Just watched Guy Garvey:From the Vaults on Sky Arts. Looking at a year in music from the ITV vaults including some not seen on TV since it went out or ever. Just watched 1982 and now watching 1979 on catch up.

Quite familiar with BBC archive because of their programs, particularly on BBC4 but not so much with ITV, particularly with all the regional variations. 1979 even has The Clash playing live on TV 😮.

Sign me up! About time we had an opinionated News Channel on these shores that isn't swinging to the Left.

Radio do try to have a mix, LBC have have on one side James O'Brein then they've had Rees-Mogg, Farage and Ian Dale. TalkRadio are the same, A varied mix but TV can be disappointing in terms of their content. It will be interesting to see the line up when they launch.

1979.
The best year ever for music. 👍

I went to some great gigs that year.

Rosy mentioned the Clash in a previous post,indeed it was rare to see them on TV because of their reluctance to mime on TOTP.
Unusual for any up & coming band(or established)to get decent live exposure on TV back then.

The exception,being invited onto Something Else a short series on BBC2,OGWT or Granada’s So it Goes,which was networked to the other regions but was on at around midnight just before closedown iirc.

Rock goes to College another BB2 programme from 1977/78 also was a decent showcase...Unless you were The Stranglers 😁
