๑ Rare Footage from TV Stations


I'll be posting some new stuff into during the next days, from a DVD with Mike Oldfield rare footage from some TV stations around europe, you can take a look and download has i upload them, but be advised, don't expect to much video quality just because i said DVD, some videos have better quality than others, some are spanish some are english and some are german and there are no subtitles whatsoever.

Here is some of the content in order:

Tubular Bells (part 1) 1974
All You Need Is Love (the making of Ommadawn 1975 English version)
The Making Of Blue Peter 1979
Guilty (Top Of The Pops 1979)
Mike And Sally Oldfield on Rockpop German tv 1979
Music Box Incantations documentary (German tv 1979)
With Friends On Tour Munich 1980
Musical Express Spanish tv 1980
Brit Awards 1980
Nationwide Report 1980
Austrian TV 1981
Nationwide Report 1981
Razzmatazz 1982
Five Miles Out and Shadow On The Wall (Bananas German TV)

Plus some more clips from TV Stations around Europe

Despite the quality, this is a must for any avid Mike Oldfield collector so i would like to thank Nick for this, i don't know you but you know who you are ^:)

You can use hjsplit to join the parts back into one VOB, however you can still play each part individually with bsplayer

Hope you enjoy it, cheers!

Just to let you know, server has had some issues but it's now all sorted. Or the apache2 bit is anyway, MySQL is playing up but that doesn't affect you. :-P

So anyone who's had trouble grabbing files from should no longer have a problem.

What is the status with Part IV and Part V? DIRs are created, but they are empty.

As I'm not really sure you read ALL the comments, even to the old posts, I decided to comment here and make some mess. ): deleted Wind Chimes video. Could you bring it back? For those of us who just recently get know of your blog?

I came across your site by chance as I was looking for an old clip of the live Guilty show of Top of the Pops back in 1979. I was the drummer who performed the live session. It was the actual sound recording used and not the original! When will it be available on your site?
