Lost Episodes in Zimbabwe

The Sun are today reporting that many lost episodes of Doctor Who featuring William Hartnell as the 1st Doctor are supposedly in the possession of President Mugabe of Zimbabwe. The BBC had removed lots of episodes of Doctor Who from their archives so that they could make room for new shows. The country Zimbabwe had previously obtained the first ever series of Doctor Who when it was a British colony known as Rhodesia at that time. It seems that President Mugabe currently has no plans to let the BBC go into Zimbabwe to get the tapes due to certain events that have happened in the country over the past years.
