I'm also going to post the rare footage from the JD 2006's documentary in HD (Fage already had posted it, but in 480pp so...)

The presenter was Richard (then known as Dick) Witts - he later wrote a great book about Nico and at the time of the broadcast was the singer in The Passage. They appeared with Joy Division a few times - here's his recollections shared with JDC on the concert page of the Trinity Hall gig.....

Dick Witts: We played at least three gigs with Joy Division - at the Electric Circus, Roger Eagle's club at Liverpool (actually, they supported us, oddly) and the Trinity Arts Centre at Bristol (when Ian collapsed). I don't have dates for any of those - or others - only memories.

Joy Div Central: ... the Bristol trinity gig. When Andrew provided his photos for the web site I pointed out that Ian had his eyes shut in all the photos. It seemed like a bit of unlucky shutter timing until our mate Tim Brook, who was also at the gig, said he remembered distinctly that Ian had his eyes closed throughout the performance. Now you mention Ian collapsing. I'm guessing that's why there was no encore .... did Ian struggle through the set and then leave the stage and collapse at the end of the performance?

Dick Witts: At Bristol the hall manager, a middle-aged Black guy, came on stage and closed the gig. Barney ran on stage and tried to hit him and take the mic off him, and I think Pete physically held back Barney. It was clear to me that the band had no strategy to deal with this kind of thing, so it was probably at the start of the end of Ian's problems. Before this they were full of fun, putting a bucket of water over the door; it fell on Rob. My memory was that it took place during the gig, not at the end, but you may be right that it was before an encore, as I think the audience had already received a substantial set.
