I've been surfing on youtube, and have seen some stunning live performances of many artists, including the Police, John Lennon, Dobie Gray, Alice Cooper kicking out "Under My Wheels," and the most amazing Johnny Winter piece.

From what I can see, this was a British television show.

First, I'd love to hear anything about this program from those who know, such as what years the show was produced, and if DVD's of the show can be purchased.

Second and primarily, I'd like to know whether or not the Hollies ever appeared on it. This seems to have been a great showcase for bands who can actually, you know, play their instruments and sing. So that would have been right up their alley.

Thanks for that link. I'll have to see if I have a DVD player than can play that format, though.

There is a US availability on amazon's US website, but it's prohibitively expensive and a few of the reviews are not encouraging.
