Col,

That is sadly true - a lot of the old material no longer exists. No commercial interest was deemed, to store the tapes and films was very expensive at the time, so the videos were wiped and films junked...

If one liked the Hartnell and Troughon eras, they would lose out...

But as Matt Smith enjoyed what Troughton episodes exists, that says a lot about those early eras... which only makes it worse that they were dumped. "The Dalek Masterplan", "The Power of the Daleks", "The Web of Fear", "Marco Polo", "Fury From the Deep", and rather a lot of others are effectively toast.

The Mugabe rumor is interesting if true.
