1. “Kate on-Screen” 28/12/79: For the uninitiated, the Kate Bush Christmas Special (titled simply “Kate on-screen”) aired on the BBC on December 28th, 1979. Bush was in between albums at the time, having released Lionheart in November 1978 and in the the middle of recording Never For Ever, which would come out in November 1980.

1979 Christmas special featuring Kate Bush. She performs Them Heavy People, Madrigal, December and Man with the Child in His Eyes, and duets with guest star Peter Gabriel.

“This was a programme recorded at the BBC Pebble Mill studios in front of a live audience. The tracks that involved dancing and therefore needed to be lip-synced were pre-recorded for the show at EMI studios in London. The tracks with Kate at the piano were recorded “as live”, as was Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes the Flood”. (The clue is that you can see the microphones!)”

Guest star Peter Gabriel sings Here Comes the Flood and duets with Kate on Another Day.
