New Documentary: The Native Hue of Resolution

A Who-related project on Kickstarter is looking for founding to create a DVD of a documentary looking into why TV programmes were destroyed and charting the hunt for Britain's lost television shows.

There has been great progress since 1993 and the launch of the BFI scheme to find missing TV programmes, but still thousands of hours of television are still missing, including 97 episodes of Doctor Who.

The Native Hue of Resolution, created by Farcical Films/Kaleidoscope, was made especially for screening at BFI Southbank, debuting at the British Film Institute in London last December.

The documentary is narrated by Peter Purves (First Doctor companion Steven Taylor) and features contributions from notable television personalities such as Barry Cryer, Jasper Carrott and Terry Jones. The documentary also features various footage found during the making of the film which was previously thought lost.

A project on Kickstarter has begun to get the documentary released on DVD with extras and clips of previously lost material. Donations of over £20 will receive a copy of the DVD or an invitation to a launch event for the film in 2015. At the time of writing, the funding is just over half way.
