* The television adaptation of ''DrKildare'' starring Richard Chamberlain had one, which was unique in that it may have been the first [[{{crossover}} crossover episode]] in TV history. The pilot for the MGM psychiatry drama series ''The Eleventh Hour'' (1962-64) was produced and intended to air as a 1962 episode of ''Dr. Kildare'', but after initial test screenings, the episode was {{recut}}, removing all scenes and references of Kildare and Gillespie. The newly edited version was then aired as the premiere episode of ''The Eleventh Hour'': "Ann Costigan: a Duel on a Field of White." The uncut, original episode of ''Dr. Kildare'' was never aired or publicly seen until 2013, when it was released on DVD as a bonus feature on Warner Archive's ''Dr. Kildare: The Complete First Season''.

* Another prominent victim of the BBC's practice of tape-wiping was ''Series/TopOfThePops''. Most early episodes were wiped by the BBC only four complete episodes exist from the 1960s (one and most of another with the presenter's links mute), and the show's archive only exists in full from 1977 onwards. Even then, episodes featuring disgraced presenter Jimmy Savile have been removed from the rerun rotation. Some of them can be found on YouTube.

** The drama anthology ''BBC Sunday-Night Play'' aired from 1960-1963. Of 138 episodes, only 15 survive. Notable among the missing is the story ''Madhouse on Castle Street'', which had the young Music/BobDylan ('''!''') as a kind of GreekChorus, commenting on the action through song (including one of the first major public performances of "Blowin' in the Wind"). Especially strange is that it wasn't junked until 1968, by which time Dylan was, you know, [[{{Understatement}} sort of famous]].

* Hardly anyone has seen the earliest episodes of the wildly popular Mexican sitcom ''Series/ElChavoDelOcho'' because it originated as a sketch on an hour-long variety show "Chespirito", named for Chavo's creator. The better sketches were edited together into half-hour episodes (resulting in a short season zero), but they're an OldShame; the earliest Chavo sketches haven't been seen in decades.
** There are some actual missing episodes of the series - at best, only their brazilian dub versions remain. It's not been revealed why they were lost, but it's rumored the 1985 Mexico City earthquake could be related, as it damaged some studios of the Televisa network, which broadcasted the series.

* ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'': Channel Four in the UK screens ELR on a repeating loop in the early part of the morning (between eight and ten am). This appears to be designed so that it can be recorded and replayed later in the day by people getting ready for a day's work who are too busy for TV. But two Series Six episodes have never been screened by C4: the content of "Marie's Statue" (suggestive artwork) and "No Roll!" (Ray and Debra's sex life) are deemed too extreme for daytime viewing by British audiences. Which is strange, as both screened in prime-time in the notoriously more conservative and prudish USA without problems. So should be a shoe-in for British TV. Evidently not... it has been suggested that the ''real'' reason for the omission of these shows is that the advertising sponsors of the morning reruns are nervous about the content.
