My apologies - totally got the wrong end of the stick! Yes, RAM has
been dead and dropped by the Beeb for 6 years now, so the letters
didn't even click in my mind.

Hmmm, interesting problem - I never thought about what happens to
archive material like that.Might be something in the blog eg
or use the form here

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
