 November 2021 Somewhat a tribute to Sir Frank Williams, featuring perhaps one of his best cars with a feature that would have made it unstoppable if it actually was utilised in a race.
123 Leslie Van Houten's sexual letter relationship (lost letter communication between Manson Family member and unknown double murderer; pre-2016) 1 December 2021 Perhaps a topical article, considering the "spoiled princess" has been recommended for parole again. Hopefully, common sense prevails and she stays in prison! Likewise for all the other followers.
124 Charles Manson's letters to Leslie Van Houten (lost prison letters from Manson Family leader to follower; 2013) 1 December 2021 I have to be honest, I don't find Charles Manson to be that interesting. But his followers? Now, they are a different story altogether! Fascinating all around...
125 Plunderbirds: Talk Robots (partially found unfinished robot combat mockumentary film; 2019) 2 December 2021 A shame it never got released, as it would have made for a fun robot combat mockumentary. I wonder if they 'ave got a srimech yet (course they 'ave!).
126 Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (partially found Irish broadcast communication regulator statements; 2009-present) 14 December 2021 After writing articles concerning regulators resolving British grumblings, I think an Irish counterpart would be appropriate!
127 WWF Backlash (non-existent unfinished Nintendo 64 professional wrestling game; 2001) 14 December 2021 Helping to debunk a wrestling game urban legend that fooled several major wrestling YouTube channels!
128 TNA Impact! 2 (lost build of unfinished professional wrestling game; 2009) 14 December 2021 A shame TNA never got a proper sequel following the bankruptcy of Midway Games. Would have helped them through the tough times ahead.
129 ECW Anarchy Rulz (lost build of cancelled Nintendo 64 port of professional wrestling game; existence unconfirmed; 2000) 14 December 2021 Not sure that the official Nintendo Power magazine would make this claim up from thin air, so I guess there is a possibility of it existing! After all, in the ECW matches at the E3 2000 convention, a N64 controller was used during the Rhino-Roadkill match.
130 Strange Kentucky People (lost recording of Chris Jericho "tribute"; 1994) 15 December 2021 As a big wrestling fan, I won't deny that the sport does have its, well, unusual fans to say the least.
131 GFW Amped (partially found unaired professional wrestling show; 2015) 16 December 2021 All that hype about GFW being the next great wrestling organisation, only for very little to be released! A shame the tapes were deleted, as the wrestlers put their might into making the matches as entertaining as possible.
132 Bret Hart vs Tom Magee (found untelevised professional wrestling match; 1986) 17 December 2021 Surprised this one was yet to be written on the Wiki! Historical lost media, to the point where WWE made a documentary about it once it was finally found!
133 The Last Battle of Atlanta (found untelevised professional wrestling steel cage match; 1983) 17 December 2021 A major bloodbath that inspired Hell in a Cell!
134 WCW All Nighter (partially lost professional wrestling compilation show; 1994-1995) 18 December 2021 A fantastic idea by WCW considering the lack of home media releases at the time.
135 WCW Classics (partially found professional wrestling compilation show; 2000-2001) 18 December 2021 Probably the only consistently "good" WCW show by this point, ha ha.
136 WWF Livewire (partially found professional wrestling recap and talk show; 1996-2001) 19 December 2021 A fascinating show for its time, though it wasn't great for Kayfabe purposes! Also, the origins of the Jim Cornette-Vince Russo feud!
137 WWF Excess (partially found professional wrestling talk show; 2001-2002) 19 December 2021 This show simply was not going to challenge Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, among other programs, ha.
138 WWF Attitude (lost professional wrestling recap show; 2001-2002) 20 December 2021 An obscure compilation/recap show with the most unoriginal name attached to it.
139 WWE 24x7 (lost professional wrestling compilation show; 2007) 20 December 2021 Probably the start of WWE trying to appeal to the Indian television market, making this an important television program.
140 Bill Longson vs Whipper Billy Watson (lost footage of professional wrestling match; 1947) 21 December 2021 A wrestling match where its historical significance to television was almost lost to time! Full credit to Crowbar Press for recovering the St. Louis sports programs, and for Jim Cornette and Brian Last for discussing and raising awareness of its significance to wrestling and television.
141 Radio WWF (lost professional wrestling radio show; 1993-1994; late 1990s-2000) 21 December 2021 A novel concept, especially when it was broadcast on Armed Forces Network!
142 The ECW Fire Incident (lost footage of post-hardcore professional wrestling match brawl; 1995) 22 December 2021 One of the stupidest moments in wrestling history. Still, no wonder ECW was popular back in the day, considering the awesome photo of Cactus Jack wielding the flaming chair!
143 Collision in Korea (found professional wrestling event in North Korea; 1995) 22 December 2021 And folks thought the WWE events in Saudi Arabia were controversial! Most have been fascinating for the North Korean folk though, especially the matches featuring the women!
144 Collision in Korea wrestler sketches (lost North Korean pencil sketch portraits of professional wrestlers; 1995) 22 December 2021 Say what you will about North Korea, but this is absolutely amazing, and I would love to see at least some of these resurface one day.
145 ECW at E3 2000 (partially found footage of professional wrestling at gaming trade event; 2000) 22 December 2021 A hidden gem, considering both the wrestling content as well as the general E3 2000 footage.
146 FMW at E3 2000 (partially found footage of professional wrestling at gaming trade event; 2000) 22 December 2021 While some highlights were on DVD, apparently they were continually interrupted by replays roughly every 20 seconds! Not sure that I would be keen on watching the DVDs, ha ha.
147 ZTA (lost build of cancelled PlayStation Portable zombie action-adventure open world game; mid-2000s) 23 December 2021 This would either be the best PSP Grand Theft Auto game, or one of those hilariously bad games.
148 England 3-0 Rest of Europe (partially found footage of international football match; 1938) 23 December 2021 Yay, England win for a change! The second international game to be televised, and I believe the first to feature a non-British Isles side.
149 Juventus 1-7 A.C. Milan (partially found footage of Serie A football match; 1950) 23 December 2021 First televised Serie A game, and the first televised football match Juventus fans wish to forget!
150 Total Wormage (lost Amiga prototype build of artillery strategy game; 1994) 24 December 2021 And there we have it folks: 150 articles! The genesis of my childhood game, which apparently was so addictive, Davidson's form teacher had to ban it in his college!
151 The Jeremy Kyle Show (lost unaired footage of British daytime talk show; 2005-2019) 27 December 2021 The dark topic of how exploitive reality television really is. 38+ suicides linked to reality television worldwide...
152 1969 Permatex 300 at Daytona (partially found footage of NASCAR Sportsman race; 1969) 28 December 2021 One of the most brutal accidents I have ever seen, poor bloke never stood a chance.
153 1972 Twin 125s (partially found footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; 1972) 29 December 2021 Another terrible crash. What I find sad is that it appears only the death footage for some of these races are the only clips that are publicly available.
154 1982 Twin 125s race 1 (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying race; existence unconfirmed; 1982) 29 December 2021 When NASCAR experts dispute over whether it aired or not, I have to add the "existence unconfirmed" category to the article. That said, I am confident most of these races were at least recorded, if not televised.
155 1985 Twin 125s (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; existence unconfirmed; 1985) 29 December 2021 A dominant Twin 125s win to go along with Bill Elliot's fantastic Daytona 500 performance.
156 1986 Twin 125s (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; existence unconfirmed; 1986) 29 December 2021 It feels weird that there is no footage of several Daytona qualifying races. If anything, these are probably more important than some of the main races, considering Daytona 500's importance.
157 Wikipedia (lost initial edit of online encyclopaedia; existence unconfirmed; 2001) 30 December 2021 Yes, one on Wikipedia! Apparently, this is the edit that started it all! Well, Jimbo Wales says it was... but some reliable sources insist otherwise! Also, I might be getting old, not really sure about these so-called "NFTs".
158 1984 Delaware 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1984) 30 December 2021 The only footage I was able to find consisted of Bobby Allison's thankfully non-fatal accident. How he managed to compete within a week for the subsequent race after being told he required four weeks of recovery is remarkable.
159 1984 Warner W. Hodgdon Carolina 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; existence unconfirmed; 1984) 30 December 2021 Possibly the first SETN NASCAR broadcast, with the race itself ending Allison's bad luck at the start of the season.
160 Barnet 3-2 Wealdstone (lost footage of Athenian League football match; 1946) 31 December 2021 The first football match to be televised following the Second World War. Rather lovely that it wasn't a big international clash, or a Football League match, but within the non-leagues, which some would consider to be the "true football".
161 Charlton Athletic 1-0 Blackburn Rovers (lost footage of FA Cup match; 1947) 31 December 2021 An experiment that led to far more than just the FA Cup Final being broadcast on a regular basis. Shame that the game was apparently rubbish, with The Valley's surface apparently suffering from mud, frost and ice!
162 1947 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1947) 31 December 2021 The icing on the cake for my time on the Wiki in 2021! It has been fabulous, and to celebrate, I thought a "Final" article would be suitable, ha ha. Charlton's only FA Cup win interestingly enough.
163 1979 Southeastern 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1979) 2 January 2022 An important race in NASCAR history, as it was The Intimidator's first win! And yet, it wasn't televised... that said, there might be a recording out there.
164 1971 Twin 125s (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; 1971) 3 January 2022 These Twin 125s are fascinating yet generally overlooked NASCAR media sadly.
165 1974 Twin 125s (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; 1974) 3 January 2022 Seems like several Twin 125s were generally unremarkable, not much to say beyond the results and lack of accessibility.
166 1975 Twin 125s (lost footage of NASCAR Daytona 500 qualifying races; 1975) 3 January 2022 At least we have a photo for this one! Two competitive races apparently, including Pearson vs Petty!
167 1961 Firecracker 250 (lost ABC footage of NASCAR Grand National race; 1961) 4 January 2022 The first ABC broadcast of a NASCAR event. Additionally, David Pearson also breaks the stock car speed record!
168 1962 Firecracker 250 (lost ABC footage of NASCAR Grand National race; 1962) 4 January 2022 Fireball winning at Firecracker makes sense!
169 Lita's training matches (partially found training videos of professional wrestler; late 1990s-2000) 5 January 2022 Learnt about this one in a now-deleted pro wrestling iceberg. Clearly, the uploader of these training videos is a hardcore fan of Lita/Amy Dumas.
170 Chowdaheads (partially found unaired professional wrestling cartoon show; 1999) 6 January 2022 WCW were really pushing into the cartoon market by this point... well, at least when Bischoff was still in charge. Created by Eli Roth, perhaps most known for Cabin Fever and Hostel.
171 Bradshaw vs Christian (lost footage of professional wrestling match; 2001) 7 January 2022 Must have been a bad match if a title change and a Sean Casey segment were not enough to save it from being cut!
172 1963 Firecracker 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1963)‎ 12 January 2022 Fireball wins at Firecracker again! This would sadly be his final Firecracker, as he died two days before the 1964 race, following his accident at the 1964 World 600.
