Great to know I'm not the only one still up Jason!!!
A couple of my copies of some of these clips are second generation so I will benefit... but I get your meaning. If they are going to play less and less Countdown it's important that they play more episodes that have not been repeated and probably less compilations of very familiar material.
I remember seeing this Sherbet clip as a little nipper. It looks like it was recorded yesterday other than the fact its 4:3!
What gets me about this ep is that half of the clips were the typical promo clips we've all seen before.
Why didn't whoever compiled this episode at the time put up the live studio performances of these songs instead? That way more of these 'lost' studio items could have been seen - especially given that at that time - 1980 - most of the Countdowns still existed. That would have made it much more interesting to watch.
This ep also suffered from some technical issues - at least from my end - Marcia Hines' performance cut out a few times and the picture pixelated during JPY's performance. Even poor James Reyne looked a bit bored hosting it!
