They're on the app, but not the website as I speak:

5:00 Countdown Dec 21, 1986 (Greedy Smith) - is this a repeat of the Xmas ep?
Then an hour of new release clips (I assume, as I don't recognise any of the artists) from 6:00
Though I guess if sport before it runs overtime, that hour will get scrapped?

It looks like they're sticking with the 'play videos from artists who feature on the episodes of Countdown etc. the following night' theme for the retro hour of clips on Saturday morning, which I'm not thrilled about at all, as usually it means repeats of common clips they regularly play anyway.
More retro videos airing on Saturday morning:
9:09 THE B-52's Love Shack*
9:13 BANANARAMA Cruel Summer*
9:17 DURAN DURAN Rio*
9:22 THE BEACH BOYS Kokomo*
9:25 THE TRIFFIDS Wide Open Road*
9:29 SISTERS OF MERCY Dominion*
9:34 THE STYLE COUNCIL Long Hot Summer
9:38 LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM Holiday Road
* have aired in recent years
The Countdown episodes may be good, but the selection of retro videos for this week is a bit... underwhelming IMO.
Yep, the 1986 episode is definitely a repeat... it re-aired in January 2009:
COUNTDOWN 21st December 1986 (ABC)
Ah bewdy, thanks heaps Nathan, **** net connection this end a bit screwed and wasn't able to get that info up. Much thanks! :)
No problem, sorry to steal your thunder.
Six countdowns (bloody awsome), can't really complain about that. With the videos, I see they're going to repeat OMD's Enola Gay for the umteemth million time,, but many of the other videos I don't have - assuming when you folk say they've been played before, I am thinking in the middle of the year? (when I never watch rage) - But all in all a fantastic start in my opinion. :)
Maybe the xmas special from 86 has been played before, but a repeat may not hurt, my reception is better now, and I think I may of ditch the 2009 airing of this episode as it was screwed with much pixelation. :(
The playlists are on the website, but you have to select 2014 from the 'by year' drop-down box to see them

The 1984 episode was an 'insert show' and had no live studio performances.
Looking forward to all the shows this week.
There's no sport preceding this week's retro episode, so the hour of new release videos finishing off the program clearly isn't just there in case they need to start late. So I guess that they'll do the same for each retro episode this year? What a waste!
Nathan, rage have also played Hall & Oates 'Adult Education' & 'Method of Modern Love' in the past year or so. I think they were both from vault specials. However, it will be good to get the handful of their vids in one hit.
I love the 21/11/82 episode. Upside down/back to front. I have a timecode episode of it. It does have tape damage, so to get it cleaned up and in digital is a treat.
