The Men From The Ministry

Missing Information and Recordings

Request for Information:
It is not possible to spend much time with The Men From The Ministry without being affected by their continuous creation of missing and incorrect information. The Ballymuckie Archives just wouldn't be the same without it. The author would appreciate receiving additions and corrections to the information presented in these pages. Of particular interest are details of the original World Service broadcast dates of the episodes remade for the Transcription Service. Please write to Gary Schajer,
Request for Recordings:
The transcripts in the various pages are incomplete because several recordings are missing from the collection or they are truncated or otherwise damaged. If you have recordings of any of the following episodes, please contact the author. Exchange of recordings from The Men From The Ministry or other contemporary BBC programmes is welcomed.
