. The BBC Four repeats have just featured a 1988 version of Bryan Ferry's 'Let's Stick Together', although the first time they showed it as part of the breakers, it seemed to be just a video for the original version from 1976 complete with muffled mono sound.
The sound quality was terrible, I'm presuming it was the audio from the 16mm film optical soundtrack, they were notoriously poor. By the time it was shown on the following episode they had dubbed the audio for the remix on it. The picture looked quite poor as well, I'm sure it didn't look that bad when we saw it on the 1976 episodes. Seems to have been quite a common thing on these repeats though seeing music videos that look pristine, then seeing them on the modern music channels, YouTube (even official accounts) and the like and they look incredibly poor.
I always find Wonderful Christmas Time by Paul McCartney is one of the worst victims of this, looked so clean on the 1979 TOTPs, but the version show on the music channels for as long as I can remember, and even on Paul's own DVD, looks awful, looks like it's gone down several generations of both film and video, and probably a standards conversion or two as well. I have a copy of an ITV Chart Show episode from 1993 where they show it on the video vault, and they're using the awful quality version there too, only 14 years after the song came out.
