OGWT
« on: January 19, 2019, 02:23:48 PM »
Just received latest OGWT episode. From Cardiff with Sassafras, Budgie, Man ( Ain't Their Fight) and best of all... The Neutrons.

Spooky in that last few days I've been trying to find the OGWT episode with The Neutrons, and lo and behold...

As they say these days, "enjoy"

Wrong link Michael - it's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3NUsjjl6_M&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1LwI7H84Lq-aADDO-AyRVokMv_utmow3gvAsANLzPATINQeAOVL9_ZOY4 with Neutrons after 5:28. 'No More Straights' with silent movie backing.

A repeat of 'Ain't Their Fight' (see other thread) is around 18:25 but has a few seconds chopped off the end.

Both links work for me, Nick, but two is better than one for sure!

Hope you and Celia are well.

This Ain't their fight version has less quality than the first one here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhQTMEIqETk
and what a pity not to have The Neutrons live !

That's weird, when I originally tried your link it took me to a different show with Alex Harvey! Works now though.

We hope you and Helen are well too!

Looks like the site has been pulled unfortunately, due to copyright claims.

Bloody hell! For the first time in my life I think
The BBC has outlived its usefulness.

That's a bummer. I had assumed that the Whistle Test Archive channel had official status.

So we know they won’t make DVDs of them. Might they show the episodes on BBC4, one every Friday as per TOTP? Of course not!

I suggest TV outlived its usefulness a long time ago.

We're not quite Pete Tuck territory, but ours is mostly there for the radio. And even that's getting on my nerves with BBC presenters who don't pronounce their t's as if it's now the fashion, say "slippy" and so on.

Or is it an age thing  ;D

That OGWT program had poor quality, so no problem if it's been deleted. (I downloaded the program of course, if anyone is interested)
Remember you have all the OGWT Man videos (and others) in my Youtube channel:
