After a brief overview of the phenomenon of the missing episode, the specifics of "The Lion"'s recovery were laid out, narrated against a re-enactment of Bruce Grenville's actual moment of discovery.
Peppered into the mix were a few sound bites from people important to missing episodes, such as BBC archivist, Sue Mallden. Frazer Hines, dressed as Jamie, was the only interviewee actually in the Doctor Who-themed studio with Smillie. He got the honour of pressing the button that selected that Wednesday evening's lottery numbers. Just before he pressed the button, Hines made a Dalek-themed pun and hoped that he would be able to help a viewer "exterminate" his or her financial problems.
