Does anyone else remember two music videos made for Jeff Wayne's musical version of "War of the Worlds"?
The first one was an animated video to an edited version of the "Eve of the War" - I clearly remember seeing it on both Countdown (on one of the missing episodes??) and Sounds in 1978. Apparently the video was "unofficial" and not made with the consent of Jeff Wayne but it got screenplay nonetheless, used to promote the album in Australia.
My vague (and less certain) recollection of the second one was a more conventional video to "Forever Autumn" (without narration) by Justin Hayward, and he appeared in the video miming, but I don't recall much else about it. My recollection was that it shown on Countdown (another one of the missing episodes??) late 1978 or possibly early 1979.
The interesting thing is neither of these are on YouTube and I have not found any reference or description of them on the web anywhere.
So either I am going mad and never saw them, or this is a rare instance of something being erased from the collective world memory - itself a notable event if that's what happened.
Does "Forever Autumn" music video have got special effects as a concept?
I remember seeing the animated clip on Video Hits in the late 90's
I would love to see a video if it exists for "Forever Autumn",such a hauntingly beautiful song. As for "Eve Of The War" that was the first single I ever bought back in '78/'79.
