This is a Super VHS Rip from a 20 year old tape - however the quality is pretty good considering.
If you are unfamiliar with this show, it was broadcast only once - on New Year's Eve - 31/12/1989.
It gets a mention on the BFI website - [url]http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/title/442242[/url]
All in all, a pretty decent time capsule of all the good (and not so good!) music from one of the most influential decades thus far - musically anyway. There are no complete performances, but you see enough....particularly of Milli Vanilli in the 'Most Complaints Received' section.
Of particular interest are the Changes sections, featuring Wham and Spandau Ballet - to name but two.
I hope you enjoy - there are a few dropouts, but I've tried to keep these to a minimum by stopping the transfer, adjusting the tracking, and resuming - though all this is edited out of course.

This is attempt number two to seed this file - it seems that the title I had used before did not meet with universal approval - but this time, I would ask that if there is a silly mistake, please correct it and let me know - thank you
One last thing - the last few minutes of the tape are damaged, so there is a small amount of the show missing - but it shouldn't affect your enjoyment (I hope!).
If someone else has this part, let me know and maybe I can piece it together.
EDIT - title changed to VHS Rip after advice
