Videospeilet – March 29th 1986

lovingThe original video for “Johnny Johnny” featured, a little incongruously,  extracts from John Schlesinger’s 1962 film “A Kind of Loving”. Possibly something starring Hayley Mills would have been better, but whatever, by the time the video was released on “From Langley Park to Hollywood” the scenes had been replaced by shots of Wendy. Presumably there were problems with licencing.

So I’ve been looking for a nice copy of the original for a while, and one turned up from a surprising source today when I discovered the Norwegian NRK archive is now online and pored over it looking for Sprout material. It was featured, relatively complete, on the “Videospeilet” show in March 1986, and what’s more has been put online in glorious high definition.
