Do you mean the edition with The Seekers and Roy Orbison? I think the date is slightly wrong. I don't have the exact tx to hand but it's early March '66 (?)
If so, then - yes - the show exists in full. And in colour on 525 line NTSC VT. Taped as part of a batch by ATV as an experiment, I saw part of this at the NFT when it was uncovered in the '90s. I think The Seekers do The Carnival Is Over, if I recall rightly. I'm sure someone here will be able to give exact details...

Yes, i'd love to get hold of this one myself too. I only saw a 10 minute segment on a big screen but i'd like to see it all. I wish someone like Network Video would consider such a DVD release. You get a real flavour of the period when watching this sort of thing as a complete entity too.

more 60s colour, and from such an unusual source there had been other colour tv in the uk before though in universities during the late 50s and 60s especialy medical , they were used for training for example when operations were televised so that a large auience could watch a procedure and maintain sterile conditions inside the operating theatre, it used 525 ntsc equipment and worked quite well. the only problem seemed to be with fainting cameramen
there were other areas of acedemia using similar systems, another forgotten area of tv history
