A missing episode of The Adventure Game just turned up on YouTube

The Adventure Game

The Adventure Game is one of those classics of British TV that virtually everyone of a certain age remembers. As with many shows that virtually everyone of a certain age remembers, the BBC wiped quite a few of the episodes or simply lost them.

A recent DVD release contained all the episodes that were thought to still survive. But lo and behold! Look what happened this very morn! Someone uploaded an entire missing episode to YouTube!

YouTube and the Beeb being what they are, I imagine it’ll disappear quite quickly, so watch it while you can…
