The Lost Sitcoms presents recreated episodes of sitcom classics. The scripts for these shows still exist but the original recordings have vanished from the archives.

The Lost Sitcoms are Hancock's Half Hour Series 2, Episode 4 The New Neighbour, written by Galton & Simpson, featuring Kevin McNally as Tony Hancock and Robin Sebastian as Kenneth Williams; Steptoe And Son Series 5, Episode 2 A Winter's Tale, also written by Galton & Simpson; and Till Death Us Do Part Series 2, Episode 6 A Woman's Place Is In The Home, written by Johnny Speight.

Each sitcom is recreated with a brand new cast and filmed in a theatrical-style presentation in front of a studio audience.
