Recorded in front of 2500 members of their Northern Area Fan Club, this show and the concert that followed represent some of the most desired items amongst video collectors.

Juke Box Jury was transmitted between 6.05 pm and 6.30 pm, chaired by David Jacobs, and watched by over 23 million viewers. Maybe a more complete recording is yet to surface on one of those famous Grundig reel to reel tapes! (It would be a "Beautiful Dream(er)")
