    Nice to know they are still finding Australian censor clips.

    Unlikely, I guess, but lets hope more WHO turns up in this way......

    Complete runs of television shows still being lost from the archives as recently as 1984. Sigh. :emoji_disappointed:

    DISCOVERY 453 – It’s a Knockout – Heat 5, Cardiff
    Originally transmitted 21.08.1970

    The BBC’s holdings of domestic ‘It’s A Knockout’ programmes prior to 1975 are very patchy indeed, with only 8 editions (from 52) surviving in some form between 1966 and 1974. The situation with the international series, often referred to by the BBC as ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’ to distinguish it from the domestic competitions, was much the same. Prior to this new find, the BBC held just 6 from 60 programmes, only 4 of which contained English commentaries. However, all editions (1965-1982) are held in European archives, with commentaries – depending on the national archive – in Dutch, Flemish, French, German and Italian.

    One particular recording, in French, of the fifth JSF heat of 1970 from Cardiff (broadcast live to Europe on 5.8.1970 and shown later on BBC1 on 21.8.1970) has proved to be of particular significance, as the last 45 minutes of the programme features no French commentary and the sound cuts instead to the audio feed from the British venue and the English-language presentation by David Vine and Eddie Waring. (Additionally, the English commentary can also be heard in the earlier section at a lower level under the French commentary.)

    The edition, staged in the grounds of Cardiff Castle, featured a British team from Lowestoft, who had qualified for the international event by narrowly beating a team from nearby Great Yarmouth in May of 1970 (a programme which is lost, though film footage of the teams’ training survives in the East Anglian Film Archive and can be seen on their website).
    The French holding of the 1970 Cardiff ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’ is a B/W film recording, somewhat zoomed in on the image and lacking definition. However, it has been possible to combine the soundtrack from this recording with a colour videotaped source from Germany, resulting in a colour recording with that has been returned to the BBC archive. There are, however, three short sections of damage to the German videotape, each resulting in a loss of picture, and the missing footage at these points has been reinstated from the French B/W source.

    This recovery sees the earliest surviving English language commentary from the ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’ series retrieved and synchronised with a colour recording thanks to the efforts of Alan Hayes who has worked tirelessly to create this restored version.
