I've certainly heard items from series like the Chilton 'space' series. +
Some MacColl. And I do think the BBC are gradually adding more archive
material to an accessible 'archive'. The problem is that this is a slow
process given the resources they have.

Personally, I'd love to hear "The Northern Drift" again. But suspect most
people now would  be baffled by "Close the coalhouse door"!

However, much material will have been lost... and sometimes then recovered
from 'home recordings'. ;->

One of the curios here is the clash between trying to limit home recording
and then using it to recover 'lost' material decades later. Various items
have appeared again having been recovered from private recordings.
