The purpose of this site is to preserve material, so that if tapes are wiped or lost - as has happened with many historic television programmes - a record exists. The files on this site exist in a form that is of no commercial advantage to anyone - the images are small and the resolution is much too low to be exploited. No one makes any money from this site. Having said all of that...if anyone feels that I have infringed their rights, I will gladly acknowledge their copyright interest or remove the item from public view. Just e-mail me.
