The quest is the quest! We are delighted to welcome Wigan’s own Philip Morris – a celebrated archive hunter and founder of the Television International Enterprises Archive (TIEA), an archive restoration company that actively searches for lost television.

With a quest that has taken him around the globe, Philip’s biggest recovery has been nine Doctor Who missing episodes found in Nigeria, from the serials The Enemy of the World and The Web of Fear featuring Patrick Troughton.

Philip will be joined in conversation with the BFI’s Dick Fiddy as part of our afternoon of BFI DVD curated content on the Saturday afternoon and is a must for fans of archive TV!
