Removal of pre-2007 episodes of 'The Archers'
What was the point of removing the pre-2007 episodes of The Archers?
Some knowledgeable contributor spent enormous effort to add that information (after I added the series and basic information). And now it's gone.
Yes, it's true "The Archers" did not become a podcast until 2007. What of it?
Nothing about the series changed in 2007. It simply added one more way for its fans to listen to it.
When it comes to data, IMDb's bias has always been toward inclusion, not exclusion. Why should it be different here?
No one is served by the destruction of this data. One or two of the tunnel-visioned may be happier. No user or contributor will love knowing a paper-thin technicality keeps pre-2007 data about this series out of the database.
Years and years worth of data now gone, to no purpose.
Please restore the information. It's all upside, no downside. No one but a random hair-splitter will complain, and everyone else will be happier.
