Missing Dr Who found in Nigeria

Nine missing episodes of Doctor Who, filmed in the 1960s, have been found at a TV station in Africa.

During the 1960s and 1970s the BBC destroyed many of the drama's original transmission tapes.

However, many episodes were made into prints which were used by foreign broadcasters.

The haul includes most of the classic story The Web of Fear from 1968, which starred Patrick Troughton as the Doctor.