173 1967 Firecracker 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1967) 13 January 2022 A Ford clean sweep, featuring a rather scary accident for Gary Bettenhausen, who thankfully escaped uninjured.
174 Cultaholic (found debut video of professional wrestling YouTube channel; 2017) 13 January 2022 The whole Blampied situation was a case of rather unfortunate timing. Fortunately, seems that everyone has moved on from it, to the extent this debut video (and possibly others), were made private. Fortunately, the video would be found four days after I published the article on it.
175 1971 Medal of Honor Firecracker 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1971) 15 January 2022 I like that a few Firecracker races paid tribute to those who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor.
176 1972 Firecracker 400 (lost ABC footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 15 January 2022 Based on reports, one of the most exciting NASCAR races with one of the closest finishes! Just a shame there is no footage available currently.
177 Bradford City vs Lincoln City (partially found footage of Football League Third Division match; 1985) 17 January 2022 Truly horrific, on a day meant to be a cause for celebration for Bradford City. The burning man is an awful sight, but we should also commend the many police officers and spectators who saved lives on the day.
178 Opening of the BBC Television Service (partially found coverage of inaugural day of high-definition television service; 1936) 22 January 2022 One of the most important days in television history! Partially found only because some of the content like newsreels indirectly survive. Adele Dixon's song is a timeless classic in my opinion.
179 WWE Crush Hour (lost build of cancelled Xbox port of vehicular combat game; 2002) 22 January 2022 I noted that there was discussion surrounding whether an Xbox port of this wrestling game existed. Well, I can confirm that development of an Xbox version was announced prior to E3 2002! But while existence has been proven, finding any tangible work (ports, screenshots etc) has not been achieved yet. I might have enjoyed it back in the day, but never saw it in stores over in the United Kingdom.
180 Alexandra Palace's wartime television demonstrations (lost footage of private television transmissions; 1943, 1945) 23 January 2022 Very interesting stuff here, more so the August 1943 broadcast. What was the broadcast's purpose? Was Winston Churchill and/or King George VI at the demonstration? An unsolved television mystery here, would make for a good investigation.
181 Robot Wars (found cameos of robot combat-themed BBC 2 ident; 1999-2000) 25 January 2022 Almost forgot about that time when me and another hardcore Robot Wars fan found some introductions starring this little machine!
182 Awesome Kong vs Melissa Anderson (lost footage of professional wrestling match; 2009) 25 January 2022 Have not seen many of Cheerleader Melissa's matches, but considering how popular she was in the early-to-mid-2010s, it seems like TNA really dropped the ball here. Indeed, TNA had quite the competitive advantage over WWE with its women's division back then, and Melissa seemingly would have boosted it further.
183 The Orchestra and its Instruments (lost early BBC music talk show; 1937) 26 January 2022 Probably one of the first music shows, and it seems like there was also an encore by the BBC Television Orchestra for the final episode. Seems like an ideal show for the television viewer demographic back then.
184 Masks through the Ages (lost early BBC history talk show; 1937) 26 January 2022 Back when masks were, I suppose... less polarising? Ha. But I'd imagine this would be a good dive into history!
185 Horace Lindrum vs Willie Smith (lost footage of televised snooker; 1937) 26 January 2022 During my research for Masks through the Ages, I discovered that the first snooker game aired around the same time period! So much for issue 706 of Radio Times claiming that snooker's growing popularity against billiards in the 1930s was just a fad!
186 Weaponless Self-Defence (lost early ju-jitsu television program; 1936-1937) 27 January 2022 A demonstration on how people, particularly women, can defend themselves, with demonstrations from a few professional wrestlers! Would recommend watching the attached British Pathé video by the way, as it is hilarious.
187 The World of Women (lost early BBC talk show; 1937) 27 January 2022 One of the first shows dedicated to showcasing the career and talents of women. And indeed, based on the research I conducted, the women featured were highly influential in their fields.
188 Pointless (lost unaired GSN pilots for rejected American version of British game show; 2017) 28 January 2022 I do enjoy watching Pointless and the trivia it provides. Unfortunately, GSN's version lacked meaning and served no useful purpose, ha ha.
189 Archery (lost early televised toxophily; 1937-1938) 28 January 2022 Pretty confident this is the first televised archery, considering the 1936 Summer Olympics had no archery events.
190 Craftsmen at Work (lost early BBC documentary show; 1938, 1946) 29 January 2022 Interesting one, this. One of a few shows that has a surviving photo attached to it. Also, a show brought back after the Second World War too!
191 Albert Fish's final statement (lost handwritten notes of American serial killer; 1936) 3 February 2022 Albert Fish was not exactly a lovely man, was he? Difficult article to write, not only due to the graphic content, but also because there's actually little I can write about the notes themselves. I mean, aside from Dempsey's comment, not much else is known about the statement.
192 England 1-1 Scotland (partially found footage of international football match; 1947) 4 February 2022 First televised international match following the Second World War, and England... almost won, were it not for a rogue whistle!
193 England 3-0 France (partially found footage of international football match; 1947) 5 February 2022 England dominated this one from start to finish! Not sure whether this was the first televised match featuring Les Bleus as there is very little information about early televised matches featuring the team.
194 Scottish Universities 1-1 English Universities (lost footage of international football match; 1952) 5 February 2022 An amateur football match with television significance, as it was the first to be televised from Scotland!
195 Serbia vs Albania (partially found footage of abandoned UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match; 2014) 6 February 2022 The fact UEFA thought it would be OK to have both teams in the same group is beyond me. Seemingly more available footage of the brawl than the match itself!
196 Arsenal 7-1 Hibernian (lost footage of charity football match; 1952) 9 February 2022 First game with floodlights, and the first professional Scottish team to appear on Scottish television... not a great way for Hibernian to kick things off, ha ha.
197 Falkirk 3-2 Newcastle United (lost footage of football match; 1953) 10 February 2022 The first televised professional football match in Scotland. Newcastle's luck still hasn't changed since then, ha.
198 Woods and Jack (lost early televised lawn bowls; 1937; 1946) 12 February 2022 I appreciate the game of lawn bowls, involving some insane accuracy to park the woods right next to the jack. These are likely the earliest televised instances of the game, thanks to Alexandra Palace and its bowling club.
199 1955 Scottish Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1955) 12 February 2022 First televised Scottish Cup Final, where nowadays Clyde beating Celtic would be considered a major upset!
200 Worms (lost build of cancelled Sega 32X port of artillery turn-based strategy game; existence unconfirmed; 1995)‎ 14 February 2022 And there we have it folks: 200 articles! This one features a port even more mysterious than the cancelled Virtual Boy one. Was it cancelled just as swiftly? Is there a build of it? Who knows?!
201 Pat Tanaka vs Rocco Rock (lost footage of "Body Count" professional wrestling match; 1993)‎ 16 February 2022 Following the 200 article iceberg, it is time to write some more! Here is a professional wrestling match with a post-match botch somehow worse than the aftermath of Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley! Yes, really!
202 Goldberg's pre-television debut matches (lost footage of professional wrestling dark matches; 1997) 17 February 2022 Goldberg and WCW were fortunate the internet wasn't that big back in the 1990s! Otherwise, his mystique would be over before it even began! There might be a chance these matches were taped, considering the pre-show Nitro and Thunder feed from 1998 and 1999 that has been uploaded to YouTube before.
203 Kurt Angle vs Owen Hart (lost footage of professional wrestling match; 1999) 22 February 2022 Here's a more positive LMW article on Owen Hart! He believed Kurt Angle was a future world champion based on this match, and boy, was he right!
204 Johnny Gargano vs Velveteen Dream (lost footage of alternate finish to professional wrestling match; 2019) 22 February 2022 Jim Cornette would flip if he knew about this, ha ha. Also included some footage from a house show event, which obviously does not contain footage of the alternate ending.
205 The Giant's moonsault (lost footage of professional wrestling move; existence unconfirmed; 1990s) 22 February 2022 Perhaps highly unlikely we will ever see footage of this, but well, with at least one notable wrestling reporter claiming they saw a video of the move, it warrants an article. It is most certainly a holy grail in terms of a wrestling move being performed, because my word would that be amazing!
206 WWE Wrestlemania 36 (lost footage of alternate finishes to professional wrestling matches; 2020) 23 February 2022 Seeing as I have been writing about wrestling media recently, I think it will be fine to add this one now, even if it is slightly under the 2-year rule. Unlikely we shall ever see these alternate endings be released any time soon. Plus, first lost media I have written that arose in 2020, and be influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic!
207 Low Ki & Mercury vs Ric Blade & TCK (partially lost footage of hardcore wrestling tag team match; 2000) 23 February 2022 Normally, I wouldn't discuss CZW or other extremely hardcore wrestling on this Wiki, because I am just not interested in it... but here, I will provide an exception! Never change, Low Ki, never change!
208 AJ Styles vs Kenny Omega (lost footage of professional wrestling match; 2006) 24 February 2022 Based on accounts, footage likely exists. A dream match in wrestling before anyone realised it I guess.
209 Alberto Del Rio vs CM Punk vs Dolph Ziggler vs Jack Swagger vs John Cena (partially found master tape footage of untelevised Hell in a Cell match; 2011) 26 February 2022 We have low-quality amateur footage and only a segment of master tape footage... WWE are teasing us here! Maybe one day they will release the high-quality master tape in-full as part of its Hidden Gems collection.
210 Mark Jindrak in Evolution (partially found unaired vignettes of professional wrestling stable; 2003) 26 February 2022 Regardless of whether you like Batista in wrestling, or just his films, it was critical that Jindrak was dropped in the end. Imagine how things would change if Jindrak got the enforcer role... who would play as Drax?
211 Paul Warwick (lost footage of fatal British F3000 crash; 1991) 28 February 2022 The tragic accident of a driver who could have been a future Formula One champion.
212 1973 Medal of Honor Firecracker 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1973) 2 March 2022 Time to resume the Firecracker articles, and the last of the Medal of Honor ones. David Pearson perhaps should have completed the whole season, considering how good he was during his limited schedule that year!
213 1975 Firecracker 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1975) 3 March 2022 The King finally wins at Firecracker! Took him long enough, considering he won five Daytona 500s beforehand!
214 1976 Firecracker 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 3 March 2022 And we are done with the Firecracker series, well, at least from the 1960s to the 1970s! Occurred on the 200th anniversary of the United States' founding.
215 1964 Atlanta 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1964) 5 March 2022 Moving on now with the Atlanta 500 races, and a spectacular crash involving Paul Goldsmith! He was fortunate to escape injury. No CBS recording has been found, but apparently some clips were in a film called Speed Lovers.
216 1971 Atlanta 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1971) 5 March 2022 A tense duel between A.J. Foyt and Richard Petty. Beforehand, the race was nearly cancelled due to the circuit's bankruptcy, and Foyt apologised for comments he never actually made!
217 1972 Atlanta 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 6 March 2022 Very exciting race based on what The New York Times has to say. Not much media of it though, sadly.
