Interestingly the Genome service has an \Explorer option whereby it is
supposed to allow you to search the Archives. However I've not yet got
it to find anything.

When doing a search on Genome itself sometimes there are links to
recordings on iPlayer.

There are indeed quite a few OTR enthusiasts who have provided long
forgotten recordings from off-air. One series recovered entirely from
enthusiasts was "Parsely Sidings."

There's a great guy one Keith Wickham who restores off-air recordings
for R4X. He's on Facebook.

On another group on FB a member reports:

Re: I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again

"Having a clearout before a house move and these tapes, 'obtained'
when I worked in the Tape Library at Ken.House, will be donated to
Kaleidoscope for their safe keeping. They are the un-cut studio tapes
for the complete 1973 series of 'I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again'. The
BBC actually has digital copies of all of these (plus some more) which
I gave them, via Keith W.... a few years ago. Oh, did I get even a
'thank you'? Nope. So, the tapes will go to Chris Perry's Kaleidoscope
team as they'll probably keep them better than the Beeb will! Just
noticed that there is a reel missing from the 11.11.73 recording, it's
here somewhere! I still have to locate the some other stuff too, the
loft beckons! Oh, in case you're wondering, I 'obtained' them when I
was told to wipe them and re-use the tapes. I took them home instead."

That gives us some hope ...
