Great episode BUT I could KICK myself!
I requested the preview episode and not the episode with the FULL Boy George and Marilyn interview (ARGH)
Ah well, better than nothing :-(
Also on the down side, my DVD Recorder with built in set top box has been pix elating like MAD on the 1984 Episode. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!
The IQ copy has to be transferred again!
I am quite getting sick of this!
This was the actual show with the FULL interview!
I am such a FOOL, I should have paid more attention. I do have the interview from a dubbed copy BUT wanted a clearer one. Ah well, toooo late now :-(

Oh well, it was good to see a 1984 episode even if it wasn't the one you wanted to see.
I would imagine that it would only be about a 1 minute segment during The War Song as well judging by the usual length that they put interviews on other episodes.
I would have thought you might have requested the 1984 Countdown Special on Boy George, although I can only guess that you would already have it:
ID: 190905 - COUNTDOWN SPECIAL;WHO'S A TART

summary: THIS IS A COUNTDOWN SPECIAL FEATURING IV WITH BOY GEORGE. AND CULTURE CLUB FILM CLIPS. MELDRUM IV BOY GEORGE, HELEN TERRY AND MARILYN. THE MAJOR PART OF THE PROGRAM CONSISTS OF BOY GEORGE IV.

What's this 'Promise Me You'll Call' by Jimmy Barnes on the 4/11/84 episode? Was this the follow up to 'No Second Prize'? Had no idea it was a single and have never seen this video clip.
I enjoyed the 84 ep and it was most definatley the highlight of the night for me.
I loved seeing Howard Jones get swamped by eager fans whilst performing Get to know you well - reminded me of when JPY/Mark Holden used to receive the same treatment in earlier years.
Hopefully Rage will play more of this era of Countdown and less of the 79/80 eps which are becoming somewhat tiresome.
My friend and I full on got stuck into Sony Vegas today and we put the 1984 Countdown Logo over the 1984 Countdown Episode from last night.
it looks BRILLIANT! And soooooo much better than the ABC 1 Logo.
Going to do them all in the next month from this January!
Hoping there are more BETTER Countdown's in the next 2 weeks as that 1984 Episode last night is leaving me so HUNGRY for More amazing episodes like the 1984 one !!! :-)
I LOVE 1984 !!!
OK, something doesn't match up. The 21/10/84 episode which was shown on rage last month, doesn't follow on with the 10th Anniversary show, which says it being 27/10/84. Shouldn't it be 28th? which would make sense as it follows onto the next week, being the 4/11/84 episode. The 10th Anniv. show was shown on a Sunday night at 5.30 as advertised on the 21/10/84 episode.
Can someone back me up here or tell me I'm wrong?
You are correct, it was shown 5:30 - 6.55pm Sunday October 28 1984. Just another case of ABC archives being a little mixed.
Oddly, the replay the following Saturday Nov 3 only went for an hour so they must have replayed another episode.
Thanks for clearing this up. It's funny how rage have played the 10th Anniversary show 3 times, yet everytime they highlight it as 27 October. I will put it down as 28th for my records. Cheers.
It's recorded in their archives as transmitted on 27/10/84. It was probably the recording date as they would have a recording date, transmitted date and replay date attached to each episode but in this case Oct 27 is the only associated date.
Just that the 27/10/84 - 10th Anniversary Show, should really be 28/10/84. ABC Archives are wrong. The show was recorded on 27/10/84 and transmitted on 28/10/84.
barne's ' promise' was his debut.weak song.
Jimmy Barnes debut was earlier in the year with 'No Second Prize' which reached No12 on the charts.
Promise was the followup single, but stalled at No89.
Does anybody else think that Austin Tayshus's 'The Phantom Rap' beat sounds alot like Wham's 'Wham Rap'?
That was the first I had heard of it, and no wonder it wasn't a hit. Could well have been a bit of copying of Wham Bam I The Man in there. How good are Hall and Oates? Evident particularly by the awesome song and video "Out Of Touch". Gee, that Melbourne Cup theme was annoying, & just plain stupid. Thankfully the music saved the day!
Yeah the MC theme started to grate on me, especially GW doing the Top10.
I can't stand Dr Turf either.
