Reports are coming in that 106 supposedly "lost" Dr. Who episodes are being held hostage in Ethiopia. President Obama is threatening to send in the Navy SEALS to rescue them...

Okay, the "hostage" and "SEALs" part I made up.

But the real news is that the 106 lost episodes from the Hartwell and Troughton days have apparently been found in the possession of the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency and in Sierra Leone.

These episodes were lost in an ill considered clean out of the BBC archives and thought to be lost forever. But dedicated fans have searched for them for years, and apparently found them.

BBC is negotiating their return. What a wonderful 50th anniversary gift for Dr. Who!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
