Re-edited video which was torrented at HungerCity in April, 2008.  I cleaned up eight seconds of cable drop outs - eleminating black  screen, and removed the standalone recorder 5 minute chapter

points. At the time of the first upload, one staff member at HC called this "The Holy Grail" of Dire Straits video. 

Original notes: 
"This aired on MTV in 1986. It is an excellent documentary about Dire Straits at the height of their popularity -  following them during rehearsals, press conferences and just 
relaxing. The interviews are done amidst beautiful and exotic settings."
