    Since all episodes on the BBC website have expired for this documentary series, I just wondered if there are any episodes in circulation? I've only seen the Golden Age of Coach Transport offering and was most impressed by the amount of clear footage used throughout it.

    By no means comprehensive, but as full a list as you're likely to find:

    BFI | Film & TV Database | TIME SHIFT [BBC4, 2002- ]

    Would you happen to have any of those Smudge?

    Thanks Poppy -

    As you say, there have to be far more than those listed. I will have to dig around and see what I have lying about here...

    They repeat them fairly frequently. In fact the most recent one must have only disappeared from the iPlayer an hour or so before your post . There's an interesting-looking one on tonight

    BBC - BBC Four Programmes - Time Shift, Series 11, Dear Censor

    Thanks for the tip on tonight's programme...

    I have 'Last Days of Steam' and 'Pile It High, Sell It Cheap' on disc. Really wanted to see 'All the Fun of the Fair' back in August but got my days mixed up (Time Shift, I guess?!) and missed it. Does anyone have this?

    You could try looking here for info

    Ask-Adders BBC Listings for BBC Four

    Not listed as a programme itself, but by the title of the episode with Timeshift at the end, ie British Spies: Time Shift

    If you scroll thru it, you should see alot of the Timeshift eps, if someone had the time to copy and paste, they could gather a good list.


    BTW I'm sure I have somewhere, A Game of Two Eras 1957-2007: Time Shift