218 1973 Atlanta 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1973) 6 March 2022 Pearson vs Yarborough, featuring a scary crash involving Petty, and drama over the starting order being decided by a draw!
219 1975 Dixie 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1975) 6 March 2022 Quite an easy article to write, when considering nobody really elaborates on what happened during this race, ha. Nevertheless, Buddy Baker survived challenges by rain and darkness to claim victory!
220 1976 Atlanta 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 7 March 2022 A highly competitive race decided by engine failures and different pit stop tactics based around how many tyres should be changed!
221 1979 Atlanta 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1979) 7 March 2022 Finishing up the Atlanta 500 series on a grim note, as this race featured the death of crewman Dennis Wade.
222 1979 Dixie 500 (lost ABC footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; existence unconfirmed; 1979) 8 March 2022 And we are done with the Atlanta/Dixie races! This race was extremely close according to reports. ABC rumoured to have televised highlights, but this has not been fully confirmed. Credit to RacersReunion for providing significant detail on this race and qualifying.
223 1964 National 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1964) 11 March 2022 The first of perhaps the biggest part of this project, documenting the Charlotte races, e.g. the National 400/500 and World 600. This race occurred months following Fireball Roberts' death at the 1964 World 600 and Jim Pardue's death at a testing event, but the racers soldiered on. Petty almost won, but suffered a tyre failure laps before the end, and almost suffering the same fate as Pardue had the guardrail not been strengthened beforehand.
224 1965 National 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1965) 11 March 2022 Unfortunately, another fatal accident at Charlotte. This time, a first-lap pile-up that claimed the life of Harold Kite. Footage of the accident is publicly available, though is not included on this article obviously.
225 1966 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1966) 12 March 2022 Unfortunately, not much media on this one. First to be expanded to 500 miles, LeeRoy Yarbrough absolutely dominated the race!
226 1970 World 600 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1970) 16 March 2022 Back to the 1970s, and the second instance I have documented the longest race in NASCAR. Here, Donnie Allison won with LeeRoy Yarbrough as a relief driver, as unfortunately Allison burnt his feet because of a floorboard insulation failure!
227 1970 National 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1970) 16 March 2022 LeeRoy Yarbrough's final win in the Grand National Series, in a race featuring several notable crashes.
228 1971 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1971) 17 March 2022 A race where rain caused the loss of 143 miles. An exciting event overall though, with Bobby Allison winning a four horse race!
229 1972 National 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 17 March 2022 Bobby Allison wins his second consecutive National 500, fending off Buddy Baker in the final ten laps! Amazingly footage was recovered from British Pathé, as they had colour footage of a Reuters newsreel on its website.
230 1974 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1974) 18 March 2022 Article 230! David Pearson wins in a race that almost claimed the life of country and western singer Marty Robbins. Very lucky was Robbins, whose actions also saved the life of Richard Childress.
231 1975 World 600 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1975) 28 March 2022 Here's a famous one, as the King finally wins at Charlotte! Also, the race marked the Cup Series debut of the Intimidator!
232 1975 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1975) 28 March 2022 A three-way duel for the win, with The King achieving back-to-back victories at Charlotte! Also included a rather humorous story of three drivers being upset at very different decisions made by a NASCAR official.
233 1976 World 600 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 28 March 2022 Another great duel between the Silver Fox and the King. Also, the race marked the debut of Janet Guthrie, who became the first woman to compete at a major NASCAR superspeedway event!
234 1976 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 28 March 2022 An event in which Donnie Allison ends five years of hurt, with a confident victory!
235 1978 NAPA National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1978) 28 March 2022 And we are done with the World/National races! Not much to say about this one, Bobby Allison dominated near the end with a margin of victory 30.2 seconds. Unless I am very much mistaken, this may also be the only instance of a lost 1978 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race.
236 1970 Wilkes 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1970) 29 March 2022 While I plan to get started on the Rebel/Southern series, here's a one-off concerning the only known missing North Wilkesboro Speedway broadcast, at least from 1960-1979. A Bobby Isaac-Richard Petty classic!
237 1965 Rebel 300 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1965) 31 March 2022 Time to crack down on the Rebel articles. By "Rebel", we are talking about a celebration of the Confederacy... and a lot of Confederate flags! But anyhow, the racing's more important, with Junior Johnson having dominated this one, but almost didn't win because of a protest again a pit stop of his following the race.
238 1966 Southern 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1966) 31 March 2022 Dieringer vs Petty for this one, decided by a guardrail clash. Speaking of guardrails, a scary accident involving Earl Balmer, which nearly took out several people from the media in the process! Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt, and the "Balmer's Box" was created for the track in response to the outcry.
239 1967 Rebel 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1967) 31 March 2022 A historic race this one, as The King breaks the highest number of NASCAR Grand National Series victories with a win here! He would go onto to win another 145...
240 1971 Rebel 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1971) 31 March 2022 Article 240! A race where Donnie Allison was cruelly denied a possible victory because of engine failure. Nevertheless, it appeared Buddy Baker was very much closing in during the late stages, and the two easily dominated the rest of the field.
241 1972 Rebel 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 2 April 2022 Pearson wins after two seasons of hurt, generally controlling this one too. Also, what is with that race program, ha ha.
242 1976 Rebel 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 2 April 2022 And that is it regarding the Darlington races! David Pearson wins despite a dominant performance from Buddy Baker, with the race featuring nasty crashes for James Hylton and Jerry Sisco.
243 1976 Winston 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 3 April 2022 Beginning with the Talladega races, Baker makes history with the fastest NASCAR 500 mile victory at the time.
244 1976 Talladega 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 3 April 2022 That should be it for the Alabama races. Marcis breaks the pole sitter's curse at the Alabama International Motor Speedway.
245 1974 Mason-Dixon 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1974) 3 April 2022 Agony for The King, as his Dodge gives up the ghost with fewer than four laps remaining! But as he and Yarborough both know, to win the race, first you have to finish! The only seemingly missing Dover broadcast from the 1960s-1970s.
246 1975 Champion Spark Plug 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1975) 5 April 2022 A classic Petty-Pearson duel, decided by only half a car length! Also unique in that the full MRN radio broadcast is publicly viewable.
247 1976 Champion Spark Plug 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 5 April 2022 Pearson makes a comeback to achieve the Michigan double. Annoyingly, there were two videos back in 2018 that contained highlights, but both have since been made inaccessible.
248 1979 Gabriel 400 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1979) 6 April 2022 A race featuring a scary accident involving Steve Pfeiffer and a few spectators. Fortunately no one was killed, but the images and video show how serious it could have been. Meanwhile, Baker won an otherwise very competitive race, beating out Donnie Allison and Cale Yarborough.
249 1976 Riverside 400 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1976) 7 April 2022 Pearson wins the first NASCAR race to utilise the metric system. The drivers were quite happy with that, considering it made the race considerably shorter!
250 1971 Myers Brothers 250 (lost footage and official documents of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1971) 9 April 2022 This is my 250th article! And to celebrate, here's perhaps one of the most incredible stories in NASCAR history! It's got it all... conflict surrounding letting "pony" cars enter; a punch-up in the pits; a furious Richard Petty; and amazingly, it is a race that doesn't even have an official winner! Does Allison deserve his "85th victory" or not? You decide!
251 1972 Carolina 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 9 April 2022 Bobby Isaac claims his 37th and final Winston Cup Series win. Bobby Allison had quite the race! He won the pole position, only to be forced to the back because of an illegal tyre change, only to recover all the way back to a dominant first in the race, before all that hard work was ruined by an engine failure!
252 1960 Daytona 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1960) 11 April 2022 Time to cover the Daytona 500 events. Quite a bit of footage is already available, but notably the 1962 Southern 500 is believed to be the oldest race with a surviving TV broadcast. The 1960 500 may have had up to an hour of television coverage, but it has not seemingly resurfaced. Anyhow, Junior Johnson wins, discovering the drafting principle during the event.
253 1962 Daytona 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1962) 12 April 2022 The second Daytona 500 to be televised, Fireball Roberts achieved victory at a world record average speed for a 500-mile course... He almost didn't because of a Lee Petty protest!
254 1965 Daytona 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1965) 14 April 2022 Lorenzen wins a race that was cut short by rain. 45 minutes were televised by ABC back in the day.
255 1972 Daytona 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1972) 14 April 2022 Foyt achieves victory in dominant fashion once The King was out of the way! 45 minutes of highlights according to NASCAR on TV.
256 1970 Alabama 500 (found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1970) 15 April 2022 Thought I would detail NASCAR's recovery of a race deemed important due to ABC televising part of it live. The broadcast wasn't the best to be quite honest, but at least it is available! Anyhow, that's the original lost NASCAR TV broadcasts list from Racing-Reference covered!
257 1981 Coca-Cola 500 (partially found footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1981) 16 April 2022 Moving on now to the 1980s, and apparently this is the only race from 1981 that is not publicly available. Yarborough beats Gant by some margin to win.
258 1981 CRC Chemicals 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1981) 16 April 2022 Bonnett achieves a dominant victory, although based on Racing-Reference's lap leader breakdown, it seemed Harry Gant was in for a shout had his car's engine not failed. ESPN allegedly televised the race, which although not fully confirmed, is likely based on the fact a news clip of the race credited to ESPN was once on YouTube.
259 1982 CRC Chemicals 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1982) 17 April 2022 At first I was sceptical on whether this race was televised, as not even NASCAR on TV documented it. However, the photo of Waltrip being interviewed post-race, with a TV camera present, pretty much confirms it was televised. Waltrip narrowly edged out Kyle Petty to win.
260 1982 Winston Western 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; existence unconfirmed; 1982) 17 April 2022 Tim Richmond wins in dominant fashion, while Waltrip secures his second title. Rumoured to be broadcast on WTBS but is unconfirmed. That said, I am confident footage exists as it is a title decider and the final 1982 race after all.
261 1983 Mason-Dixon 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1983) 17 April 2022 Another Allison-Waltrip duel, with Allison winning his sixth race at Dover. Mizlou televised this one.
262 1983 Southern 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; existence unconfirmed; 1983) 17 April 2022 Allison climbs the field to claim victory. I am actually very confident this race was televised based on one image, but NASCAR on TV says no evidence an ABC broadcast currently exists.
263 1989 Busch Clash (lost footage of pre-season NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1989) 17 April 2022 Only Busch Clash seemingly missing. Expect this one to resurface soon though, as this race was added to YouTube not once but twice before!
264 1988 Miller High Life 500 (partially lost footage of NASCAR Winston Cup Series race; 1988) 18 April 2022 The race that sadly ended Bobby Allison's career. As some may note, a 90-minute broadcast is already publicly available. However, as nascarman History notes in his lost NASCAR TV broadcasts video, there is a two-and-a-half hour broadcast from (oddly) the Financial News Network that has yet to be found.
265 1963 Richmond 250 (partially found footage of NASCAR Grand National Series qualifying session and race; 1963) 18 April 2022 Credit to nascarman History for this one, as he documented this very obscure broadcast in his Top 10 LOST NASCAR TV Broadcasts. WRVA-TV televised only qualifying, which is odd. Some race footage is available thanks to a surviving 8mm film however, which is very cool to see.
