    Still sounds silly to someone who doesn't live in the UK.

    WDIHTD was not released in the UK until near the end of Jan 1991. SBIT was released Nov/Dec 1990, so it does not make sense for WDIHTD to be recorded with BTDYK for the Xmas '90 TOTPs. Doesn't make sense.
    Unless, she pre-recorded it ahead for a Jan/Feb air date as she knew she would be back in Australia touring at that time?
    You've answered your own question...

    I said all along it existed and was sent this performance years ago from a friend who worked at TOTP (same person that gave me the Studio version of the ROL Medley).

    I was asked for it by someone working on the reissues cos they couldn't find it but I couldn't pass it on as I was asked not to.

    It should be shown now.

    It's called impartiality and isn't silly, regardless of where you are from.

    Perhaps but spare a thought for British band Massive Attack - they released [Unfinished Sympathy] during the 1991 Gulf War and were forced to temporarily change their name to Massive because of the war connotation associated with the original name...

    The BBC policy exists because the organization is government-funded through TV license fees (which is also why it's commercial-free).

    The BBC is government funded and must remain impartial.

    You're an idiot. But that's nothing new. Period!
