Just came across this www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsC0T0pKwfw I know there's a lot of discussion about the BBC music archive but what gems do ITV and regions hold that's worth seeing again. Couldn't they also put together a show of music clips from their archives?

I agree too... we're always going on about the BBC but what have ITV done with their pop archives? There's tons of it just sitting there doing absolutely nothing and given the current state of British TV, I sadly think it's all doomed to stay there save for brief clips in documentaries with talking heads gabbling on top...
Granada plus was a great channel they showed lots of classic old pop shows.marc bolan tv series. harry worth, supersonic, shang alang and many others.Luckily i recorded most of these shows.by the way is my name is harry worth are any missing?or heres harry as i have these on dvd given to me?

As much as I love The Professionals and The Sweeney I would love to see some of the ITV music archive being repeated on ITV4.
I buy Record Collector magazine every month and notice that most months in their back page section they usually mention some ITV music performance that still exists in the archive but that hasn't been shown since the 70's/80's. Would be great to see some of them.
I loved the Supersonic repeats on Granada Plus but sadly I didnt manage to record many of them on VHS, surely digging those episodes out again on a weekly basis a la TOTP76/77 wouldn't be hard to do and give more exposure to ITV4 in the way BBC4 has had over the past year.