266 1964 Richmond 250 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series qualifying session; 1964) 18 April 2022 Again, credit to nascarman History for this obscure qualifying session broadcast. Ned Jarrett was doubly unlucky here, first with the rain postponing the race while leading, and then his engine blowing on the restart!
267 1972 Bowman-Gray 100 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand American Series race; 1972) 19 April 2022 Time to cover the remainder of races listed on nascarman History's Top 10 LOST NASCAR TV Broadcasts. Credit to him and RacersReunion for providing vital information about the race and ABC coverage.
268 1982 Goody's Sportsman 300 (partially found footage of NASCAR Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series race; 1982) 19 April 2022 The first ever race to commence in what is now known as the Xfinity Series. But despite being aired by USA Network, it might not actually be the first that was televised! Anyhow, Earnhardt edges out Jody Ridley as a confidence booster following his unfortunate 1981 Winston Cup Series campaign.
269 1982 Eastern 150 (lost footage of NASCAR Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series race; 1982) 19 April 2022 By far, the most obscure race I have documented. Normally, I wouldn't document these races, but this one according to NASCAR on TV was the first modern Sportsman (now Xfinity) race to be televised! Interesting stuff.
270 1983 Goody's Sportsman 300 (partially found footage of NASCAR Budweiser Late Model Sportsman Series race; 1983) 20 April 2022 Waltrip wins after harnessing the presence of Earnhardt's Pontiac to win. Also, a nasty accident for Rodney Howard, he was fortunate to escape suffering any broken bones.
271 1984 Goody's Sportsman 300 (lost footage of NASCAR Busch Grand National Series race; 1984) 20 April 2022 Waltrip wins again, this time leading only the final three laps of the race!
272 1979 Sportsman 300 (partially found footage of NASCAR Late Model Sportsman Series race; 1979) 21 April 2022 A race infamous for that horrific crash that claimed the life of Don Williams a decade later. No photos included, because all of the ones I found probably would not be allowed on the Wiki.
273 1979 Daytona ARCA 200 (lost footage of ARCA Racing Series race; 1979) 21 April 2022 An ARCA race this time, which technically counts as part of NASCAR as ARCA was purchased by the latter in 2018. Anyhow, Kyle Petty's first stock car race ends with him winning it! Credit to nascarman History for detailing the CBS broadcast, that's his Lost NASCAR TV Broadcasts YouTube video covered now!
274 1990 Daytona ARCA 200 (partially found footage of ARCA Racing Series race; 1990) 21 April 2022 Two infamous accidents. One claimed the life of Slick Johnson, the other severely injuring EMT Mike Staley. ESPN planned to air the race, but decided against it following the crashes.
275 1995 Winston 100/1995 Duron Paints And Wallcoverings 100 (partially found footage of NASCAR Sportsman Division Series doubleheader; 1995) 22 April 2022 This is an infamous one. Russell Phillips' accident may well be the worst in NASCAR's history. Likely out of respect for him and his family, the Winston 100 and subsequent race were both left untelevised.
276 2002 K&N Filters 150 (lost footage of NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Tour race; 2002) 22 April 2022 A race infamous for the fatal accident of John Baker, the fourth death at Irwindale before a reconfiguration made the speedway much safer.
277 1992 Atlanta 300 (lost footage of NASCAR Busch Grand National Series race; 1992) 24 April 2022 More NASCAR history, as this was Jeff Gordon's first ever win in a NASCAR-sanctioned event! It was critical he won this one, as this started his relationship with Hendrick Motorsports, guiding him to numerous wins and titles. ABC recorded the race, but never aired it.
278 Jeff Gordon's 2008 UAW-Dodge 400 crash (lost on-board footage of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race crash; 2008) 24 April 2022 Speaking of Jeff Gordon, he suffered a hard hit that he was lucky not to be seriously injured. Footage of the crash exists, but not from on-board, because Gordon's team deemed it too disturbing to air.
279 Jason Leffler (lost footage of fatal 410 Sprint Car accident; 2013) 25 April 2022 Based on the animated reconstruction, it was a horrendous accident. Footage has been claimed to exist, including by someone who states had two videos of the incident.
280 NASCAR (partially found uncut footage of stock car races; 1960-present) 26 April 2022 Time to finish off the NASCAR project, at least for the time being. Perhaps the most coveted NASCAR media, since technically most NASCAR races do have lost footage.
281 Greyhound Racing Ireland (lost withheld footage of greyhound falls during races; 2018-present) 28 April 2022 Now, I do firmly believe this article fits within the Lost Media Wiki remit. Nevertheless, I get why some may find this a controversial topic. But there is a reason I wrote this, please see the comments for more detail.
282 FIFA Soccer 2002 (lost build of cancelled Game Boy Advance port of football game; existence unconfirmed; 2001-2002) 28 April 2022 A much less controversial article. A few mysterious Amazon and IGN listings that suggests a port may have been considered at one point, but nothing more substantial as of yet. Happy to title this one FIFA Soccer 2002 as that is what the supposed GBA port is titled as.
283 Robot Wars (partially found footage of robot combat show qualifying auditions and battles; 1998-2003) 28 April 2022 Back to something I have a serious passion for. The BBC Wales video indicates some, if not all, qualifiers were recorded in some fashion. Very exciting stuff!
284 Peter Dumbreck's 1999 24 Hours Of Le Mans crash (lost on-board footage of LMGTP accident; 1999) 28 April 2022 One of the most famous crashes in motorsport history. Multiple replays but ultimately no on-board footage was ever released. Also added a photo of Mark Webber's crash during the warm-up.
285 Sébastien Enjolras (lost footage of fatal 24 Hours of Le Mans pre-qualifying accident; 1997) 29 April 2022 Based on accounts, one of the most brutal accidents in motorsport. Only aftermath footage is currently publicly available.
286 England 2-0 Italy (partially found footage of international football match; 1949) 29 April 2022 If only that was the final score of the Euro 2020 Final, oh well. This is quite a special one, as the BBC actually holds some of its live coverage of the match in its archives. The earliest surviving football telerecording in fact.
287 1948 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1948) 30 April 2022 Now that we know the 1949 England-Italy match was the first to be somewhat recorded, time to document a few more FA Cup Finals. Manchester United ended its 39 year FA Cup drought here, beating Blackpool in the process.
288 1949 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1949) 30 April 2022 Wolves secures its third FA Cup, in the sixth televised Final.
289 Walthamstow Avenue 0-2 Queen's Park (lost footage of friendly football match; 1951) 30 April 2022 I love documenting pieces of football history like this. Queen's Park became the first ever Scottish club to be televised. It would have to wait another 61 years to be televised live again!
290 England 6-0 Switzerland (partially found footage of international football match; 1948) 30 April 2022 England's biggest televised win at that point, in a match featuring future 1966 World Cup winning manager Alf Ramsey!
291 England 1-3 Scotland (partially found footage of international football match; 1949) 1 May 2022 That should be all the England match broadcasts from 1938-1949 covered! Annoyingly, Scotland win again, earning the 1948/49 Home Championship and delivering England's first home loss since the Second World War.
292 Kinniku Banzuke (lost unaired "Power Island" episode of sports variety show; 2002) 1 May 2022 Haven't covered much media from Japan before, thought I would rectify that! That said, I think accidents like this were sadly inevitable in shows like this, Takeshi's Castle, etc.
293 Supermarket Sweep (lost pilots of ABC game show; 1965) 2 May 2022 These pilots were critical for the 1990s American show, its revival, and one of my favourite shows to watch growing up, Dale's Supermarket Sweep.
294 Supermarket Sweep (partially found ABC game show; 1965-1967) 2 May 2022 Turns out Supermarket Sweep was influencing the UK well before Dale's Supermarket Sweep. In 1966, a couple and their son did a shopping spree for a charity event! Also, I somehow doubt one would get away with such gendered roles in today's shows, ha ha.
295 Takeshi's Castle (lost pilot of Japanese game show; 1986) 2 May 2022 Surprised I am seemingly the first Keshi Head on this Wiki, since I would have imagined an article on the pilot would have been written years ago. Alas, no winners this time, on Takeshi's Castle! Credit to the Keshi Heads forum for providing so much detail on the pilot too!
296 No Time to Die (lost John Hogie screenplay of James Bond film; 2018) 3 May 2022 I loved the Trainspotting films, so who knows, maybe Danny Boyle and John Hogie would have established an amazing Bond film. That said, I did enjoy the final product as a casual fan of the Bond series.
297 Clothes-Line (lost early BBC fashion talk show; 1937-1938) 3 May 2022 The first fashion show on television! Also featured perhaps the first heavily pregnant woman on television, and a rather unfortunate incident with a 1937 backless evening dress. Then again, keep in mind how conservative people were back then when it came to clothes!
298 The Man with the Flower in His Mouth (lost early BBC television drama; 1930) 3 May 2022 Not actually the first television drama, but the first in Britain! Also, I must say how impressive that 1967 recreation is!
299 1968 Tony Bettenhausen 100 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1968) 3 May 2022 The first IndyCar race to receive live flag-to-flag coverage, as well as be aired in colour!
300 Worms on Facebook (lost browser artillery turn-based strategy game; 2013) 4 May 2022 And there we have it folks: 300 articles! Cannot believe how much has been written since I started getting really engaged in documenting lost media! In traditional fashion, the 300th article focuses on Worms, this time a released Facebook game that sadly wasn't very successful. Ambitious project nevertheless.
301 1969 Rex Mays Classic (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1969) 12 May 2022 So, this was one of twelve IndyCar races to be televised by TVS Television Network, with none currently being publicly available. It featured a major opening lap accident that forced Art Pollard to swap cars, ultimately winning the race!
302 1970 Rex Mays Classic (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 13 May 2022 Another TVS broadcast, featuring Joe Leonard climbing from ninth to win in the final nine laps.
303 1971 Rex Mays Classic (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 14 May 2022 Al Unser edges out his teammate Joe Leonard to claim victory, setting a track record in the process! Some footage is available, including from a Car & Track TV episode.
304 1972 Rex Mays Classic (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 14 May 2022 Bobby Unser dominates the race, featuring a somewhat nasty accident for Johnny Rutherford. Some home movie footage is publicly available.
305 1972 Tony Bettenhausen 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 14 May 2022 The final TVS Television Network broadcast of an IndyCar race, Joe Leonard winning in dominant fashion after Mario Andretti's car caught fire during a pitstop!
306 1969 Langhorne 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1969) 15 May 2022 Bobby Unser vs Andretti, with the former coming out on top. Langhorne Speedway was known for being a fast but an especially dangerous track.
307 1970 Langhorne 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 15 May 2022 Battle of the Unsers, as Bobby edges out his younger brother Al! Also, the final IndyCar race at Langhorne, with the track's dangerous reputation being clear when Sam Sessions suffered a fiery crash.
