jools hooland's january 1987 live trail for that week's edition of 'the tube' went out nationally from tyne-tees, & had him telling the audience to watch the show or be 'ungroovy fuckers', resulting in a six week ban & the premature cancellation of the show. there's no yt of it, & at the time tyne-tees only made audio recordings of their live output, so it's doubtful it will emerge.

someone posted this, so there's hope yet.

Maybe it's a false memory but I'm fairly sure I saw it on one of the earliest "Most Shocking TV Moments" type programmes in the late 80s or early 90s.  Maybe "TV Hell"?

Does Melody in the Queen's Nose count? I mean she looked bloody good in that bikini, but well...
Been mentioned before, but this moment happens literally 1'15" into the first episode of The Queen's Nose

You could be thinking about the use of a clip from this intro (I guess from the episode trailed above). Apparently there had been complaints.

Just thought I'd suggest it, because I recall seeing that clip on an earlyish clip show, but have never witnessed the 'ungroovy fuckers' moment.

Jools' suspension also led to The Laughing Prisoner, which annoyingly is muted on YT (probably due to music). I think there was meant to be a DVD of it, god knows what happened to that.

Yeah, I'm now tending towards false memory, oh well...

I also recall seeing that clip of Holland on some shocking moments show but am happy to admit it's probably a false memory.

It's discussed here by Holland and Yates from the 1994 retrospective Legend Of The Tube, and they play the broadcast of the aftermath but not the original trail.

I actually did see it live. I'd have been quite happy if it had spelt the end of the greasy little smuggo's TV career.
