PRECIOUS CLIPS of The Rolling Stones perfoming 19th Nervous Breakdown on Top of the Pops has been unearthed by Wiped News’s resident columnist Ray Langstone.
Ray – who writes the Raider of the Lost Archive column – found the footage from the wiped performance in a 1966 BBC documentary on women’s mental health, “WOMEN,WOMEN,WOMEN: COMING TO TERMS”, which still resides in the BBC archives.
The rediscovered footage consists of two short clips from the lost Top of the Pops appearance, broadcast 03/02/66, totalling 33 seconds in total.
It features in new BBC Two programme The Rolling Stones at the BBC, which “celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones by delving into the vaults of archive material for a decade by decade retrospective of the band’s greatest hits”.

The lady enjoying the Rolling Stones music is my late mother who was the consultant psychiatrist Dr Marion Woollaston of Charing Cross Hospital. She was one of the subjects featured in the BBC 2 documentary series ‘Women Women Women’ The director was Richard Marquand who went on to be a successful film director whose films included ‘Return of the Jedi’.My mother was always an ardent Stones fan which I think comes over in this short clip.
