Historic TV footage of very early Canterbury music

The following video comes from one of the discs we found among Phil’s collection and contains some wonderful old TV footage including Caravan, National Health and Kevin Ayers on The Old Grey Whistle Test and a very young Michael Parkinson interviewing Soft Machine.

The quality is far from great, and the footage seems to have been recorded by pointing a cine camera at a television. Nevertheless, I do think it is of real historical interest and although I have seen snippets of the footage on YouTube, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the whole compilation anywhere else.
