Here, here, everything is by design.
Here, here, everything is kept inside.

The Plan K footage does exist and for a meager fee, anyone can watch it. The complete Plan K footage, Oct 16 1979, will be shown on Aug 1.

Lmao........great point. It could be the worst quality ever, and we all would buy a copy! We would all love to own a copy, not all of us can make it to England to watch this screening, so having this available on DVD makes sense!

well, and I don't know if that's what they have in mind, there is unseen footage from two other gigs if you think about it (no, not Leigh).

So... 'Wilderness', 'Colony' and other the Apollo tracks that were left off the HATYM video ....

I always wished more Eindhoven footage could surface ....

Yeah it's a real shame whoever shot the Eindhoven gig apparently only had a handful of those dinky 8mm two and a half minute reels.. It's such evocative footage and it was a stonker of a gig too.

Couldnt agree more Richie .... band on form, great setlist, really tight performance ..... wonderful sound .... another one of those 'if only' scenario's associated with JD ....

I remember my mate bought the HATYM video from WHSmiths in '83 a year after it came out ....and he took it back thinking there was a fault with it ! (and they refunded him his money!). Based upon the Apollo footage I dont blame him  ... haha ......

... thankfully the glimpse of Plan K in colour and Eindhoven redeem things somewhat

I would have liked the Apollo footage to be a lot clearer and brighter, but I wouldn't have given it back to the shop if they'd offered to buy it back for 10 times the price. It's fantastic.

Yes my parents bought me a copy of HATYM around 1983 for me for Xmas.  I remember my Dads words when I unwrapped it "don't get too excited son - I think it's faulty - you can take it back if you want to."

Needless to say I still have it somewhere - although it was a Betamax copy - so I can no longer watch it !

My tickets arrived today. It is being held in the 400 seater auditorium of the Heritage Centre in Macclesfield. They are also opening the Joy Division exhibition that day (normally shut on a Sunday) and the shop will be open for a while which sells the JD guided walk.

Let's hope they fill the place, must be too good an opportunity to miss for anyone within striking distant.

The staff are very helpful to deal with on the phone especially Victoria (the Bookings  Secretary).

The most frustrating thing for me regarding the Apollo footage is the sound quality ....god knows why they didnt take a line out from the mixing desk, as the acoustics were the filming took place were poor ... and that loses the power of JD in my opinion

I personally find the Apollo sound more powerful than, say, the Eindhoven songs from the same video.

Who's got the right of Plan k Video? It's time we fight for a copy cause it will never be released for sure.

It'd be great if this does get a release, audiovisual quality issues or not.. It's a pity there's no decent audio bootleg to synch up with the image and improve the sound.
