Here we go again
Art attact is safe strangely that also ended up in the hands of Disney but by another route. TVS: WHO OWNS IT:
In Autumn 1992, a number of American companies were interested in acquiring the company, from the likes of TCW Capital, International Family Entertainment Inc. (IFE) and Lorne Michaels. IFE originally made an bid worth £38.2M and received backing from a number of key shareholders for the bid to be accepted. A small number of shareholders, including Julian Tregar, rejected the offer from IFE. In November, TCW Capital made a counter bid, but pulled out a few weeks later after reviewing the accounts of TVS. IFE increased its offer to £45.3M, but continued to be opposed by Julian Tregar who blocked the deal on technical grounds, as they alleged that the offer was too low. IFE finally revised and increased the offer to appease the remaining shareholders, on 23 January 1993 IFC offer of £56.5M was finally accepted, with the deal being completed on 1 February 1993. In September 1993, IFE launched a UK version of The Family Channel based at The Maidstone Studios and using some elements of the TVS programme archive. Flextech were a partner in the venture, taking a 39% stake in the business.
In 1996, IFE sold its remaining 61% share to Flextech, giving them full ownership of the venture, and subsequently in February 1997 Flextech rebranded the channel to Challenge TV, focusing mainly on game shows. IFE was sold to Fox Kids Worldwide, which in turn was acquired by Disney in 2001.
As a result, most of the TVS archive is controlled by Disney, although much of it is understood to be largely inaccessible due to the paperwork detailing programme contributors, rights agreements, etc., having been lost in the intervening years. In 2006, the name "Television South Ltd", "TVS" and the colour logo device were transferred and re-registered at the Trademarks Office to lighting cameraman Keith Jacobsen, and TVS began trading as an independent production company with no links to the previous company. The new TVS company were based in offices at The Maidstone Studios, which had been built by the original TVS company. TVS Television Productions Ltd ceased trading  on 9 March 2012.
Its that paper work that caused all the trouble, it was believe the tapes were in Warehouse in Kent, before heading to Leeds before being shipped of to the USA.
Fraggle Rock is believe wiped. One has to wonder why Henson never got proper copies of all the UK opt outs. shame on them. Biggest Q should be why didnt Flextech buy the UK archive aswell.
Is the next post dreaded?
