  • Early alternative comedy on TV

    I'm trying to find early footage of alternative comedy (1980-85) from British TV. I'd be particularly interested in getting hold of the following:

    Boom Boom...Out Go The Lights (BBC2, ep 1, 14/10/1980; ep 2, 3/5/1981)
    Book 'Em and Risk It (C4, 11/8/83)
    The Entertainers: French and Saunders (C4, 6/10/83)
    The Entertainers: Stomping on the Cat (C4, 20/10/83) (also broadcast as Stomping on the Cat, C4, 4/1/84)
    An Evening for Nicaragua (C4, 1/12/83)
    Interference (C4, six eps, starting 12 November 1983)

    If anybody knows where I can find footage from any of these programmes (or other relevant ones), that would be brilliant. Any thoughts or advice much appreciated.
