And on that high point I say goodbye to the Pet Shop Boys community. Thank you.

Clearly attempting to trump The Roxy, Batesey bends the truth and says that the PSBs are live in the studio. Yes, live in the studio last week, you preposterous man!

I just watched tonight's edition. I didn't notice before that it's a different edit to last weeks performance. Obviously filmed together but different camera angles, audience and backdrop. Always assumed they'd only filmed one 'Sin' on this date until The Christmas TOTP appearance.
Do you know the difference between the two genders..?

Neil was smirking at the beginning

I thought Chris told him not to look triumphant?

They did 2 completely separate performances of Its a Sin in June/July 1987, filmed 1 week apart with completely different sets.

This was the first week when it debuted at number 5 on the 25th June edition:-

Then the following week when it got to number 1 they performed it again on the 2nd July edition:-

The 2nd of July performance was then repeated on the 9th July edition. It’s not a different performance, just a repeat. The 25th June & 2nd July performances were not filmed on the same day but 1 week apart, which was standard practice. Multiple performances with different sets, audiences and camera shots never happened on the same day for any act appearing on TOTP. Any act only recorded a new performance at least a week later - if it had climbed the chart.

So in total they played it 3 times - 25th June, 2nd July, 25th December.
Its taken me all of my life to find you
