    "The BBC do not have a policy of paying for material they themselves have lost over the years" So bureaucracy would lead this to being stored away by a collector forever? Well that's awesome. 🙁

    Is this the same 11-second clip that was found last year? Whatever, those who are expecting full length footage in a similar quality to The Hollies performance are likely to be disappointed!

    Yes! Bring it on…

    I'm sure Apple Records would be interested in buying it.

    I'm pretty sure Apple would not be interested, not in a poor quality, filmed-from-TV, 11-second clip, of a song they already have in at least 7 other different versions.

    Much as I welcome ANY newly found footage, I've never quite regarded this TOTP performance as the 'holy grail'. Among the other 'lost' songs The Beatles performed on TV are 'P.S. I Love You', 'Ask Me Why', 'Thank You Girl', 'Yes It Is' (3 times) and 'Eight Days A Week'… any one of these would be far more exciting finds in my opinion, as would Ringo's 1969 solo performance of 'Octopus's Garden'.
