Ten Years After
Priceless BBC archive material from 1973, as 'Blue Peter' celebrate the tenth anniversary of Doctor Who with the help of suave incumbent Jon Pertwee, and some clips that, incredibly, the BBC would wipe shortly after this show. The Hartnell / Troughton transformation, for example, only exists as part of this recording.
Seeing this as a child was incredibly exciting for me as it was the first evidence that my Dad wasn't just making things up about the history of the programme, and the brief glimpses of it's long and mysterious past haunted my imagination for years to come.
