Episode 1

Episode one of indiecops has been lost forever.

Like the BBC comedies of old, some of indie cops has been lost forever.

The 1950's BBC archivists wiped the episodes to re-use the tapes. This has made the surviving episodes very rare and exciting

The 2007 indie cops archivists wiped the first episode in a hope that the other episodes would look more rare and exciting than they actually are.

Actually it's stuck on the archive machine at Resonance FM, maybe one day we'll get it back. Maybe not

Yes, the full broadcast first episode will most likely never be heard again, but what does exist, allegedly, is the one of 2 unbroadcast pilots and a script (we actually had a script) for these. they follow more or less the same plot but are considerably worse so perhaps we should wipe those as well, though i doubt history would ever forgive us...

I think the fact that it's called "Do You Remember The First Time?" is rather beautiful as now that's all you can do. how very lo-fi of us all
