Time Machine says "you don't have permission" - why?

I have just tried recovering a document from a back-up disk using Time Machine, but couldn't do it because TM says I don't have permission to access "the file". (I do - I am the only user of the machine.) So I tried some tests:
I tried another document (from the documents folder) and got the same result.
I tried retrieving a movie (from the movies folder) and got it, but had to give the admin password.
I tried getting a photo (from the photos folder) and it worked perfectly.
Can anyone tell me what's going on here, and how to fix it?
(MBP running 10.6.3)
