Hope you don't mind me joining here I've got here from Google may I ask does the copy of Empire have some of Xmas Blind date on before it? and I think some musical program? on the same tape too?
If so I know exactly where the beta tape originated from, I can also remember one of the adverts during Empire was for the Black Lace party album when it shows them singing Agadoo, doing the conga and shit like that
Btw great site I've read lots of threads and ended up thinking"shit so it weren't just me who noticed things like that"
Hi Mark and welcome to the forum.
The ESB download is fantastic.
The copy starts with approx. 40mins of Blind Date (shudder!).
Hilarious 80s fashion and an annoying Scouse bint. What more could you ask for on Xmas Day
There's approx. 20mins of a Michael Crawford "Save the Children" Xmas charity show after ESB.
Can't remember seeing the Black Lace ad you're referring to, but there are a few classic ads on there.
The Deryck Guyler 'Skeleton' Scotch video tape ad and the KitKat pop group one.
