This show from October 1984 was the last regular episode of Pop Quiz to be hosted by Mike Read. It featured only 6 clips that could be considered "archive" (i.e. more than 7 years since their original broadcast):
S04E12 Round 1
Paul McCartney - Pipes of Peace (promo, 1983)
Junior - Mama Used to Say (promo, 1982)
Paul Young - Come Back and Stay (promo, 1983)
JoBoxers - Boxerbeat (promo, 1983)
Tracey Ullman - They Don't Know (promo, 1983)
ABC - Poison Arrow (promo, 1982)
Richard Thompson - Tear Stained Letter (live, 1983)
Pete Townshend - Uniforms (promo, 1982)
This next one makes me laugh. Mike Read to Phil Collins: "Cap'n Phil, for you a good ol' clip of Martha & the Vandellas singing `He's a Walking Miracle`." It certainly would've been a miracle as they never recorded that song!Watch this mistake on YouTube
Limmie & the Family Cooking - A Walking Miracle (TOTP, 1974)
Mike refers to this next clip as "Song of a Baker Man" ;D
The Small Faces - Song of a Baker (Colour Me Pop, 1968)
Otis Redding - Respect (Soul To Soul, 1971)
Cat Stevens - Changes IV (live, 1971)
Rolling Stones - Going to a Go-Go (live, 1981)
I would guess the old film footage used for this song is totally unrelated
Ronnie Wood - Seven Days (1979)
Rod Stewart and the Faces - You Wear It Well (TOTP, 1972)
Will Powers - Kissing With Confidence (promo, 1983)
I can't see Health & Safety allowing this kind of stunt anymore!
Todd Rundgren - Utopia (1974)
Meatloaf - Bat Out of Hell (promo, 1977)
End Credits The Who - Join Together (promo, 1972) Although there's no screenshot for this, you do get to hear Mike introduce it before the tape cuts out. "That's it for the current series. We'll be back with a new series next year and also a Christmas Special. We'll leave you tonight with a great performance from the early seventies of the Who, down at Shepperton Studios, singing 'Join Together'."
Unfortunately, it was over 10 years before the next series!

I'm missing the 1984 Xmas special of Pop Quiz (someone must have recorded it, surely?) but here's the info on another special that aired just a few days later. It was the only edition of Pop Quiz to have TEN players - all five members of Duran Duran vs. all five members of Spandau Ballet.
S04E14 Round 1 was guess the intro.
Round 2 was a "Winter" compilation using b&w archive footage as usual.
Round 3 was the lyric round.
Round 4 was spot the star and name the backwards music.
Round 5 was the video round (at last!) 3 recent videos overdubbed with different music. Name the titles and artists.
Thompson Twins - You Take Me Up (promo, 1984)
Elton John - Passengers (promo, 1984)
Madness - Our House (promo, 1982)
Herbie Hancock - Rockit (promo, 1983)
Culture Club - The War Song (promo, 1984)
Yazoo - Don't Go (promo, 1982)
Round 6 was the individual round.
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense (live, 1984)
Dire Straits - Tunnel of Love (live, 1983)
Genesis - Ripples (live, 1976)
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (The Song Remains the Same, 1976)
Grace Jones - Do or Die (live, 1978?) I've no idea where this footage comes from. There are several different videos for this song on YouTube but not this one...
Queen - Jailhouse Rock (OGWT, 1975) Mike introduced this clip as Queen, Christmas 1974, but we all know it's Hammersmith Odeon, Xmas Eve, 1975
The Kinks - Waterloo Sunset (Christmas Concert, 1977) My favourite version of this song. It was great to see it in full in the recent Kinks at the BBC compilation.
Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road (No Nukes, 1980)
The Clash - Bankrobber (promo, 1980)
Generation X - King Rocker (TOTP, 1979)
Round 6 was the quick-fire round.
Cilla Black and Marc Bolan - Life's a Gas (Cilla Black Show, 1973)
That's it for 1984! Pop Quiz wasn't to be seen again until its return in 1994...
There are still plenty of episodes from the first four series of Pop Quiz that don't appear to be available anywhere! I'm still looking for:
Series 1 - Episodes 3, 5, 6, 8 plus a complete version of Episode 7 Series 2 - Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12 plus a complete version of Episode 11 Series 3 - Episodes 1, 3, 6, 8, 9, 11 Series 4 - Episodes 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13
Can you help?
Either post details below, or if you prefer to remain anonymous, you can PM me here, or contact me via Facebook or Twitter.
Here you go, Simon (can't do screen grabs though, sorry) :
S04E13. 24 Dec 1984
Fiddlers Dram – “Day Trip To Bangor” (TOTP) The Police – “Walking On The Moon” (video) Paul McCartney – “Wonderful Christmastime” (video) Michael Jackson – “Rockin’ Robin” (TOTP) The Osmonds – “Crazy Horses” (TOTP) Elton John – “Crocodile Rock” (live clip) The Beatles – “All You Need Is Love” / “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” (Our World / film clips) Chaka Khan – “I’m Every Woman” (video) David Bowie – “Five Years” (OGWT) Rolling Stones – “Jumping Jack Flash” (video) Bob Seger – “Still The Same” (live clip) Pink Floyd – “Astronomy Dominie” (Look Of The Week) Not The Nine O’clock News – “Nice Video, Shame About The Song”
I'm afraid despite suggesting this thread, I cannot add anymore. Neil, can you confirm what 'Crazy Horses' clip by The Osmonds is used in S04E13. Is it the bog standard version that is usually shown or the rarer black Elvis outfits with chokers?
Just so I'm on the same page with you here, you're not interested in the shows themselves but just the archival clips?
For the purposes of this thread we're just interested in a list of the clips used, although I know a few people who also collect the shows as well.
OK. The end of the other Pop Quiz is Se04ep08. " Feel Fine" is the Intertel clip from a video source, with an added red tinge.
Here are the clips from the 2-10-84 show.
-T Rex "Get It On" (TOTP, w/Elton John) -Curtis Mayfield "Move On Up" (live, a more contemporary performance than 1971) -Slade "Cos I Luv You" (TOTP) -Specials "Ghost Town" (promo) -Human League "Don't You Want Me" (promo) -Soft Cell "Tainted Love" (TOTP) -Billy Joel "Allentown" (promo) -Hall & Oates "One And One (promo) -Family "?" (TOTP) (sorry, don't know the song. Lead singer is wearing a T-shirt with "anyway" on it) -Culture Club "Church Of The Poisoned Mind" (live) -Iggy Pop "?" (again, sorry, don't know It's OGWT) -Joe Cocker "The Letter" (live, studio, can't identify what though) -Robert Palmer & Elke Brookes "Everybody's Talking" (live, on film, played over end credits)
It's the 27/08/70 performance of 'the Weaver's Answer', repeated on 10/09/70. The most interesting thing about this one is that it appears on one database as existing, basically privately. Whereas, that certainly wasn't the case for the excerpt that was shown in Pop Quiz.
The youtube clip mentioned on Simon's last post:- www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGF2e5JFdRI - is In My Own Time from 01/07/71, repeated 22/07/71. The performace of that exists at the BBC in full and was shown on Prog Rock at the BBC.
I shall email the Beeb abou the Pop Quiz edition with 'the Weaver's Answer' on it.

Thank you Laurence. I WON'T mail them now! Good to know it exists in which case (Bob must've liked Family, as another of their clips is a Bob Pratt one: - www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9qWZURH5Z8) - which is the song Dim from How Late It Is.