308 1970 Rocky Mountain 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 15 May 2022 Andretti dominates the majority of the race, with extreme heat being his main challenger! Some silent footage is publicly available.
309 1971 Michigan 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 15 May 2022 Mark Donohue achieves a Michigan double, having won a Trans-American race the day prior!
310 1972 Michigan 200 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 15 May 2022 One of the most disturbing non-fatal accidents in motorsport history. At least Merle Bettenhausen got to compete in a few races afterwards, including winning a 1973 USAC National Midget Series event.
311 1970 Trenton 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 16 May 2022 Lloyd Ruby wins his first USAC event since 1968, beating Mario Andretti and his new car that was a "whole new concept" at the time.
312 Doctor Who (lost build of cancelled video game based on British science-fiction television show; 2005) 24 May 2022 I haven't written about a piece of Doctor Who lost media for a while, this one detailing a little-known game based on the 2005 revival.
313 Doctor Who (lost build of cancelled Sega Mega Drive game based on British science-fiction television series; 1994) 25 May 2022 It seems that cancelled Doctor Who games are obscure, very little information surrounding this one aside from the fact Sega itself was developing it.
314 Pedro Ruiz III (partially lost footage of accidental fatal shooting during stunt recording; 2017) 25 May 2022 I will be honest, I don't know much about Mr. Ruiz, but it is extremely upsetting to learn he felt he needed to make the video to gain fame, leaving behind a loving partner and two children when it went horribly wrong. So sad, performing deadly stunts like this simply are not worth the YouTube views one would receive.
315 Mona Lisa (found Leonardo da Vinci portrait painting; 1503-1506) 26 May 2022 Amazingly, not a joke article. In fact, this incident means the Mona Lisa may well be the most famous case of lost media, ever. Lost for over two years (thus it meets our criteria!!), it almost ended up being a mainstay in Italy!
316 WCW SuperBrawl Wrestling (lost build of cancelled Sega Genesis port of professional wrestling game; 1994) 26 May 2022 Just about have enough sources to confidently state a Genesis port was being developed. Seemed to be cancelled very late on when considering Game Players claimed it would be released in the same month as that issue's publication.
317 1967 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1967) 26 May 2022 Credit to NASCAR on TV listings for this one. Buddy Baker won his first Grand National Series event here.
318 1968 National 500 (lost footage of NASCAR Grand National Series race; 1968) 26 May 2022 Again, credit to NASCAR on TV for confirming a TV broadcast of this race. Charlie Glotzbach defeats David Pearson to win a rather competitive event!
319 1962 Trenton 100 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1962) 26 May 2022 Back to IndyCar races, and this one is special, as it was the first USAC-sanctioned event to be televised! A.J. Foyt dominated proceedings, breaking the track record in the process.
320 1962 Trenton 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1962) 26 May 2022 Don Branson achieves victory in a race deemed "spectacular" by The New York Times.
321 1963 Trenton 100 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1963) 26 May 2022 Foyt wins again, while also breaking various track records in the process! The race also marked the IndyCar debut of the Lotus-Climax, one of the greatest cars in Formula One history, having guided Jim Clark to the 1963 and 1965 titles.
322 1963 Trenton 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1963) 26 May 2022 The Lotus invasion! Jim Clark and Dan Gurney were seemingly set to take victory, but sadly, they suffered from the Lotus gremlins. Foyt claimed his third Trenton victory of the year, and his third USAC title too.
323 1964 Trenton 100 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1964) 26 May 2022 Foyt wins his fourth consecutive Trenton race in dominant fashion. Also marked the USAC debut of one Mario Andretti.
324 1964 Golden State 100 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1964) 27 May 2022 A.J. Foyt was simply untouchable during the 1964 USAC Season. This was his tenth victory of that year, and another dominant one at that.
325 1965 Golden State 100 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1965) 27 May 2022 A three-way duel here, with Don Branson defeating Foyt and Andretti to claim his third victory of the season.
326 1965 Jimmy Bryan Memorial (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1965) 27 May 2022 The first USAC race to be televised by CBS according to IndyCar on TV. Don Branson dominated this one, having lapped the field by the end.
327 1966 Jimmy Bryan Memorial (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1966) 27 May 2022 Jim McElreath controlled proceedings after Mario Andretti spun-off. Thought there was fan footage of the event, but the two clips I found are from the 1966 Bobby Ball Memorial.
328 1966 Trenton 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1966) 28 May 2022 Unlike most of the earlier Trenton races, there is some available ABC footage! Roger Ward won a rain-shortened event, in what would turn out to be his final victory.
329 1967 Trenton 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1967) 28 May 2022 Super Mario Andretti destroyed the competition here, leading from start to finish and setting two track records in the process.
330 1968 Trenton 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1968) 28 May 2022 Bobby Unser dominated this one, although Andretti did achieve a decent comeback to finish second.
331 1969 Trenton 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1969) 28 May 2022 Andretti had to perform quite the comeback to win this one, having suffered a puncture early on. Also, this race was postponed twice, and the ABC broadcast demands forced a further delay on the day the race finally commenced!
332 1972 Indianapolis 500 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 29 May 2022 Two parts of the Triple Crown, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500, occurred on this day! To celebrate, here's probably one of the more famous cases of lost motorsport broadcasts. Only 20 minutes of the ABC telecast is known to exist, but IndyCar came very close to finding a complete version in 2016.
333 1976 Indianapolis 500 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 29 May 2022 The other missing Indianapolis 500 television broadcast, this race was the shortest in the event's history because of rain.
334 1970 Jimmy Bryan 150 (partially lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 1 June 2022 An Unser 1-2, with Al beating his brother Bobby by some margin. Also, a rare partially lost article in this series. The YouTube video containing much of the ABC broadcast incorrectly listed it as the 1970 Bobby Ball 150. While much of the broadcast was uploaded, it cuts out with fewer than 11 laps remaining.
335 1970 Bobby Ball 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1970) 3 June 2022 Swede Savage secures his only USAC win. As mentioned previously, a broadcast of the race was said to have been uploaded to YouTube, but it was of the other Phoenix race, the 1970 Jimmy Bryan 150.
336 1971 Jimmy Bryan 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 3 June 2022 The Unsers achieve a second consecutive 1-2 at the Jimmy Bryan 150! Al again pips Bobby to win, although the latter would break the qualifying speed record for Phoenix.
337 1971 Bobby Ball 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 3 June 2022 A.J. Foyt wins his first USAC Championship victory in two years! He managed to secure second position in the Championship with this win too.
338 1971 Trentonian 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 4 June 2022 Mike Mosley wins his first USAC Championship race in dominant fashion! Very nearly bottled it 17 laps from the end with that spin/crash!
339 1971 Marlboro 300 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 4 June 2022 Bobby Unser led 190 of the 200 laps, breaking the average speed record of the 300-mile race in the process! Joe Leonard also secured the 1971 title at this event.
340 1971 Schaefer 500 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1971) 4 June 2022 The first IndyCar race at Pocono! Mark Donohue claimed his first win here, which was also the first for car owner Roger Penske. Credit to nascarman History for detailing the Century TeleSports Network broadcast on his Top 10 Lost IndyCar Broadcasts.
341 1972 Phoenix 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 4 June 2022 Bobby Unser generally controlled this one, although the final caution certainly went on for too long. Alas, that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes! A British Pathé newsreel exists of this race, interestingly.
342 1972 Best Western Motels 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 5 June 2022 Bobby Unser achieves a Phoenix double. Not much information regarding this race, unfortunately.
343 1972 Trentonian 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 5 June 2022 Gary Bettenhausen dominated this race, with The New York Times criticising it for being an "inept affair" because of the many mechanical failures of the new 1972 cars.
344 1972 Trenton Times 300 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1972) 5 June 2022 Bobby Unser wins despite losing a tyre early on! Joe Leonard also secured his second consecutive title at the event.
345 1973 Schaefer 500 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1973) 5 June 2022 The third Pocono race, and thankfully we have a ton of sources documenting this one! In a race of attrition, A.J. Foyt claimed victory after Roger McCluskey ran out of fuel on the final lap!
346 1973 Texas 200 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1973) 5 June 2022 A controversial race here, as Al Unser was deemed unsporting for his tactics at the end of the final caution period. Additionally, Mario Andretti is said to have set a world closed course speed record of 214.158 mph, which lasted for 12 years. Interesting stuff!
347 1974 Phoenix 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1974) 9 June 2022 Quite an interesting one here, as Mike Mosley originally failed to qualify for the event, but won it after he was allowed to compete! Maybe the win inspired the Denmark team at Euro 1992! OK, probably not.
348 1974 Trentonian 200 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1974) 10 June 2022 Bobby Unser wins an event notable for its high attrition rate. Just four drivers finished the race!
349 1974 Schaefer 500 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1974) 10 June 2022 Johnny Rutherford became the first USAC driver to win two 500-mile events in one year, having also won the 1974 Indianapolis 500!
350 1978 Daily Express Indy Silverstone (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1978) 11 June 2022 This is my 350th article! To celebrate, I thought I would skip ahead to when USAC hosted races in my native England for the first time! Sadly, typical English weather ruined what could have been a compelling event, ultimately won by A.J. Foyt. Also, I love the program used to promote this race.
351 1974 California 500 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1974) 15 June 2022 One of the closest finishes in USAC history, as Bobby beats Al Unser to the line by 58‐hundredths of a second. Sadly, Joe Leonard suffered career-ending injuries at the event.
352 1975 Bricklin 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1975) 15 June 2022 Johnny Rutherford dominated proceedings here, in a race perhaps more notable for an apparently rubbish ABC broadcast!
353 1975 Trentonian 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1975) 16 June 2022 A.J. Foyt wins his record 50th Championship victory in dominating fashion!
354 1975 Michigan 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1975) 16 June 2022 Tom Sneva achieves a comeback after a fiery crash at that year's Indianapolis 500 to claim his first USAC Championship victory!
355 1976 Michigan 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 16 June 2022 A.J. Foyt vs Gordon Johncock for this one, the former winning the duel in the end.
356 1976 Jimmy Bryan 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 16 June 2022 Bobby Unser, after having broken his leg at the 1975 Michigan 150, made his return in triumphant fashion! Also, the race is notable for the appearance of Arlene Hiss, who became the first woman to qualify for an IndyCar event!
357 1976 Bobby Ball 150 (partially found footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 17 June 2022 Al Unser wins in fine style, but Gordon Johncock's second place was enough to secure him the title at Johnny Rutherford's expense!
358 1976 Trentonian 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 19 June 2022 Johnny Rutherford wins after Gordon Johncock ran out of fuel with two laps remaining! Janet Guthrie makes her IndyCar debut, and generally silenced her critics with her performance.
359 1976 Trenton Times Auto Classic (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 20 June 2022 Gordon Johncock redeems himself following his fuel issues at the previous Trenton race to claim victory here, in an event shortened by rain.
360 1976 Schaefer 500 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1976) 20 June 2022 Al Unser wins his first USAC Championship race in almost two years, despite experiencing several issues throughout the race! Janet Guthrie meanwhile became the first woman to compete at a 500-mile USAC event.
