Yes, you read that right.
Let me explain.
I am delighted to reveal that the BBC have this episode as an AUDIO recording:- "26-12-70: Presenters: Jimmy Savile & Tony Blackburn (Wiped)
(-) MUNGO JERRY – In The Summertime (-) THE KINKS – Lola (31) FREDA PAYNE – Band Of Gold (video) (-) NORMAN GREENBAUM – Spirit In The Sky (danced to by Pan’s People) (-) CHRISTIE – Yellow River (-) JIMMY RUFFIN – I’ll Say Forever My Love (11) JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE – Voodoo Chile (video) (-) DANA – All Kinds Of Everything (-) HOTLEGS – Neanderthal Man (-) FREE – All Right Now (video) (1) DAVE EDMUNDS – I Hear You Knockin’ ® (-) McGUINNESS FLINT – When I’m Dead And Gone (crowd dancing) (and credits)""
This was confirmed to me by email this week; Forum member Paul Watkins had spotted some anomalies in one of the BBC's databases and I followed it up.
It transpires the BBC have had the audio for this episode since 2007 - which means it was likely a donation to them.
