    I am writing regarding the recent discovery of a lost episode of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ – Licensed to Drill.

    I have that actual episode on a DVD made by the BBC titled “The Lost Episodes” along with various other ‘lost episodes’. I am not sure if you have a record of making this DVD. I purchased it some years ago now but cannot remember who I purchased it from although ebay rings a bell. I wonder if you can help me with this as I am not sure if there are others with the same DVD or I have a genuine claim to it?

    David Jason as Del in an Abbey National TV commercial.
    Not sure if this has been posted here before…

    I think I’ve found a short bit of Del dialogue which was cut from Miami Twice Part 1. It’s him explaining how he got the tickets from Alex the travel agent, and he actually uses the phrase “Miami twice” which I don’t think was mentioned anywhere else.

    Does anyone know if this was on the original broadcast? It’s certainly not on the DVD.

    It comes from a BBC1 trailer in Christmas 1991. It’s not my tape, and not my upload.

    I really dont understand why the BBC wont release new only fools and horses DVD’s, with all missing scenes, and bonus features restored.

    If the BBC think this would be a really expensive thing to do – then that’s silly, because the true OFAH fans would be more than happy to pay for the DVD – so that way the BBC make up on the cash thats been lost.

    I’m sure this whole website is one big copyright issue for the BBC? shame they block the footage of missing scenes

    It’s gone now. BBC Worldwide removed it. Perhaps there should be a way to post videos on this site, that way BBC worldwide won’t get to ’em.

    does anybody know/think they will remaster and release an Official BBC DVD with the 8 rare/lost episodes on it, because I am a BIG fan and I only have them in crap/low VHS quality on a non-official DVD, and as they say nothing is lost forever

      I really wish the BBC would do it – but they simply wont, and it’s just sheer madness, I really thought the BBC would have buckled under the sheer weight of the public wanting new only fools DVDS with missing scenes – but they haven’t…….. sadly.

    Del and Rodders at there best with a touch of Uncle Albert for good measure, class!!

    • Liam says:

      Hi pal, do you think BBC would eventualy release the 8 rare/lost episodes remastered and on an Official BBC DVD? because did you know they have NEVER released these on an Official BBC DVD once. I actualy sent a complaint to the Official BBC complaint section today. I only have them in crap VHS quality.

    Is it just me, or was that scene very surreal, especially how del looked up towards the camera at the end – i wonder if there are any more of these 1 minute advertisements hidden away anywhere
