Im 41 now & when I was 16 I was in the audience of the Oxford Road Show for the following performance.
Shakespeare's Sister (ORS 1985-02-22)
The Headmaster Ritual (ORS 1985-02-22 // Barcelona 1985-05-16)
I was sure they did 3 tracks, but maybe the show had gone off air when they played the last one.
In those days only posh people had video recorders & Ive been trying to get a copy on video - or now DVD ever since, as apparently I was clearly visible in some shot by my schoolfriends watching it live!!
After having another mooch online this morning - Ive found this site & my hopes have been raised :P
If anyone could please burn me a copy (I'll cover costs & P&P) Id be eternally grateful.
I saw them several times live - but this is the only recording Im after.
#Fingers crossed#

Passions just has those two tracks listed, so I guess that's all they broadcast.
It's available in quite a few places. This DVD has it. Can you download it?

Hi,
in fact i don't have THIS dvd,but mostly you get an ISO-File or an Video_TS Folder withs VOB-Files.
First file you can burn with Nero Burning Rom for example or freeware like ISO-Buster or ImgBurn(Button: write image file to disc).VTS-Files with Nero Express or ImgBurn(button: write files/folders to disc) or something.
Burning Speed as slow as possible.

Well, if you're using Windows then you could install VideoLAN which is a video player which will play DVD VOB files.
If you prefer it on a disc, then use IMGBurn. Choose Write Folders To Disc and copy the VIDEO_TS directory to the disc. Copy the whole directory, not just the files.
