New 'Old' Episode of Bric-a-Brac Emerges onto YouTube

In what can only be described as excellent news, Neil Miles (tape archaeologist extraordinaire) has captured a complete episode of Bric-a-Brac and uploaded it to YouTube. Starring the inimitable and highly charming Brian Cant, Bric-a-Brac focused on the wonder of phonetics and ran for two series in 1980 and 1982.

This particular episode, which originally aired on 18th August 1982, was the first episode of the second series - the copy which Neil managed to find is from a 1985 repeat airing. I get the feeling that this episode was previously up on YouTube - I put a screenshot from the episode on Twitter back in 2015 - but it's not been on there for several years. Anyway, a few other episodes have disappeared over the years, so it's excellent to have it back. At present, there are only two complete episodes online (and one nearly complete episode), but hopefully more will emerge one day.
