    Yes, Monkhouse was such a huge hoarder of recording TV programmes - I think that he certainly recorded every TV show that he appeared in during the 1980s and 1990s and had several TVs and VCRs around his home.

    I also heard that Reg Varney of On the Buses fame used to do similar things in the 1970s - he recorded an LWT sitcom called On the 'Gate which was from 1976.
    Dick Emery also was also another early home video taper. His collection contains early performances by Queen and Lenny Henry that had their master tapes wiped.

    The Friday Rock Show with Tommy Vance? Wasn't that one of the few programmes from Radio 1 that was on FM pre-1989? In the 88-91 Radio 2 frequencies.

    When I had my first cassette recorder in 1972 I use to tape films off the tv.The first films I recorded were the Morecambe And Wise film That Riviera Touch and The Karate Killers one of The Man From U.N.C.L.E spin- off films cobbled together from two part episodes from the series.
    I also loved taping radio shows especially the Radio 2 comedy sketch show Hello Cheeky and repeats of The Goons and Hancock's Half Hour

    You wouldn't still have any TOTP by any chance? Some of those are really hard to find...

    I've never done it, but I've heard of others doing so.

    Many episodes of Doctor Who are currently missing from the archives, but there were several fans who made audio recordings. All the missing episodes have the audio available thanks to these fans. Some of them connected the tape device directly to the TV audio output, so they recorded it without capturing external sounds.

    I tried this once or twice, but usually someone wanted to watch TV at the same time.

    My brother used to record Spitting Image onto tape so he could listen later on.

    Come to think of Python solo projects, you didn't by any chance record "Ripping Yarns"?

    There's this scene that was cut for time for a repeat and when they wanted to reinstate it, the audio was missing. It's even on youtube. But someone at home might have captured the sound when it first went out...

    I think it's great recording YT clips of old TV shows onto tape - just like 30 years ago!
