This is a new version of the Top Of The Pops episode that was uploaded a few days ago. It is slightly longer and contains less picture drop out.
This was approved by both the original capper Daviedye and the box Staff.
My thanks goes to Davie for actually having the foresight to upload this classic John Peel hosted episode and I'll include his original information here:-
This Top of the Pops was introduced by John Peel. This was taken from a repeat on UK Gold TV channel.The 18th Of November 1982 was when this was on BBC. (Like all UK gold recordings it may be edited from the original broadcast)

The picture is not perfect but good enough to enjoy. This was not recorded from a digital source.
