Continuing with my research on the 1984 series, these episodes were catalogued by the Beeb, as follows:
S04E02 Aretha FRANKLIN sings "I Say A Little Prayer" (0.00-0.49, 6m33s in) ex Cliff Richard Show 1970 Pink Floyd sing "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" (0.00-0.50, 8m10s in) Splint Enz "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" video (16.37-17.29) Marvin GAYE "Sexual Healing" video (18.03-18.46) Stealers Wheel sing "Stuck in the Middle With You" (19.09-19.55) ex TOTP 30/05/73 Q Tips featuring Paul YOUNG sing "Get 'Em Up, Joe" (20.30-21.17) ex Rock Goes To College Jan 1981 Psychadelic Furs "Dumb Waiter" video (22.12-22.44) Stanley CLARK performs (23.09-23.52) ex OGWT 26.6.81 (c) The Kinks sing "You Really Got Me Going" (0.00-2.06, credits over from 1.33, 27m54s in) ex Beat Room 5.10.64
Interestingly, this episode contains 46 seconds of the "missing" Gerry Rafferty performance, although it's dated 30/05/73, instead of 18/05/73. Did the show on 01/06/73 use a different performance?
S04E03 Genesis perform "Illegal Alien" (2.10) Adam & Ants perform "Puss 'n' Boots" (2.38-2.57) Smoky ROBINSON & Miracles perform "Going to a Go Go" (4.22-4.38) Lionel RICHIE performs "All Night Long" (4.38-4.57) The Tourists perform "I Only Want To Be With You" (15.32) Alex Harvey Band perform "Boston Tea Party" (16.42) Chic perform "Le Freak" (17.38) Diana ROSS performs "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" (18.55) Simple Minds perform "Waterfront" (20.10) Nils LOFGREN performs "Across The Tracks" (21.53) David BOWIE performs "Space Oddity" (26.39-29.45)
Unfortunately, no source info was included for this show so we can only guess where these clips came from.
S04E04 Bob MARLEY "Get Up Stand Up" (c) Island Records (14.37-15.21) Elvis COSTELLO on his first "Top of the Pops" (c) Multi Media Records (15.44-16.38) Daryl HALL & John OATES video "Family Man" (c) RCA Records (17.01-18.17) Elton JOHN sings "Daniel" ex TOTP 25.1.73 (18.53-19.56) Patti SMITH sings "Because the Night" on OGWT 4.4.78 (20.27-21.28) Police (c) A&M Records (22.06-23.02)
Not many clips featured in this episode, or perhaps they weren't catalogued. In fact, they didn't even mention the titles of the Costello or Police tracks. No mention of any performance over the end credits, either! Does anyone have this episode to expand on the content, or, indeed, any of the above episodes to confirm these clips?
Sorry I've no idea how to do screen grabs, but here are the details of 9/6/84 and 16/6/84 :
S04E03 Genesis – “Illegal Alien” (video) Adam Ant – “Puss ‘N Boots” (video) Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – “Going To A Go-Go” (?) Lionel Richie – “All Night Long” (video) Tourists – “I Only Want To Be With You” (TOTP) Sensational Alex Harvey Band – “Boston Tea Party” (TOTP) Chic – “Le Freak” (US TV clip?) Simple Minds -“Waterfront” (video) Diana Ross – “Why Do Fools Fall In Love?” (video) Nils Lofgren – “Across The Tracks” (video) David Bowie – “Space Oddity” (original video from “Love You Til Tuesday”)
S04E04 Bob Marley & The Wailers – “Get Up Stand Up” (live clip) Elvis Costello – “Red Shoes” (TOTP) Daryl Hall & John Oates – “Family Man” (video) Elton John – “Daniel” (TOTP) Patti Smith Group – “Because The Night” (OGWT) The Police – “King Of Pain” (live clip) Elvis Presley – “Love Me” (Ed Sullivan Show)
S0302 16/4/83 The Kinks – “Sunny Afternoon” (‘70s live clip) Lonnie Donegan – “Grand Coulee Dam” (Six-Five Special) Steely Dan – “Reeling In The Years” (live clip) Rufus & Chaka Khan – “Do You Love What You Feel?” (video) Bananarama – “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” (video) The Hollies – “He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother” (Pop Go The Sixties) New York Dolls – “Jet Boy” (OGWT) The Undertones – “Teenage Kicks” (‘80s live clip) The Move – “Fire Brigade” (TOTP)
Great stuff, Neil. The BBC Archive info on S03E02 simply says "VT prog, ex-lib & cpyrt film & VT inserts, film titles, stills" so it's great to find out exactly what was on it. Their description for the next episode is a lot better:
S03E03 B&W: Traffic perform "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush" in studio (8.54-9.41) COL: Queen perform "Killer Queen" in studio on TOTP (10.29-11.02) COL: Randy NEWMAN performs "Simon Smith" in studio (11.36-12.31) COL: The Doobie Brothers perform "China Grove" at outdoor concert in USA (13.40-14.44) COL: Ian DURY performs "What a Waste" in studio, his first performance on TOTP (15.32-16.32) B&W: Marianne FAITHFULL performs "Come Stay With Me" in studio (17.28-18.18) B&W & COL COMPILATION: Rolling Stones perform "Time Is On My Side" extract from film "Let's Spend the Night Together" (25.53-28.55)
I've managed to find copies of S03E04 and S03E05 and will post full details of those later today. Still need info for S03E06, though, which is described as simply "studio vt, cpyt film inserts, ex-lib footage, sp s film titles".

