This thread by forum members only began on 7 May and yet in that short space of time, this is what has happened...
It began with 100 (101 if we include Liverpool A Go Go) Completely Missing Pop Shows and Series, with nothing believed to exist?
Here is how we have come down to 82 from the 100, as something from 12 (13 if we include Liverpool A Go Go) has been posted about..

Re. Boy Meets Girls it's the January 16th and 23rd 1960 episodes that were released in full according to the sleeve notes and the cast matches TV listings. Also the cd contains one track from one of Johnny Cash's appearances (19 sept 59 or oct 10 1959), one by Ronnie Hawkins (30 jan 1960 or 6 Feb 1960). In addition surviving Gene Vincent extracts from the 12th and 19th December and 20th and 27th February 1960 are identified on the Spent Brothers excellent Gene Vincent website. Tracks by Eddie Cochran from Feb 20 and 27th also circulate. I believe I have off airs of two, maybe 3 complete shows which may be 19 December 1959 (Marty wishes everyone merry xmas) and large chunks of if not complete Feb 20th and 27th. I am trying to work that out. The cd has multiple defects which I'm trying to fix. I am trying to contact "a party" who might be able to fill us in on how much was preserved by one of the TV engineers which is how the two January shows and Cash / Hawkins tracks survived in such good quality. The Rockstar Release was described as Volume 1. It looks like Volume 2 is not happening which is a tremendous shame.
You can also take your total missing count down to 81 William because I have a partial off air (maybe complete??) of the 1964 Billy Fury Show. I am looking for it. It's round here somewhere, honest ! The sound quality is not at all good, I can tell you that much. I will try and post a track listing when it re-appears.

If you have time (and this is a grovel, because i know it will take more than a couple of minutes....) is it possible to list the 80 shows still missing in alphabetic order, so i can concentrate on them.
I'm aiming to find something from 8 of them, I'll be happy with that.
If you can do this William, I will be extremely grateful.
The eagle-eyed amongst us will have spotted that the name of this thread has changed from 98 to 97
This is because of
Steeleye Span and Roger Woodward 19 August 1973 Tv Brain says (missing)
Here is the BBC Genome entry for this show
Steeleye Span and Roger Woodward BBC2 Wednesday 19 August 1973 19 50 - 20.10 pm, (a 20 minute programme) Two contrasting musical performances from last year's Full House. First, the group who perform traditional folk music - even medieval plainchant - with modern techniques and instrumentation. Steeleye Span are Maddy Prior, Tim Hart, Peter Knight, Bob Johnson and Rick Kemp, they sing Spotted Cow and One Misty Moisty Morning. Then Roger Woodward, the 29-year-old-Australian who studied in Warsaw and has now firmly established his reputation as a concert pianist in this country, plays Chopin Allegro de Concert, Op 46. Director Vernon Lawrence
Vernon Lawrence was also the Director of Full House BBC2 which ran for 14 episodes from 14 October 1972 - 7 April 1973. Steeleye Span appeared on episode Saturday 13 January 1973 at 10.45 pm in that episode.
TV Brain says Full House 1972 exists complete in the archives. Although it has another Full House which ran 1971 and 1972, the last episode listed as August 1972 as all Missing.
Since the Full House which these Two contrasting musical performances above, started on 14 October 1972, the musical content for the 19 August 1973 Steeleye Span and Roger Woodward exists in the archives, as part of the Full House series.
So should the status of Steeleye Span and Roger Woodward 19 August 1973 change on TV Brain from Missing, to either Existing or One or more sequences exist, but the complete programme is lost, with only perhaps the opening and closing credits for this 20 minute programme missing, with the Two contrasting musical performances existing?
I have confirmed this referring to BBC information.

The series featured jazz singer Sheila Southern and the drummer and bandleader Eric Delaney. It was produced by Bryan Izzard for Border Television.
The following is from the programme description for "Beauty and the Beat" in the Tyne Tees listing magazine, “The Viewer,” (20 December 1964 – 02 January 1965)
Two stars with a single thought, to bring you 30 minutes of top entertainment with music, song and laughter.
The same issue also had a short article about the show.
Sounding the beat
Whatever the title suggests, Beauty and the Beat is neither a panto nor a fairy story – even though Eric Delaney - who provides the “beat” admits to being the “noisy giant” guarding over the musical fortunes of the “beauty”, Sheila Southern.
The popular couple, plus the Delaney Band, help to fill a show packed with tunes old and new.
It’s a new-style Delaney who comes up in this show – one ready to take up comedy spots and join Sheila in some of the numbers as well as providing a backing for her own songs. Birth of the Beat ... (Southern TV) 21/07/64 10.37 - 11.22 pm not listed on TV Brain Kaleidoscope

