Great to see that Neil and Eric are going through the same door again and an interesting article...

Many thanks for the scripts Garrett. Much appreciated. Odd that Ali Baba's Camel hasn't surfaced so far. Episode 4 is said to be the winner of the Prix de Jeunesse in Munich and was repeated because of that in July 1968 subtitled the "Fairly Pointless Show". Weird that this episode seems to be lost somehow.Garrett Gilchrist wrote:I'd have to check, but for series 1 most of the episodes obviously survive in full (1-2, 5-6, and 9-13), with two episodes surviving afterward (Do Not Adjust Your Stocking, and an episode with the Bonzos performing "Beautiful Zelda," which survives on video, unusually.
I seem to recall a script or two from the series getting out there on the web - one featuring Ali Baba's Camel.
"In 2003 the BFI had camera scripts for episodes numbered 1("Happy Boxing Day and a Preprosterous New Year), 4, and 12. Think I typed them all up."
Here also is show 12, courtesy my website a few years back.
