** After its cancellation on UK television, ''Series/ThatWasTheWeekThatWas'' was exported to the USA, with Frost as frontman and a cast including Buck Henry, Henry Morgan, and a pre-fame Gene Hackman and Alan Alda. The series ran from January 1964 to May 1965; the video of most of the episodes has long since been wiped, although a recording of the pilot was donated to the Library of Congress by a collector. Fortunately, teenage fan Art Chimes made audio recordings of nearly every episode, and they are available to listen to for free on the University of Georgia's library website.

* The UK version of ''Series/FraggleRock'' featured wraparound segments set in a lighthouse and featuring Fulton Mackay as the Captain, a retired sailor (replaced, after Mackay's death in 1987, by John Gordon Sinclair as his nephew P.K. and then Simon O'Brien as his son B.J.), instead of the workshop segments with Gerry Parkes as Doc seen in North America. Many of the tapes of the UK wraparound segments were wiped; an effort led by ''Fraggle Rock'' fan Alex Taylor has [[http://www.nightshade.org.uk/fraggleuk.html confirmed]] that of the 96 episodes, 29 still have surviving official copies, 58 only exist as off-air recordings (of variable quality) by home viewers, and nine are partially or completely missing. Because the production company ([=TVS=] produced the UK elements) has changed hands several times and production rights can't be sorted out, they cannot be broadcast or released again anyway. That's why when ''Fraggle Rock'' was rerun in the UK, the episodes were the North American segments that featured Doc rather than the Captain.

* The seventh episode of ''Series/TheTick'' never made it to air because FOX's [[TheFireflyEffect disturbingly frequent]] practice of airing series out of order resulted in the series being too hard to follow when placed out of original continuity.

* The vast majority of the master tapes of Creator/GeneSiskel and Creator/RogerEbert's first two television series, ''Opening Soon at a Theater Near You''/''Sneak Previews'' (PBS, 1975-82) and ''At the Movies'' (syndicated, 1982-86), were wiped by the production companies. Although off-air recordings of hundreds of episodes across both series have been found and uploaded to the online archive at [[http://siskelandebert.org/ Siskel & Ebert.org]], there are still hundreds of episodes missing.

* David Frost had been a household name in Britain for a decade and a half by the time he [[Film/FrostNixon interviewed]] UsefulNotes/RichardNixon. Unfortunately, much of his early work is lost to the ages.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i51DU_rj4BE The infamous clip]] of a [[{{Stripperific}} scantily-clad]] KatyPerry singing a {{bowdlerised}} version of "Hot n Cold" with Elmo was banned due to complaints about Perry's wedding dress being too risque. Perry would parody it on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' by appearing on a talk show as a teenage library volunteer [[TakeThat wearing a low-cut Elmo shirt]].

* The local versions of ''Romper Room'' have mostly disappeared due to station managers erasing the master tapes and reusing them for other programming.

** All of the videotape footage from the 1970 colour series of ''Series/NotOnlyButAlso'' was wiped despite Cook and Moore offering the BBC replacement tapes on their own dime. The exterior film footage has survived, as have eight of the 16 black and white shows from 1965-66 (including the pilot but not the 1966 Christmas special), shows which were transferred to film. Audio recordings exist of at least half a dozen of the wiped episodes of ''Not Only... But Also'', as do the scripts of Series 2 and 3.

* A 1971 episode of ''TheDickCavettShow'' was never aired (and probably never will be) because a guest, ''Prevention Magazine'' publisher J.I. Rodale, [[FatalMethodActing died of a heart attack during taping]]. The story about Rodale's death has been recounted several times by Cavett himself.
