Status Partially Found

Dr. Yesterday's Old Time News was a show made by Skylark Productions and released in 1981. The show is about a "time lord" and a group of reporters who use their time machine to "interview" famous figures from the past such as Mozart. At least ten episodes of the show were produced.

Availability

The show is very obscure. In fact, based on the "As Seen on TV" logo on cover art usually reserved for products one could order by phone, it may have only been available through ordering it via calling in and requesting episodes. At any rate, while little footage of the show exists online, there are entries for it on Amazon.

A Time Lord? It's no wonder it got axed, the BBC'd sue them up the @$$ for stealing a copyright Doctor Who idea!!!

I just noticed. "As Seen on TV", like those infomercials... maybe this was the only way it could get a release?

I wonder if this was an educational series of tapes that was sold specifically to schools.

From what I've seen it does look like it was aimed at children and may have been used in schools. The character of "Miss Information" sounds familiar too. There are some "let's watch" style videos of the series up on Youtube. Of course the enjoyment is ruined by a couple of yahoos MSTing everything. Everybody's a comedian.
