Brett has alerted me to a bit of lost Countdown footage that has been uploaded onto YouTube.
It is on a YouTube channel that I have long been a subscriber to as he uploads many rarer items. I didn't recognise his new channel name at first but he had previously called his channel "nearlyoutofideas" and I have had a fair few of his clips ripped for me from there previously. He now calls his channel "Folk rock, Australian rock & more"
The clip is Mental As Anything - Possible Theme For A Future TV Drama Series being performed live on Countdown. As it was released in Nov 1979 and debuted in the Australian Top 100 around Christmas 1979 I am guessing that it was shown on the missing December 9 1979 show. The previous missing show to that was Oct 14 1979 which I would think would have been too early for this song.
The following is a link to the clip:
