Dear Dr Scott

 

I can honestly say, hand to my two beating hearts... that this information
doesn't exist at TVNZ.

 

There is no correspondence between TVNZ and TIEA. 

 

We are well aware that many Dr Who episodes were lost by the BBC, and that
some have been restored by overseas broadcasters who bought rights and
retained files.  We have trawled our archives to see if we had copies,
however our licence arrangements with the BBC don’t generally entitle us
to retain them beyond our broadcast rights.

 

In that case section 18(e) of the Act applies.  In accordance with Section
19(b) of the Act we advise that you have the right to seek an
investigation and review of the above refusal by making a complaint under
Section 28(3) to an Ombudsman.

 

Regards

Brent
