Video bootlegs of television specials
60 minutes of live footage from the 16 May 1985 concert in Barcelona, interspersed with interviews with Morrissey and Johnny Marr, and studio material. A 40-minute re-edit of this special was broadcast in 2001 and can also be found on bootlegs, although more scarcily. The programme was rebroadcast in digital and in full in 2008 so fans and collectors might want to put a little extra effort and get the better version.
An 10 minute interview with Morrissey was shown on British programme Earsay on 7 June 1984 (see further down this list). The full never broadcast 45-minute interview is now circulating on bootlegs. The footage was featured on a semi-official interview DVD released under the title "Still Ill" which was also in its turn bootlegged.
