Lost Doctor Who Episodes and Unions
I am a Doctor Who fan but for me, Doctor Who started with Tom Baker. I knew there were previous Doctors but I am not so avid a fan that I knew the history of the show. I was recently reading that many of the episodes from the William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton years were "wiped" by the BBC. Some were recovered but many are gone forever. I just read today that some of the impetus for the "wipe" came from one of the British Unions. It seems that they were worried that if the BBC had a large archive of material, they would be able to replay them and avoid making new shows. The unions figured that would jeopardize jobs. Incredible!
Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it
In the past men created witches: now they create mental patients.
Relinquish liberty for the purposes of defense in an emergency?
Why? It would seem that in an emergency, of all times, one needs
his greatest strength. So if liberty is strength and slavery is weakness,
liberty is a necessity rather than a luxury, and we can ill afford
to be without it—least of all during an emergency.