The episode below can be found in very poor quality on YouTube. Unfortunately, all the music clips have been edited down to a second or less so the screenshots are more a demonstration of the different video transitions in use during the 80s. Luckily this episode was catalogued by the Beeb so I've used their descriptions to identify the songs:
S03E04 Round 3
B/W Everley BROTHERS perf 'Walk Right Back' (5.16-6.16)
B/W BEATLES perf 'From Me To You' inc screaming fans (6.56-8.02)
B/W Aretha FRANKLIN perf 'It's In His Kiss' (13.45-14.35)
B/W Billy PRESTON perfs 'Satisfaction' (15.04-15.51)
B/W BEACH BOYS perf 'Bluebirds Over The Mountains' (16.51-17.23)
Tom PETTY perfs 'Shout' (18.23-19.20)
Ian HUNTER & MOTT THE HOOPLE perf 'Honaloochie Boogie' (19.49-20.35)
CLASH perf 'Rock the Casbah' (21.06-21.50)
THE WHO perf 'I Can See For Miles' (25.39-end; titles over at 28.48)

Jake was performed on TOTP just the one (22/04/71). This was repeated 13/05/71, and then a week later 20/05/71 was ""disc"". Now the BBC refers to this as TOTP (http://www.bbc.co.uk/totp/videoclips/artist/index_f.shtml ), although it doesn't look 100% like it is. Looks more like a specially filmed promo....and yet....TOTP used to have a 'two films ONLY rule' (which they broke on many, many occasions - check out 1976 for shots of the crowd dancing to clips of US singers which an untrained person may think is a BBC studio performance). Now....'71 had films (so it says here at Pete Seaton's Poptastic....now then, now then....) of 'Hot Love' - a film, NOT a performance or repeat - and one of the Apple promo films of Ringo's magnificent 'It Don't Come Easy'. That makes TWO films....so, therefore, methinks this is a promo, that the Beeb decided to call a 'performance', to get round the rule. I'm not sure whether it was a union or PPL agreement in regard to number of films shown, but there was a rule.
Incidentally, this is not listed on Pete Seaton's BRILLIANT Poptastic site as existing. So....despite the fact the clip has NEVER been lost, if my theory holds water (and it makes sense), this would be a promo masquerading as an insert and would be....an existing 'find'!!!! And if the BBC say it's TOTP, well, I'm not arguing this was the clip broadcast on the show. It's just not filmed in the TOTP studio. Unlike other rock legends like the Who and the Stones from that year who did record their bits in the studio - albeit when there was not a lot of audience - just techies and producion staff.

Here's another rarity - the complete Xmas Special from 1981:
S01E09 Round 1 The panel had to guess the year of the following songs:
The Who - Tommy Can You Hear Me? (1975) According to the end credits this is an extract from the movie "The Kids Are Alright" so I guess the year should really be 1979. The movie "Tommy" was released in 1975, although I guess this clip could have been filmed even earlier.
Elton John - Philadelphia Freedom (1975)
10cc - I'm Not in Love (1975)
Rod Stewart - Sailing (1975)
Sandie Shaw - Long Live Love (1965)
Eric Burdon and the Animals - It's My Life (1965)
The Righteous Brothers - You've Lost That Loving Feeling (1965)
Rolling Stones - The Last Time (1965)
Round 2 was the individual round and included the following 3 videoclips:
Spandau Ballet - Chant No. 1 (promo, 1981)
Adam and the Ants - Antmusic (promo, 1980)
Shakin' Stevens - You Drive Me Crazy (promo, 1981)
Round 3 was the lyric round. Mike then introduced Roy Wood who came on dressed as Santa to deliver presents to the panel. In fact, they were boxes containing clues to No.1 hits that the panel had to guess the title of.
Round 4 featured a montage of old B&W Christmas related film footage.
Round 5 was the quick-fire round and included just one videoclip:
Fun Boy Three - The Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum
The Beatles - We Can Work It Out
Many thanks to Dave Hall for providing the first part of this episode.

