Joy Division – Transmission

The Old Grey Whistle Test featured a 1979 performance of TRANSMISSION by JOY DIVISION.
(July 14th 1981; original broadcast: ‘Something Else’ (1979))
The video here is JOY DIVISION’s appearance on the BBC2 TV program SOMETHING ELSE.
This ‘Manchester’ themed episode was likely the first time people across the country had seen Joy Division playing live – particularly those too young to get to the gigs.
The band performed Transmission and She’s Lost Control and this really should have been the first of many spectacular TV clips of the band, but alas this is a typically rare video as there remains few high quality documents of Joy Division playing live.
