OK folks, here is an uncirculated DVD of the Moody Blues from the BBC "Colour Me Pop" prog. from 1968. As far as I know, this has only ever been shown the once and is now liberated thanks to a fellow collector. The BBC actually aired over 30 of these programmes, but alas all but five have been wiped from the archives.More info here

Now as to the quality. This DVD transfer has black bars at the top and sides of the screen (this is how I received the basic files) and all I have done is added chapters/ menus. The picture quality is very good, although there is slight artifacting towards the end, - I understand this is due to the age of the master reel, All things said,this is a wonderful document of the Moodies at that time.
