I'm a little taken aback. I haven't really done much major searching in the BBC Motion Gallery up until this afternoon. I'd done more in ITN Source with little luck. There are also quite a few TOTP promos and record company promos in there too, some known about some not. I will be trying to do a full list of things in the next few weeks, but there is sososo much to do.

The clip comes in at 22.49 (Fades in) to 23.10 on the film, and then cuts in at 23.18 to 23.32. It's 100% definitely TOTP. The background is the circular lights thing they had in 1966. The clip focuses mainly on Jagger. Band is Wyman, Jagger, Richards, Jones (virtually unseen) left to right, and Watts in front, below band level with audience. Song (clip) comes in towards the end of the first verse, and eventually finishes on 'million dollar's tax'. Jagger's miming is a bit suspect, especially early on. It is a straight mime. Band all have jackets on, Jagger's and Watts a slighter lighter shade than the others. Crowd are a typical TOTP crowd from '66. During the bit of the doc where the clip is not shown between 23.10-23.18, cuts back to subject of doc. Song continues to play but she talks over it at that point, but not during most of clip.
This is a great find Ray. I really wish we had the full performance but I suppose just over 30 seconds is better than nothing and great to see. Worse still is the fact it's a clip means we're highly unlikely to ever see it getting aired again...

I don't think ANY Stones fans knew about this existing... including Bob Pratt since I'm sure had he known of it's existence he'd had made a copy for one of his tapes given he was a Stones fan.
Would indeed be great to see it - 1964, 1966 and 1972 seem to be the blackest holes in TOTP history so any footage - no matter how fragmented - from those years is always welcome.
Up until 3 or 4 years ago all there seemed to be officially we knew of from 1966 was the silent Cliff insert, the Stevie Wonder VT and a Walker Brothers fragment. YouTube and outside sources have given us The Hollies, Manfred Mann and The Kinks. The BBC finally unearthed the complete Walker Brothers performance and now, we have this Rolling Stones fragment.
One can't help but wonder what else might be sitting around out there...

Isn't it also interesting how we do have a reasonable amount of TOTP performances of The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Manfred Mann, The Hollies and Cilla Black compared to most other acts? One could also say Herman's Hermits and Sandie Shaw. It suggests to me the biggest acts were being copied and archived in some form and though one can never raise ones hopes too far, it does make one believe there HAS to be more TOTP clips of them out there...
