BBC2 used to have a music prog on in the evening which showed mainly vid's of tunes. 808 State with MC Tunes was on there doing a version of Dance Yourself To Death that was so much better than the released b side. To jog anyone's mem they were all in a cellar, 808 surrounded by a bank of keyboards, monitors and decks with Tunes in front. Does anyone know how I can get hold of this footage or tune, or does anyone know what I am talking about!!

just found this on the bbc web site
Dave Pearce Biog

Dave Pearce has a long record as a DJ on pirate, commercial and BBC radio, and in the clubs. His first taste of radio came in 1981 as a DJ on the popular pirate station Radio Jackie in South London, while he was still at school.

Dave's passion for dance and black music saw him grab an opportunity to work behind the scenes at BBC Radio London where he persuaded bosses to give him a late night show playing all the top club tunes. He then helped create the BBC's first hip hop show, which became a cult late night show and helped launch the careers of previously unknown rap acts.

After Dave persuaded the BBC station to hook up with top New York station WBLS for live satellite shows, he was approached by BBC television to help create their first dance show 'Behind The Beat'. He went on to present a nightly show for young Londoners on BBC GLR for 3 years, focusing on dance, acid house and rap.
