For those who have been lucky enough to see anything from this edition, what is the quality like of the existing tape?
Is any part of it good enough to be used on TOTP2? I seem to remember that there was an issue with the colour signal, but was wondering if this was the case, whether individual performaces could be shown in B/W which would be better than nothing at all, as there are some interesting sounding performances which I wouldn't mind seeing from it.

The quality is master tape standard but almost b/w (same quality as 16/11/72 except there is also a slight tint. Some colours show up more than others). I saw it at the NFT a few years back. It's a notable edition for The Move appearance. Wasn't something from it shown on TOTP2 a while back? I thought someone here made reference it it a while back.

Master Tape standard? That is good news. As such, there should be no problem showing clips on TOTP2 then (not aware of anything being shown from it previously, although someone may have more concrete info to the contrary).
I've also read somewhere that the tape is incomplete. Looking at the Database, all performances are listed as existing so what is exactly missing?
