This was recorded at the time of the original broadcast. I think I've got the date right from looking about, but do correct me if I'm wrong. If the quality is lower than my other '87 rips it's partly due to the broadcast, and they apologize for it at the start of the show. It's still okay for a 21 year old VHS, but obviously not great.
The only similar vids I have are two episodes of Top of the Pops that were broadcast just before and after this show. Both are also uploaded here.

THE ROXY 1987-1988
ITV's disastrous mid-80s riposte to Top of the Pops was also filmed in Newcastle. The format owed a lot to its BBC rival, featuring music videos, live performances and a rundown of the chart. Presented by former BBC Radio 1 DJ David "Kid" Jensen, the programme had a run of bad luck. In many regions, it suffered from being scheduled against EastEnders. Then, at the end of 1987, an industrial dispute at ITV made live performances impossible. The programme achieved a certain amount of notoriety when Vanessa Paradis sang Joe Le Taxi in a see-through costume, but it was cancelled after only eight months.
