Vic & Bob On Jools Holland’s Happening

Before he did Later with the BBC, Jools Holland made his Happening for BSB in 1990-91, before it moved to Channel Four for a further 12 episodes. Here we see an audience at first baffled by Vic & Bob, and then charmed and won over.

What we don’t see is all the stuff that has been imprecisely excised by the edit. I wonder what was missing, why it was cut, and how much of the reaction is manufactured in the edit. Interesting.
