Sir: So the National Film Theatre has promised an amnesty to people who may have illegally recorded classic lost TV programmes (report, 8 October). I hope the NFT isn't holding its breath waiting for all those recalcitrant hoarders and collectors to start queuing at its doors, eager to hand over their treasures to the nation.

I cannot help thinking that those who valued these programmes at a time when the BBC clearly did not and who now need to be coaxed to share their spoils should be offered not an amnesty, but a reward.
