It was made for BSB by Noel Gay TV originally. Those C4 screenings were repeats of that material. Noel Gay TV disposed of most of the material they made for BSB and hardly anything exists now. There was a plea made here a while ago for missing material in the form of off-airs / material held by production personnel etc. Some has since been uncovered on SVHS / VHS formats although the masters seem to be long gone. Yes, it's shocking that this happened in the '90s. The saddest loss of the BSB material for me was I Love Keith Allen, of which quite a few off-airs do survive. Take a look at the thread on Kal / Raiders recoveries in the last year or two for more details on the BSB material.

No. It was an original programme created for BSB. No clips. A kind of music and alternate variety show. Jools Holland presented it and there were live groups, comedians etc. as guests (e.g. Nick Lowe was one of the guests, I seem to recall).

It was a live show presented by Jools Holland.
I don't remember very many people who were on it but the one part I have on VHS is Squeeze performing with Jools - including a cover of 'Cold Turkey' the John Lennon song which was cut from the Channel 4 repeat!
A quick google reveals other acts included Midge Ure, Sam Brown Ben E,.King, Jack Dee, Bill Hicks, so its fair to say there were pretty big names on it and I'm anazed its been wiped!
