Just seen a May 1989 edition on YouTube and noticed on the Ferry Cross The Mersey video, they zoomed into it to cut off the scrolling banner with the names of the Hillsborough victims, which seems a bit disrespectful. Probably so Paul Ciani could pull his trick of cutting videos short, as it starts about a minite in, and the first 20 or so names would have already scrolled by. Had they run it in full, with the names intact, on a previous show?
Anyone know how The Chart Show handled it? None of the 1989 editions I have are ones that feature it.
There are actually two versions of that video - one with the scrolling banner of names and one without. The Chart Show always used the version with the names - I think they tended to play it pretty much in full, though I don’t know if the names run for the entire length of the videoclip.
