This was filmed before the days of camcorders. We had a seperate camera and a portable video recorder, which took proprietary 30m cassettes. Once we had a recording we would transfer the film to hi-grade VHS, one copy each ... and all subsequent copies were made from those.
I'm not quite sure what happened to the master tape. Could have been taped over as we only had a few, or mislaid. But anyway ... this is probably as good as it's going to get.
We went on the tour with the intention of recording 30m segments from as many shows as we could ... until our small stock of tapes ran out. Everything went quite smoothly at Irvine. There was a balcony at the back, which was a bit to far to film from in those days as we only had 2 or 3x zoom. So as Paul was taller than me, he took the camera into the crowd and I covered the audio side of things. Things were a bit manic in the crowd, especially at the begining. Paul almost got knocked over during 'I want the one I can't have' ... but I think he made a pretty good job of it considering. Many of the other shows just didn't offer the opportunity to get the camera in. We probably could have done it in the Shetlands ... but we didn't take a lot of heavy stuff over with us on the ferry. So this ended up being the only video from the tour.
I've dubbed on the audio I recorded of the gig, direct from the master tape. Recorded on a Sony Professional Walkman, with Sony EMC-929LT Mic, onto Metal tape. Sounds quite good.
I've also added a slide-show of some pictures we took on the tour. About 50 I think. Mainly backstage, soundchecks etc. I've used a version of 'Unloveable' as the audio, which I recorded (with the same equipment) at Inverness during the soundcheck.
Anyway ... this is my first torrent, so I hope it works

Steve, this is fantastic. To get an early video is one thing, to get it from the master is another. And some original backstage shots in a DVD menu is the icing on the cake. Awesome.
I haven't seen it yet, but it's coming down at a good speed.
