A recovered edition of 1960s teen culture show A Whole Scene Going contains a sneak-peak into the making of big-screen Doctor Who adventure Daleks' Invasion of Earth: 2150 A.D. The brief clip shows Peter Cushing preparing to battle arch foe the Daleks during the making of an early big-screen adaptation of the long-running sci-fi series. The black and white footage, taken on the set of cult sixties film Daleks' Invasion of Earth: 2150 A.D., also captures director Gordon Flemyng — father of film star Jason — behind camera as he talks with stunt-men and plans out the movie's climatic final scenes.

The recovered edition, from March '66, captures Flemyng at Shepperton Studios while directing an action-packed finale involving Horror icon Cushing and an army of Robomen thwarting a Dalek plan to drop a giant bomb into the Earth's core. Interspersed with the footage is an interview with Flemyng — who died in 1995, aged 61 — revealing that he preferred making “entertainment pictures” as opposed to more high-brow films, but “didn't take them any less seriously”.

The material is the first to be uncovered documenting the 1966 film and forms part of a 'lost' TV show found recently in the possession of a collector living in Wales. A Whole Scene Going was a short-lived TV teen culture show hosted by Wendy Varnels and Barry Fantoni.

Classic TV organisation Kaleidoscope, which recovered the unique 16mm film print in conjunction with the Tim Disney Archive, said the find will “delight” Doctor Who and vintage music fans alike. They are currently in the process of returning a digital copy to the BBC Archive.

Eager fans will get the chance to see the recovered footage for the first time in more than four decades at Kaleidoscope's next screening event, taking place in Stourbridge, West Midlands, on Saturday, June 9.