361 1977 Trentonian 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 24 June 2022 Wally Dallenbach wins his first USAC Championship race since the 1973 California 500, after overtaking Gordon Johncock with six laps remaining!
362 1978 Daily Mail Indy Trophy (partially found CBS and BBC One footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1978) 24 June 2022 My 200th article for 2022! To celebrate, I think it is time to document the other USAC race in England! Some will note the CBS broadcast is mostly available, but there is also a BBC One broadcast that is completely missing. It features the commentary from one Murray Walker!
363 1977 Michigan Grand Prix (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 25 June 2022 Gordon Johncock takes victory in his native Michigan after taking the lead five laps before the end.
364 1977 Jimmy Bryan 150 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 25 June 2022 Controversy folks, as winner Johnny Rutherford and Gordon Johncock got into a fistfight post-race! Triggered by an incident in the event where Johncock felt he was forced off the track.
365 1977 Rex Mays Classic (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 25 June 2022 Haven't documented a race at the Milwaukee Mile for a while. Anyhow, Johnny Rutherford generally controlled this one, though Gordon Johncock suffered a serious crash that required hospital treatment. Seeing as he returned to race two weeks later, I'd imagine it was not as serious as The New York Times claimed it was.
366 1977 Texas Grand Prix (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 26 June 2022 Back to Texas, with Tom Sneva edging out Al Unser late-on.
367 1977 American Parts 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 26 June 2022 Johnny Rutherford dominated this one, having led 81 of the 100 laps.
368 1977 Schaefer 500 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1977) 27 June 2022 Again, it appears the Schaefer 500 races have the most available information about them. Tom Sneva edges out Mario Andretti, the latter almost colliding with his pit crew during a botched attempt to stop at his pit area!
369 1978 Coors 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1978) 27 June 2022 Now, most 1978 races are publicly available, so not many to discuss here on this Wiki. Danny Ongais dominated this one after having achieving the final lead change less than halfway through.
370 1978 Norton Twin 200 (lost footage of USAC Championship Car Season race; 1978) 27 June 2022 That should be it for 1978 races. Johnny Rutherford dominated the race after having led more than half of it.
371 1979 Arizona Republic / Jimmy Bryan 150 (partially found footage of SCCA/CART IndyCar Series race; 1979) 29 June 2022 Yep, we are now moving into the CART era of IndyCar! Despite this being the first ever CART race, the NBC broadcast is completely missing, which I find weird considering how most 1978/1979 races are publicly available. I say it ranks alongside the 1962 Trenton 100, the 1978 Daily Express Indy Silverstone, and the lost Indy 500 broadcasts as an IndyCar holy grail.
372 1979 Gould Grand Prix (lost footage of SCCA/CART IndyCar Series race; 1979) 30 June 2022 Not much information on this one, Bobby Unser led 49 of the 75 laps to win.
373 1979 California 500 (lost footage of SCCA/CART IndyCar Series race; existence unconfirmed; 1979) 30 June 2022 Bobby Unser wins, with Rick Mears and Mario Andretti helping to achieve the first ever instance of teammates finishing 1-3 at a 500-mile championship car race! Unless I am very much mistaken, this is the final 1970s IndyCar race broadcast I will document, and the only one according to IndyCar on TV which has yet to have its existence be confirmed.
374 1980 Norton Twin 200 (lost footage of CART PPG IndyCar World Series race; 1980) 2 July 2022 It has been seven years since I wrote about and published Worms Battle Rally on the old Lost Media Wikia, my first lost media article! Quite fitting then that this race took place in July, with Johnny Rutherford edging out Bobby Unser to win.
375 1980 Tony Bettenhausen 200 (lost footage of CART PPG IndyCar World Series race; 1980) 2 July 2022 Johnny Rutherford claims victory in a race featuring heavy crashes from Mike Mosley and long-term leader Al Unser. The NBC coverage was cited as an example as to why motor racing was less popular compared to other sports back then.
376 1980 Primera Copa Mexico 150 (lost footage of CART PPG IndyCar World Series race; 1980) 2 July 2022 Now this is interesting, as while the first CART-sanctioned race in Mexico received no television coverage in America, it did get broadcast on Mexican television. Perhaps a lesser-known IndyCar broadcast holy grail? Anyhow, Rick Mears fended off teammate Bobby Unser to win.
377 1980 Miller High Life 150 (partially found footage of CART PPG IndyCar World Series race; 1980) 2 July 2022 A race perhaps most famous for Johnny Rutherford's terrifying crash! He was fortunate though, especially when considering the extensive damage to his helmet! Elsewhere, Tom Sneva controlled proceedings to claim victory.
378 1981 Kraco Car Stereo 150 (lost CART PPG IndyCar World Series race; 1981) 2 July 2022 Johnny Rutherford with another commanding win here, with seemingly only Bobby Unser capable of challenging him somewhat.
379 1916-1922 Universal Film Trophy Races (lost footage of AAA races; 1916-1922) 3 July 2022 Collection of IndyCar races that were filmed by Universal Films and showcased across the United States. The 1916 race is known for two tragic accidents that overall claimed the lives of three drivers, two mechanics, and possibly up to two spectators.
380 1996 Las Vegas 500K (partially lost footage of IRL Season race; 1996) 3 July 2022 Richie Hearn picks up his sole IndyCar win, in a race that featured three serious accidents. ABC's broadcast is interesting... the East Coast version ends 68 laps before the finish due to time constraints. The West Coast version is complete, but sadly is not currently publicly available. Maybe that copy from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Racing Museum will surface one day.
381 Dan Wheldon (partially lost on-board footage of fatal IndyCar crash; 2011) 3 July 2022 A terrible accident. Apparently, some viewing IndyCar Mobile's livestream saw the horrific final on-board moments. This footage has since been withheld, with the exception of a few extra seconds shown in a Nerve Center episode.
382 Robert Kubica's 2010 Japanese Grand Prix Q3 lap (lost audio of Formula One qualifying lap; 2010) 4 July 2022 Considered one of the greatest laps in Formula One history. The on-board footage has been found, but the audio is messed up as it is overlapped by a compilation of three on-boards. There are other videos of Kubica at the circuit on YouTube, but they are not the lap in question.
383 England 1-0 Scotland (lost footage of Schools' International football match; 1952) 4 July 2022 This match may well be the first to be televised in Scotland, beating out the Arsenal-Hibernian game by a few weeks.
384 Donkey Does F1 (partially found photos of Shrek character inflatable at Formula One races; 2004) 5 July 2022 Gutted All Things Lost did his Shrek video before I made this one, as this was absolutely worthy of a mention! With all those dark articles I have written, writing something light-hearted like this is a breath of fresh air. Included some photos here, mainly of the drivers signing Donkey. There is also a image of Donkey with two Jordan mechanics floating around somewhere... it is a tad too risqué for inclusion on the Lost Media Wiki, ha ha.
385 1985-1986 WFA Cup (lost list of entries for football tournament; 1985) 6 July 2022 The opening match of the 2022 UEFA Women's Euros began not long after this article was written! Anyhow, that tournament made me interested in what missing women's football media there is, and unsurprisingly considering the FA's apathy, there is a lot. For instance, there is no known surviving entries list for this tournament, so we have no idea about how many teams competed, nor most of the First Round games. The Final was won by Norwich Ladies 4-3 against Doncaster Belles.
386 Real Madrid 3-0 Racing Santander (lost footage of La Liga football match; 1954) 9 July 2022 The first football match to be televised in Spain! Real Madrid were about to enter a golden age lasting primarily from 1955-1960, although some say it extended to 1966.
387 Atlético Madrid 1-1 Real Madrid (lost footage of El Derbi Madrileño La Liga football match; 1958) 9 July 2022 This was the first match to be televised live in Spain! Real Madrid held on to claim its sixth La Liga title. Nowadays, all La Liga matches are televised live.
388 Real Madrid 1-0 Barcelona (partially found footage of El Clásico La Liga football match; 1959) 9 July 2022 Finally, the first televised El Clásico, as well as the first football match broadcast in the Catalan region! Barcelona lost the fight, but ultimately won the war, earning its first La Liga title in seven years.
389 1971 WFA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1971) 11 July 2022 Having recently obtained a copy of A History of the Women's FA Cup Final, it is only appropriate to resume documenting the lost WFA Cup media. This was the first WFA Cup Final, won by a dominant Southampton side that would go on to be finalists in every WFA Cup season in the 1970s! Really cool stuff here, and although not televised, a few cameras were present at the ground. Based on the book's mention of "surviving footage", it is likely most of the footage captured is missing, sadly.
390 1976 WFA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1976) 14 July 2022 The first WFA Cup Final to be televised, with 20 minutes on BBC One's Cup Final Grandstand. Also kickstarted the Southampton-QPR trilogy, the latter winning its fifth crown here! Seems the uncut footage is pretty much gone sadly, based on A History of the Women's FA Cup Final's note of only finding "surviving footage" despite its extensive research.
391 1977 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1977) 14 July 2022 The second in the Southampton-QPR trilogy, and this time, the latter wins thanks to a great strike from Carrie Staley and some nice goalkeeping from Pat Napier. Speaking of Staley, she received a rather infamous request from a newspaper photographer, which would not be acceptable in today's society.
392 1978 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1978) 14 July 2022 The trilogy concludes with Southampton destroying QPR! It is unclear whether the BBC televised any portion of the match, but Southern Television most likely did.
393 1979 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1979) 15 July 2022 Southampton wins once more, but I must say it feels surreal to be talking about Lowestoft on here! Some footage was shown on Multi-Coloured Swap Shop, which is a problem sadly as that show suffered badly from BBC's wiping practices.
394 EastEnders (lost broadcast tapes of BBC soap opera; 1986; 1989) 15 July 2022 For casual EastEnders fans, this may be quite the surprise. While all episodes exist in some form, 97 and 497's master tapes no longer exist in BBC's archives! That said, a master copy of 497 is rumoured to be stored at the British Film Institute, though obtaining it is easier said than done.
395 Arsenal 1-1 Sheffield United (lost radio commentary of football match; 1927) 16 July 2022 Ever heard of the phrase "Back to square one"? It is believed it originated from this football match, the first to receive radio commentary. A square system was used to note where the ball was, and cancelled plays usually resulted in action going "back to square one"!
396 IROC I (partially found footage of stock car races; 1973-1974) 16 July 2022 Might work on the missing IROC broadcasts eventually. But for now, thought I would detail the first IROC season, which was won by Mark Donohue in rather dominating fashion. Races 2 and 3 have been uploaded to YouTube courtesy of SMIFF TV. Whether 1 and 4 will resurface remains to be seen.
397 Not Only... But Also (partially found BBC sketch comedy show; 1965-1966; 1970) 17 July 2022 If you think the BBC's wiping of early Doctor Who episodes was bad, you will be frustrated with the backstory surrounding Not Only... But Also's lost episodes. Indeed, the show could have remained intact had the BBC accepted Peter Cook's offer. I have no idea why they refused said offer, other than red tape I suppose!