It was broadcast on 23 October 1968 and it featured Will Gaines, Peter Sarstedt, Checker Wheel, and Rondart and Jean. It was broadcast on 23 October 1968 and it featured Will Gaines, Peter Sarstedt, Checker Wheel, and Rondart and Jean. Here’s some information about “Hats Off”. It was one of the first programmes made by Granada’s Children’s Department and it was broadcast nationally from 31 July 1968 to 23 October 1968. Each week, Jimmy Thompson presented a line-up consisting of pop stars and variety acts. The series was produced by Rod Taylor and directed by David Warwick.
Here’s a review of one of the episodes from “The Stage” (22 August 1968)
Packed live acts into 20 minutes by James Towler
Hats Off, Granada, August 14. If you want to see true Vaudeville on television, you have to look to the children’s shows. It comes in a variety of guises and isn’t always ideally presented. But never mind, it can at least be enjoyed if only to bring back the palmy days of post-war variety. Hats Off has the advantage of packing five acts into just over twenty minutes. If that isn’t television’s answer to quick-fire variety I’d like to know what is. It also has the added advantage that even if one doesn’t particularly like the act one hasn’t to suffer for too long.
Artists involved in this particular edition were Susan Maughan, Hope and Keen, Albert Modley, Vince Hill and The Three Monarchs. Compere Jimmy Thompson had a comparatively easy passage as there were no party games to organise. Even so, I detected some discerning critics in the youthful studio audience, I’m sure I heard two shouts of No when the ubiquitous Mr Thompson asked if they would like Miss Maughan to sing. Even Albert Modley’s reference to his square pig brought a youthful Just like you retort or is it just my set? A passable if uneventful tea time offering which should keep the kids quiet and allow Dad to keep one eye on the programme and the other on his evening paper.

Apparently, a pilot was filmed at the Half Moon Pub in Putney, South London, but it was never transmitted. The pilot also featured Bob Godfrey (possibly as the host).
The 6-part series was introduced by Kenny Everett. The producer was Bryan Izzard. Most sources state that the series was also filmed at the Half Moon Pub. However, I’ve looked at listings in relevant issues of the TV Times, and I’m certain that it was recorded at the LWT studios. It’s likely that the ambience of the pub was recreated in the studio.
The series was shown on various dates in the LWT, Tyne Tees, Border, Anglia, Grampian, and Ulster regions. Therefore, it’s possible that a few copies were made of each episode. The final transmission of the series was by Ulster TV in March 1971.
Some of the songs from the series, such as “A Nightingale Sang in Leicester Square”, were featured on an album also called “Making Whoopee”, which was released in 1971. Me and My Shadows...(ATV) 13/04/60 14 mins long

Question: Also a programme called Music Mine was tx on London ITV at 8.10 a.m. on Tuesday December 27th 1966 - I don't have my TV Times handy but maybe someone can confirm whether this was a broadcast of an edition of the Grampian TV show. This broadcast was also 15 mins so might have been one of the Grampian episodes already listed above ?
Answer: According to the TV Times, Rediffusion in London showed the following programme at 8:10 a.m. on 27 December 1966:
Music Mine With Eleanor Leith Directed by Mike Bevan Grampian Production
As far as I know, this was the only time an episode of the series was shown outside the Grampian area.
I imagine that the songs performed in that episode related to Christmas and the New Year.

David Mahlowe looks at the world of ‘with it’ people. Rave Fashions! Rave Dances! Rave Language! The ‘in’ side turned out. Designed by Patrick Downing. Edited by Roy Bottomley and Tom Brennard. Directed by Geoff Ramsey
Rave ABC 29/6-27/7/63
It was presented by the actor Tony Tanner. The series was a “zany” and “way out” comedy revue in which Tanner appeared in satirical sketches with Sheila Falconer. The series focused on “fads, fancies and fashions” (including music). Each episode also included a serious item.
The Springfields appeared on the show on 13 July 1963, but I don’t have any details of other musical guests.
The series was directed by Helen Standage. Scripts were by Mike Hodges and Ken Hoare. Mike Hodges later became an acclaimed film director.
Here’s an extract from a review of the first edition of “Rave!” published in “The Stage” (04 July 1963)
This first show of ’63 trends moved from the inevitable dance spot, Twist to Bossa Nova, with Sheila partnered by Johnny Greenland, to instruction on the care of aspidistras, a Jessie Matthews number Tony’s In Town, a snatch of film of Divorce Italian Style, to Tom Swifties, and a visit to a Hot Gospel Club. Sandwiched somewhere in between was one incongruously serious item on acupuncture.