It's been a week now since this thread was started so it's time to review what has been discovered so far.
Although numerous clips from early Pop Quiz episodes are available online they all seem to be sourced from the same home recordings that have been doing the rounds for years. All of the available Series 1, Series 2 and Series 3 clips have now been catalogued in this thread (click here for an up to date list).
There are still many gaps, though. It's seems that only the episodes featuring big names like Cliff or Roger Taylor were recorded and shared through fan networks. From Series 1 we are still missing details on Episodes 3, 5, 6 and 8. Thankfully, one of the episodes not in circulation, Episode 6, was saved from certain destruction by Kaleidoscope. It features the late, great, Phil Lynott and Chas Chandler and was recently screened at a Kal event. Does anyone know what clips are in it?
The biggest hole to be filled, though, is Series 2. We only know what was shown in 3 of the 12 episodes (and one of those shows is incomplete). The other 9 shows from 1982 have completed eluded us. It appears that quiz shows were not something that you recorded and kept 30 years ago.
What we really need is for the BBC to repeat all these classic shows. I had hoped that they would reappear on UK Gold in the nineties when loads of programmes, unseen since their first broadcast, suddenly started floodings the airwaves, having finally been transferred from 2" and 1" onto BetacamSP. Since then, of course, the whole world has gone digital, requiring shows to be copied once again onto Digibeta and HDD. Our only hope is that these series become available online when the BBC launch their pay per view iPlayer.
I will continue adding the remaining info on Pop Quiz episodes I have, although these are all from Series 4 (1984) and Series 5 (1994). Anyone with further information on Series 1, 2 and 3 please post below...

Continuing on with Series 4, here are the last few BBC Archive details that haven't been posted yet:
S04E05 B/W FILM: Compilation of clips featuring children c. 1920s-30s (c) Filmfinders (1.48) Rolling Stones - "Jumping Jack Flash" (c) Filmfinders (0.43) Loving Spoonful - "You Didn't Have To Be Nice" (c) Filmfinders (0.45) The Jacksons - "I Want You Back" (c) Motown (2.46)

PROMO VIDEOS: Talking Heads - "Burning Down The House" (c) WEA (0.36) Culture Club - "I'll Tumble For You" (c) Virgin (0.35)
Whoever catalogued this episode has given us the length of the clips used and has grouped them by source. We'll need someone who has a copy of this to sort them into the right order. However, from the information below we can ascertain that the playout track over the end credits would have been black and white film footage of the Jacksons, "I Want You Back". There are plenty of different colour versions of this song on YouTube - I can't find any black and white so I've no idea which performance they used!
S04E06 VT CLIPS: Beatles sing "Day Tripper" 1965 (1.50-2.09) Marmalade sing "Obladi Ob- lada" 1969 (3.35-3.50) Fleetwood Mac play "Albatross" 1969 (3.50-4.10) Pretenders sing "Message of Love" (15.23-16.04) Robert PALMER sings "Bad Case Of Loving You" (18.09-18.53) Souixie & The Banshees sing "Dear Prudence" (21.32-22.08) Donna SUMMER & Musical Youth sing "Unconditional Love" (22.53-23.43)
FASHION MONTAGE: inc b/w & col tight ed ftge: clothes, make up & pasttimes from 1950s to 1970s (8.27-9.51)
B/W FILM SEQS: Roger MILLER sings "King of the Road" 1965 (1.37-1.50) Joan BAEZ sings "There but For Fortune" 1965 (2.09-2.30) Love Affair sing "Bringing on Back the Good Times" 1969 (3.13-3.35) Little Richard sings "Long Tall Sally" (16.27-17.12) Everly Brothers & Tennessee Ernie FORD sing "Rattlesnake Daddy" (19.19-20.25) Cliff RICHARD & The Shadows sing "Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On" 1964 (28.19-29.34, credits over from 29.02)
Once again the clips have been grouped by source. However, this time we can work out the running order by using the start and end timings.
S04E07 Thomas DOLBY 'Hyperactive' - promo video (11.45-12.29) Wilson PICKETT 'In The Midnight Hour' - promo video (11.45-12.29) John LENNON 'Slippin & A-slidin' - recording studio (14.16-14.54) David BOWIE 'Queen Bitch' - studio (15.32-16.16) PRINCE 'Little Red Corvette' in concert (17.02-18.07) B52s 'Legal Tender' - promo video (18.45-19.26) Peter FRAMPTON 'Show Me The Way' - studio (26.19-26.40) Steve HARLEY 'Here Comes The Sun' - studio (26.40-26.54) Rod STEWART 'Tonights The Night' - studio (26.54-27.13) BAY CITY ROLLERS 'Shangalang' - studio (28.07-28.22) ROLLING STONES 'It's Only Rock & Roll' - studio (28.22-28.40) WIZZARD 'Rock & Roll Winter' - studio (28.40-29.03) Ike & Tina TURNER 'I Think It's Gonna Work Out Fine '- studio (32.21-34.17)
This episode has already been listed, complete with screenshots, by forum member Mike Morton (see page 2). I've included the archived info here for completeness. It's the last of the 14 episodes of Pop Quiz that the BBC have officially catalogued!