398 Brendan Behan's 1956 Panorama interview (lost interview footage of Irish playwright; 1956) 17 July 2022 Oh, this was a jolly fantastic one to write about! Ever wanted to learn about the first known instance of a certain expletive being uttered on British television? Well, here you go!
399 The Chase (partially found unaired Fox pilots for rejected American version of British game show; 2012) 18 July 2022 The Chase is on! Or, it would have been were it not for a Fox higher-up reshuffle. Based on the available introduction for Mark Labbett's pilot, I honestly wouldn't have enjoyed this dramatised spin-off.
400 1948 Summer Olympics (partially found television coverage of London Games; 1948) 19 July 2022 And there we have it folks: 400 articles! I did consider writing another Worms article, but I felt it wouldn't be interesting enough unlike the other Worms articles. Thus, I decided to go and write about perhaps one of BBC's greatest accomplishments. First Summer Olympics that the BBC televised, with a few other milestones, including regarding football, being made.
401 Robot Wars: Series 8 (partially found Science Channel reruns of robot combat game show; 2018) 25 July 2022 The road to 500 begins, starting with a strange "Americanised" version of Series 8 of Robot Wars. Not sure why it was necessary to replace Jonathan Pearce's commentary, and it seems a lot agree with me. Overall, an unsuccessful US debut, with only the first episode being fully found.
402 1950 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1950) 28 July 2022 After discovering that almost all televised matches featuring commentary from Jimmy Jewell are sadly gone forever, I can now document the 1950 FA Cup Final. Arsenal won its third Cup, defeating Liverpool via two goals from Reg Lewis.
403 1951 FA Cup Final (partially found footage of football match; 1951) 29 July 2022 Newcastle United's Jackie Milburn secures his side's fourth FA Cup! This will probably be the latest FA Cup Final I will do, as the 1953 edition onwards are all available, while 1952's coverage never happened as the BBC were banned from televising it for some reason by the FA Council.
404 1973 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1973) 29 July 2022 Southampton claims its third consecutive WFA Cup by beating Scottish side Westthorn United 2-0. Thanks to correspondence with A History of the Women's FA Cup Final author Chris Slegg, more information surrounding WFA Cup Final broadcasts has been found. Footage of this Final was recorded, but it is unknown if it was televised.
405 1974 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1974) 29 July 2022 Fodens pulls off one of the biggest WFA Cup Final upsets by handing Southampton its first ever loss! Footage certainly exists, with one Fodens player owning a copy of it. Whether it will publicly resurface remains unclear.
406 1982 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1982) 30 July 2022 Truly, the greatest sporting day in the history of the most easterly town in Britain! Very proud of the Lowestoft team indeed. Some brief highlights apparently were on World of Sport, but they alongside the full tape haven't resurfaced.
407 Railroad Tycoon (lost builds of cancelled Super Nintendo and Sega Mega Drive ports of PC business simulation game; 1993) 30 July 2022 I remember the blues music on Railroad Tycoon II, it is what made it so memorable in my opinion. Anyhow, both SNES and Mega Drive ports were in development between 1992-93, although neither were released. Unclear if a Genesis port was being developed, but I would imagine it was.
408 Manchester United Championship Soccer (lost build of Sega Mega Drive port of football game; 1995) 1 August 2022 Posted this just a day after attending the game where football FINALLY CAME HOME!! Very proud of the England Lionesses, so glad I got to be at Wembley for quite possibly a once in a lifetime moment. Anyhow, more football lost media, with amazingly a cancelled Mega Drive port of a football game! Very odd, considering football games were highly popular on the Mega Drive, not to mention the name Manchester United should sell units alone.
409 Coronation Street "Episode 1202" (lost episode of ITV soap opera; 1972) 3 August 2022 Surprised there were no articles on lost Coronation Street media until now. This is the only standard episode to be missing, possibly being destroyed or ending up too badly damaged to survive.
410 Pardon the Expression (lost pilots of Coronation Street sitcom spin-off; 1965) 3 August 2022 Speaking of Coronation Street, there were two pilots of the sitcom spin-off Pardon the Expression, starring Arthur Lowe as Leonard Swindley. Not much is known, although a script entitled "The Presentation" may well have been used for one of the two pilots.
411 Neil Shanahan (lost footage of fatal British Formula Ford Zetec Championship crash; 1999) 4 August 2022 Horrible accident that claimed the life of a driver tipped to be the next Eddie Irvine.
412 Elmer Trett (lost footage of fatal Top Fuel Motorcycle drag racing crash; 1996) 4 August 2022 Terrible accident that claimed the life of one of the biggest names in motorcycle drag racing history.
413 Roy Weaver III (lost footage of fatal IPOWER Dash Series accident; 2004) 5 August 2022 This time, a horrible collision at speed that took the life of a veteran track marshal.
414 María De Villota (lost footage of fatal Formula One crash; 2012) 6 August 2022 Horrible accident that not only ended De Villota's racing career, but would also claim her life a year afterwards due to the neurological damage she suffered. I and others consider this therefore to be a fatal accident. Audio from it is publicly available, but footage is likely to remain with HSE.
415 1985 Atlanta ARCA 500K (found footage of ARCA Permatex SuperCar Series race; 1985) 6 August 2022 Davey Allison claims victory late-on, in a race infamous for Stuart Lyndon's fatal accident. While the race was not televised, a tape was known to exist. It was eventually recovered in July 2020.
416 1953 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1953) 7 August 2022 Yep, we are going for it! The Formula One project truly starts here, and what a beginning it is indeed! A classic race between Fangio, Ascari, Farina, and Marimón, with Fangio winning after a kerfuffle on the last corner of the last lap! The final F1 race to be held under Formula 2 regulations, Ferrari stated this was going to be their last official race! An issue of La Stampa claims the race received some live television coverage.
417 1954 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1954) 7 August 2022 José Froilán González dominated this race to claim his second and last Formula One victory. Thanks to BBC Genome, documenting BBC broadcasts of F1 races is going to be relatively easy.
418 1954 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1954) 7 August 2022 Juan Manuel Fangio wins in a fortunate affair, as it seemed both Maserati's Stirling Moss and one-off Ferrari driver Alberto Ascari were more likely to win! Also, the streamliner Mercedes-Benz W196 looks absolutely magnificent.
419 1955 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1955) 10 August 2022 After writing two Indianapolis 500 races, time to document another part of the Triple Crown of Motorsport! Maurice Trintignant claims an unlikely win for Ferrari, especially when considering the performances of Mercedes and Lancia's Alberto Ascari. This was also Ascari's final race, which ended with a splash... quite a lot of footage is available, but the all-important TMC coverage is not.
420 1955 Dutch Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1955) 10 August 2022 Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss made it an easy 1-2 for Mercedes-Benz, meaning that Mercedes dominance in Formula One is not a recent concept. From a television standpoint, it was apparently the first to receive full live coverage.
421 1955 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1955) 11 August 2022 This race marked the end of Mercedes' original run in Formula One. It would not make a return until it supplied engines to Sauber in 1994, and finally returned as a constructor in 2010. Juan Manuel Fangio and Piero Taruffi made sure Mercedes ended its last race in style.
422 1956 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1956) 13 August 2022 Stirling Moss claims his first continental victory, after holding out a fast-closing Juan Manuel Fangio in a Lancia-Ferrari... Fangio driving for Ferrari still doesn't sound right to me after all these years!
423 1956 Belgian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1956) 13 August 2022 Peter Collins claims his first Formula One victory, winning in dominating fashion after Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss both encountered trouble.
424 1956 French Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1956) 13 August 2022 Peter Collins takes his second consecutive win, edging out teammate Eugenio Castellotti in the process. Interestingly, Team Lotus founder Colin Chapman drove a Vanwall for the event!
425 1956 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1956) 14 August 2022 Juan Manuel Fangio takes victory despite suffering ill health throughout! For a while, it look liked the British were about to start their period of dominance... that will have to wait a little while, however. Also, the second race of one Jack Brabham.
426 1956 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1956) 15 August 2022 Stirling Moss manages fuel and tyre issues to claim victory in a race famous for something one will probably never see in Formula One again. Peter Collins is, arguably, the most sporting driver in Formula One history.
427 1957 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1957) 16 August 2022 Juan Manuel Fangio completely dominated this one. Overall, it wasn't a good race for the top British drivers of the era...
428 1957 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1957) 16 August 2022 Formula One history was made here, as Stirling Moss took the first World Championship win achieved with a British car! Decades later, McLaren and Williams would dominate much of the 1980s and 1990s.
429 F1 2000 (lost pre-release builds of Formula One game; 2000) 16 August 2022 Seems F1 2010 wasn't the only Formula One game to have a pre-release version containing the previous season's cars! Closest one can get to playing this version with the 1999 cars is to gain a copy of F1 Challenge '99-'02.
430 1958 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1958) 17 August 2022 Maurice Trintignant claims another unlikely win, this time for Cooper-Climax! The rear engine revolution is starting. Also, quite a lot of notable debuts, including Graham Hill, Maria Teresa de Filippis, and a certain individual called Bernie Ecclestone...
431 1958 French Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1958) 17 August 2022 Mike Hawthorn achieves what was ultimately his final Formula One victory. The race marked Juan Manuel Fangio's final start too, as well as Phil Hill's first. Sadly, the event is also known for Luigi Musso's fatal accident.
432 1958 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1958) 18 August 2022 Peter Collins claims his third and final Formula One victory in dominant fashion. Sadly, he would suffer a fatal accident a race later at the German Grand Prix. From a television standpoint, we actually have some BBC footage! Re-broadcast in 1987, it raises speculation that the BBC might hold its full coverage of the race still.
433 1958 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1958) 18 August 2022 Tony Brooks makes a comeback to take victory from Mike Hawthorn! Hawthorn nevertheless requires just a point from the next race to secure the title!
434 Comedy Premiere (lost ATV comedy series; 1975) 22 August 2022 Collection of comedy pilots (and a one-off episode of The Kids from 47A) that were never followed up by full series. Among those include perhaps the last acting role on television for Bob Grant, most known for On the Buses.
435 Down the 'Gate (partially found ITV comedy series; 1975-1976) 22 August 2022 Thought I would check if any of the other On the Buses stars were involved in other projects with lost media. And here we are! It was thanks to Reg Varney himself that we actually have any surviving episodes of the show at all.
436 Advanced Driving with Graham Hill (lost ITV motoring series; 1974) 22 August 2022 Graham Hill I feel is underrated sometimes, especially when considering he is currently the only person to achieve the Triple Crown of Motorsport. Whereas his book of the same name is available, his TV show is not only missing, but is hardly mentioned at all nowadays. Quite obscure indeed.
437 Carlisle United 2-1 Plymouth Argyle (partially found footage of Football League Third Division match; 1999) 23 August 2022 One of the most famous matches ever. To those who may not be football fans, or otherwise do not understand why this match is so remarkable, I give you two words... Jimmy Glass.
