* The Campania episode of ''Series/KitchenNightmares'' was taken out of circulation a few years after its initial run because the owner committed suicide. Making matters worse, said owner killed himself by jumping off New York's George Washington Bridge into the Hudson River -- during the episode, Gordon Ramsay warned him that unless he turned things around, his restaurant would "float down the Hudson River".

* The Fox News docudrama series, "Legends & Lies" has an entire third season filmed (about the Civil War) that probably won't see the light of day, following producer and commentator Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment lawsuit and subsequent firing from the network.
* When NBC was first airing ''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' in October 1999, they skipped the 4th episode, titled "Kim Kelly is My Friend," uncomfortable with its darker themes. They canceled the series in March 2000 after airing episode 13, but they brought it back for one night in July to show the last three episodes (16, 17, and 18), skipping two more. It wasn't until October 2000, when the series was in reruns on Fox Family (later ABC Family and Freeform) that the three episodes skipped by NBC ("Kim Kelly is My Friend," Dead Dogs and Gym Teachers," and "Noshing and Moshing") were finally shown.

** Hancock's series for Creator/{{ITV}} have fared even less well than his BBC series, and only the efforts of the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society to KeepCirculatingTheTapes has allowed what has survived to be viewed by contemporary audiences.

* The Dutch TV series ''Pension Hommeles'' and ''Ja Zuster Nee Zuster'' from the late 1950s launched or bolstered the career of many Dutch singers and actors. The songs were written by Annie M.G. Schmidt and several amongst them are considered to be classics. Unfortunately most of the original tapes of the series were lost in the intervening decades, and the first episodes of ''Pension Hommeles'' were broadcast live, so there were never tapes of it in the first place.

* Clarkson, Hammond and May's ''Series/{{Top Gear}}'': Series 9 Episode 1 was broadcast on 28th January 2007 and never repeated. It was the first episode after Richard Hammond's near-death experience in the Vampire dragster and featured an in-depth look at the crash. As well as not being repeated, the episode is unavailable to purchase on Amazon and iTunes, nor the German-only DVD release of Series 9 which replaces Episode 1 with the Winter Olympics special. As a result there is no legal way to watch the rest of the episode including the Road Works in 24 Hours challenge, the Power Test and the Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car with Jamie Oliver.

** Even ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' itself came very close to being ''completely'' wiped. According to the Monty Python documentary "Almost the Whole Truth (The Lawyer's Cut)", the BBC had designated the show for "wiping" after the first season aired, believing it had no shelf life for reruns. Terry Gilliam found out and cut a deal with the BBC; he would buy them new tapes to use in exchange for the master tapes of Season 1 and all future episodes. [[note]](This meant that when the show really took off and the BBC changed its mind about rerunning it, they had to go back to Gilliam to strike their own prints.)[[/note]] Some episodes, however, are incomplete, having been trimmed before broadcast:

*** Two episodes only exist in black and white editions for export, and a third only existed in this form until a tape surfaced at BBC Scotland in the late 1990s and was restored to broadcast quality. One of them, the first-season episode "Caught in the Act" (aka "The Playgirl Club"), was thought to only exist as a low-quality studio master until a broadcast quality copy aired on Australian television in 2016. The other, the second season episode "Commonwealth Games", had had a scene cut by the censors (involving administering a "sex test" to the potential Commonwealth Games athletes) and the only existing version of the episode featured a noticeable jump cut. Video of the scene was recovered in 2009 from the National Archives of Australia. [[note]](In 2010, a missing spoof advertisement for "Dreaded Wheat" from the otherwise-complete second season episode "The Lost Tribe" was also recovered from the NAA.)[[/note]]

* The British series ''Series/AdamAdamantLives'', about an adventurer in Edwardian England who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up in the 1960s, ran for 29 episodes across two seasons in 1966-67 and was one of the inspirations for the ''Film/AustinPowers'' movies. Only 17 episodes survive, all but two from the first season. The scripts of the missing episodes have survived, however, and were included as a bonus on the DVD release along with a four-minute audio clip of the first episode from the second season.

* ''Series/ThePrisoner'' episode "Living in Harmony" was not broadcast in its original American run on CBS for featuring Six rejecting a call to arms, not a message the network wanted to send during [[TheVietnamWar an active draft]]. (The official explanation at the time characterized the call to arms as a "walking hallucination" read: [[DrugsAreBad mind-altering drugs]].) All later runs show this episode in its correct place.

* In general, tokusatsu from before the days of home video formats are harder to track down, but many, such as OsamuTezuka's Thunder Mask from the 1970s, and several tokusatsu from the 1950s-early 1970s such as Sonny Chiba adventure ''Allah no Shisha'' and many of Nippon Gendai's television shows are lost due to varying factors such as rights issues in the case of many 1970s shows or lack of video preservation.
