Q: How can I obtain a copy of TV program [title]?

A: Unfortunately, individual episodes of TV programs are not usually released to the public for reasons of copyright and also because a lot of older programs are no longer kept by TV stations, or maintained in a format that is compatible with current equipment.  I can only suggest that you contact the television station that originally produced the program (a list of addresses can be found below) or contact the National Film and Sound Archive. But, again, without permission of the copyright holder(s) — and some stations no longer have the copyright on programs they used to air — they may be unable to release any footage.

However, certain classic and contemporary television programs are being retrieved from the archives where possible and being released on DVD — check your local or online DVD retailer

If you have a comment or complaint to make about a program that you have seen on television… do not email Television.AU!  This website has no connection or affiliation to any television station and you are best to forward your complaint in writing to the television station on which you saw the program  (contact addresses are below for the national and commercial broadcasters), the Australian Communications and Media Authority or Free TV Australia.

      Hi Otto. Your chances of obtaining footage are very slim, usually for reasons of copyright or because footage may simply no longer exist.

      You could try contacting the channel which produced the program or possibly the production company if you know who that is or even the National Film and Sound Archive.

        Hi Andrew,
        I wish to cite you and your stories about colour television in my PhD but I cannot even find your surname in any of the information. Sorry for my complete ignorance. Can you please help?

        Thank yo

        1. Andrew B

          Hi Susan.

          Pleased to have been of assistance.

          More details here. And Good Luck with the PhD! Please let me know how it goes.

    I have a lid from the TV show “Pick a box”. It is not dated but has been signed by Bob and Dolly Dyer, Frank Partridge VC, George Black and Barry Jones. Do you know if there is a TV museum or something similar that might be interested in this piece of history? It seems a shame to have it locked away in cupboard.

    1. Andrew B

      Hi Tatum that would be a most valueable find for any collection. I’m sure there are any number of places that would be interested. Any State Library in a capital city would probably be interested, likewise the National Film and Sound Archive (offices in Canberra/Sydney/Melbourne) or other museums like ACMI in Melbourne or the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.