438 1956 Southern Junior Floodlight Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1956) 23 August 2022 The first football match to be televised live by ITV! Very difficult to find any information on the match itself, however.
439 Chelsea 2-0 Sparta Prague (lost footage of international football match; 1957) 23 August 2022 An early match televised by ITV, as well as Chelsea's first public game to occur under Stamford Bridge's floodlights!
440 Bedford Town 1-2 Arsenal (partially found footage of FA Cup match; 1956) 23 August 2022 Interesting that Bedford Town has now been featured in three Lost Media Wiki articles, first in discussing the times it hosted WFA Cup Finals, and now an FA Cup replay where it came damn close to pulling off a major upset! ITV provided live coverage, but it didn't go very well...
441 Chelsea 1-1 Burnley (partially found footage of FA Cup match; 1956) 27 August 2022 Prior to 1991, FA Cup matches could be replayed multiple times... perhaps this explains why introducing penalty shootouts was a good idea!
442 West Ham United 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur (partially found footage of FA Cup match; 1956) 27 August 2022 Another early FA Cup game to be televised by ITV, with Tottenham coming out on top in a competitive game. A highlights package was made publicly available, though Spurs' first goal is absent for unknown reasons.
443 1980 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1980) 27 August 2022 St Helens are more synonymous with rugby than any other sport. However, it does have one football triumph to boast about!
444 1981 WFA Cup Final (lost footage of football match; 1981) 28 August 2022 Southampton claims its eighth and final WFA Cup in its original form. An end of an era indeed.
445 Blue Peter (partially found segments of Robot Wars teams on children's television series; 1998) 28 August 2022 Some more Robot Wars lost media, this time featuring Dartford Girls Grammar and Bodmin Community College on Blue Peter. The only footage currently available was actually recovered from a previous piece of lost media, Episode 1 of Robot Wars Revealed.
446 See Hear (lost appearance of Robot Wars team on BBC magazine show; 1999) 28 August 2022 See Hear seems fantastic for what it provides. One episode featured Team Berserk, who introduced Berserk 2 for the first time. Berserk 2 notably gave Hypno-Disc its first real challenge!
447 Savile's Travels (partially found Jimmy Savile radio show; 1968-1973) 28 August 2022 Back to documenting the most evil man in the history of British television... and radio too, sadly. By far the most disturbing yet, with 45 recordings of Savile allegedly behaving inappropriately on the show and during off-air moments. Three others were uploaded to YouTube in October-November 2012, one by Channel 4 News. Needless to say, listener discretion is strongly advised.
448 San Lorenzo de Almagro 1-1 River Plate (lost footage of Argentine Primera División football match; 1951) 29 August 2022 The first football match to be televised in Argentina! José Maravilla made history by scoring the first goal shown on Argentine television, but had no idea until many years later.
449 Lowestoft Town 3-0 AFC Hornchurch (partially found footage of Isthmian League Premier Division play-off final; 2014) 29 August 2022 I suppose this must be the second greatest day in Lowestoft football history, after the 1982 WFA Cup Final!
450 Captain Midnight broadcast signal intrusions (partially lost real-time footage of television hijacks; 1986) 1 September 2022 For my 450th article, I thought documenting one of the most famous television hijacks would be appropriate. This intrusion would remain missing until 2013! But why is this "partially lost", you may ask? A week earlier, John R. MacDougall hijacked HBO's signal for a test run... which occurred well past midnight, with very few viewers witnessing it! Yeah, might be a difficult one to find, ha.
451 Colin Scott (lost death footage at Yellowstone National Park hot spring; 2016) 2 September 2022 Terrible accident that claimed the life of a Psychology graduate. It emphasises the importance of following Yellowstone regulations and keeping to the beaten track, as sadly over 20 people have died from hot springs at the park since 1890.
452 Atomic Sunrise Festival (partially found footage and soundtrack of British music festival; 1970) 2 September 2022 Watch this space, because on 22nd September 2022, the long-awaited film by Adrian Everett will finally be publicly released via a stream! An important event for glam, prog, and heavy rock, particularly if one is a fan of Genesis, Hawkwind, and a former acoustic guitarist called David Bowie.
453 PSV Eindhoven 2-1 E.V.V. Eindhoven (lost footage of Netherlands Football League Championship match; 1950) 2 September 2022 I thought the first live televised football match in the Netherlands was a game featuring the national side against Sweden. Ultimately, it turns out the Lichtstad Derby beat it to the punch by about two years!
454 Netherlands 0-0 Sweden (lost footage of international football match; 1952) 2 September 2022 The first live televised international football match in the Netherlands, as well as the first in general to be televised across the country! A shame that it was seemingly a boring game, though.
455 The Big Breakfast (lost appearance of Robot Wars team on Channel 4 breakfast show; 1998) 2 September 2022 Another obscure appearance that probably helped promote Robot Wars before its first series. Does make me wonder just how many Robot Wars teams made appearances on other shows that we currently don't know about. All of them are highly valued by the Robot Wars Wiki, it must be said!
456 Bullseye (partially found John Cooper episode of British game show; 1989) 3 September 2022 A seemingly innocent episode of a British game show holding a dark secret that would go unnoticed for decades. It is amazing just how well the sketch resembles John Cooper.
457 National Professional Soccer League (partially found footage of soccer matches; 1967) 4 September 2022 The birth of modern professional football in the United States- Wait, soccer, that's the one! It didn't go particularly well though, considering it was the outlaw league facing the FIFA-backed but still struggling United Soccer Association! What a mess, I must say, and CBS' coverage didn't really improve things much.
458 Stade de Reims 2-1 FC Metz (partially found footage of French Division 1 football match; 1956) 7 September 2022 This encounter was the first league match to be televised live in a France, during a period where Stade de Reims was a European powerhouse!
459 1952 Coupe de France Final (partially found footage of football match; 1952) 8 September 2022 The first football match to be televised live in France, and what a match! Nice and Bordeaux put on an eight-goal thriller, which certainly convinced many of the nay-sayers about airing football!
460 France 3-1 West Germany (partially found footage of international football match; 1952) 8 September 2022 The first international football match to be televised live in France, with Les Bleus overcoming one of its big rivals.
461 France 6-3 Belgium (partially found footage of FIFA World Cup qualifying match; 1956) 9 September 2022 Think this shall mark the end of lost French football broadcasts for now, France defeating Belgium on-route towards qualifying for the 1958 FIFA World Cup. A taped 45-minute broadcast was crucial for that RTF being allowed to provide live coverage of the Stade de Reims-FC Metz match.
462 1958 Moroccan Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1958) 10 September 2022 Stirling Moss won the battle, but Mike Hawthorn won the war, becoming Britain's first World Champion over Moss by one point. This marked Hawthorn's final race too. Sadly, the race is also known for Stuart Lewis-Evans' fatal accident, which contributed to Vanwall leaving the sport.
463 1959 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1959) 10 September 2022 The beginning of the Jack Brabham/Cooper-Climax era, although it seemed the race was easily heading Stirling Moss' way. Additionally, a proportion of a live Dutch broadcast was subject to a telerecording! The oldest known available remnants of a live Formula One broadcast I believe.
464 1959 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1959) 11 September 2022 Jack Brabham dominated this one, leading every lap without any real competition. Also, one of the few Formula One races not to feature Ferrari!
465 1959 Portuguese Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1959) 11 September 2022 Stirling Moss strikes back with a masterclass of a performance. Jack Brabham suffered a scary accident at this race, he was lucky to escape unhurt!
466 1959 Italian Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1959) 12 September 2022 Ferrari's modern race strategies have come under fire recently. But back in the 1950s... they were honestly not much better! Stirling Moss wins after out-smarting the Ferraris in terms of tyre conservation, with Cooper also securing the Constructors' Championship. Also, unless I am very much mistaken, this will be the last article surrounding a 1950s Formula One television broadcast! Onwards now to the 1960s, which will probably make the bulk of the F1 articles on this Wiki.
467 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans (partially found footage of World Sports Car Championship race; 1955) 15 September 2022 I suspect even non-racing fans may have heard of this one... still, aside from documenting that moment, it is also important to detail the race itself, with Jaguar winning out against Ferrari and Mercedes in the end. The event received a ton of coverage from the Eurovision Network, five hours of which were televised live. A huge achievement for the time period.
468 1960 Monaco Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1960) 16 September 2022 Stirling Moss claims the first ever World Championship win for Lotus! In a race also marking the debut of John Surtees, a few partially live broadcasts occurred. This included the BBC, but no more Radio Times issues scans I'm afraid, as no scans from the 1960s onwards are on BBC Genome.
469 1960 Dutch Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1960) 16 September 2022 A granite square decided that Jack Brabham should be the victor in a duel involving Stirling Moss. The race also marked the debut of two-time champion Jim Clark, was fully televised live by Belgian channel BRT. Sadly, the race featured an accident triggered by a brakes failure from Dan Gurney's BRM, which would hit and kill fan Piet Aalder.
470 1960 French Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1960) 17 September 2022 Jack Brabham takes his third consecutive World Championship victory, after beating out the Ferraris deemed the favourites due to their higher top speeds. Brabham considered it his "most satisfying" race, primarily because of his duel with Phil Hill!
471 1960 British Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1960) 18 September 2022 Heading up to Silverstone soon for some British Touring Car Championship action! Anyhow, Jack Brabham claims his fourth consecutive World Championship victory, but my word was Graham Hill unlucky, having achieved a major comeback from last to first only for brake issues to rob him in the end. This I believe is the first race to be televised by ITV, but the ITV Sport Archive indicates the broadcast hasn't survived.
472 1960 Portuguese Grand Prix (partially found footage of Formula One World Championship race; 1960) 18 September 2022 Jack Brabham makes it five-in-a-row, with this win also securing his second consecutive Drivers' Championship! That's it for the 1960 Formula One Season.

Planned articles/other ideas[edit | edit source]

Number Title About
1 Documentation of television firsts Early television history is not really documented much on the Lost Media Wiki, especially when it comes to television firsts. I think the Wiki could do with some more historic articles, so this has been a big project of mine ever since I wrote about Telecrime.
2 Baird Company We have only just scratched the surface of Baird Company television with the 1931 Epsom Derby. Still some more interesting articles to write about, including the following (ones in bold are done):
  • Phonovision
  • The Man With The Flower In His Mouth
  • 1932 Epsom Derby
  • Closure of the BBC 30-line Television Service
3 Catchphrase (lost pilot of revived ITV game show; 2012) Loved Catchphrase back in the day, where all one had to do was "say what you see" as Roy Walker put it! The revival is OK based on the few episodes I have watched, so this might make for an interesting little article.
4 Football Planning to write some more football articles, including some outside the 1930s-1950s region! Includes one dear to my heart, and some influential early radio broadcasts.
5 Formula One (1953-1980s) Loved Formula One for decades now, think it is finally time I should document the missing television broadcasts, starting from 1953 and ending (I presume) somewhere in the early-1980s.
