To answer your question. I don't think so, unless there is some amateur stuff out there. Have certainly never seen any, and I don't think Nic has either. Mind you it would be a laugh to see!!

I guess that technology has moved on. Back in the 70's it wasn't so easy. And Nic never made the TV.
Talking of Nics, I don't think thyere's much footage of Nick Drake either.!!

I know they were around in 1980.

Around 1980, when I lived in Dubai, the (Liverpool) Spinners visited, to play at Dubai Country Club. (Other guests around this time at the club included Julie Felix and a comedian called Billy Connolly - we missed both because we were on holiday both times)

We were invited to take part in a lunchtime session at the Dubai Marine Hotel ,where they were staying, during which my son (aged 1) was sitting on Cliff's knee, and one of the other members went back to his room, got a Video recorder and recorded my medley of Morris tunes (played rather badly).

Anyone know what happened to the miles of film shot by 'Peter the Red' in Sidmouth in the 70s - and perhaps earlier?
He used to get around the festival on a mini motorbike and seemed to film everything in sight. I don't think he only covered the dance side of things but I may be mistaken.

All the Peter the Red films went to JKL Video in Sidmouth and were put onto video and available for purchase. JKL Video has now closed, following the (semi) retirmement of the owner. I have been in discussion with him about what happens to all his videos - Peter the Red archive and JKL's own videos.
There are copies of the Peter the Red videos in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library.

Pavane - I think that video cameras were probably more common in Dubai than here at that time - it's the kind of place where disposable incomes are pretty high. I remember how prevalent the old brick type mobile phones were when almost no-one outside of the investment bankers in Britain had them.

I'd LOVE to be proved wrong, though - never having seen the man play live, a video clip would be a wondrous thing.

I've searched high & low for film/video footage of Nic & The Halliard, all to no avail.Back in the 60s/early 70s there were an increasing number of 8mm & super8mm film cameras around, but IMHO,it's got less to do with hardware availability & much more to do with the impact of the 'digital revolution' & attitudes in society. Now it's so easy to film/video/record almost any performance (legally AND illegally!). The results can be viewed instantly, you can more or less edit as you go. Back when we were performing, capturing good moving images was a much more serious undertaking, left largely to the pro's and a small group of dedicated amateurs, none of whom sadly, ever pointed a camera at us!

The link no longer goes directly to the clip but only to YouTube after which you might still get to it via a search. I asked Mudcat to remove it and this is the best they could do.

It won't be on YouTube at all for much longer as Google have been requested to remove it from their site altogether as the filming and uploading were unauthorised and thus a breach of copyright. I didn't know this when posting the original link.

Have a look at Nic's MySpace page instead which is maintained by his daughter Helen:

JKL video certainly seemed to film anything that moved, while Peter the Red had certain preferences. There is a very young Damien Barber in the Theatre Bar as I remember.
Just a point though Ralfie, what would be the reaction if someone turned a video camera towards the musicians in the Radway? There are several faces we would all love to see again, but no-one is ever keen to be filmed. As a balance I should point out that the same would probably be true of The Anchor.

Of the 8 John Peel sessions that Nic recorded between 1972 and 1977 very few survived.

Whilst working on the Unearthed project, here is a list of what I "Unearthed"!

28-10-1974
Bonny Banks of Fordie (Off Air)

14-10-1975
Bonny George Campbell (Off Air)
The Wanton Seed (Off Air)
The Lakes of Shilin Off Air)

08-07-76
Billy, don't you weep for me
Annachie Gordon
Ten Thousand Miles
My Grandfather Knew the Plough

19-04-1977
William Glen
Annachie Gordon
Rose of Allandale

As far as I know, The 76/77 sessions still exist in the BBC archive, but as the only track not to appear elsewhere is "Grandfather" I doubt that they will ever see the light of day.

Hope that helps

Hi Dick, Can't really answer re sale figures of "Unearthed" but I'm sure a quick E Mail to Julia Jones at Mollie Music would get the info for you. After all, I doubt if it's a state secret! and as it's producer, I would be intrigued to find out myself.
As far as video is concerned, an indepent TV producer is working on an hour long documentary on Nics life, due to be aired on the BBC in the spring. It includes some old footage of Nic playing, but, mainly concentrates on Nics performances this year with his son Joe (guitar) and Belinda O'Hooley (Keys/accordian) More news to follow.

Hi Dick.....Quick update, Julia fell off a ladder in her loft at the weekend, and broke her back. She's OK but confined to a hospital bed dosed up with morphine, so, won't be doing much in the way of E Mailing for the next few weeks. I'm sure that all her friends wish her a speedy recovery. It does mean that Nic is now in charge of the kitchen....Maybe not such a good idea!

As we're talking about Julia's accident, here is part of a message Helen Jones (Nic & Julia's daughter) sent to me. I reproduce it with her permission:

" Mum is doing well at the mo, She had an op on her wrist yesterday to pin it in place. Her back is causing her the most pain though. She fractured her lumbar spine (L2 to be exact) and her pelvis in two places. They are wanting to get her mobile as soon as possible so they are going to try and get her out of bed today. I'm not sure they'll succeed to be honest as all the pain relief from the op would have worn off. Anyway hopefully she won't be in hospital too long if they can get us some home help to come in and help her wash and dress and stuff. Other than that, Dad is doing a really good job at home and I've got to go back to work but we are managing fine between us and have some great neighbours who have offered Dad lifts to hospital and shops etc."
