Clannad In 1982 TV Show "As I Roved Out"

During the early eighties, on BBC TV there was an Irish music programme titled "As I Roved Out", a programme responsible for giving many musicians their first TV appearance. Clannad, including a very young Enya, was one of them. The show was produced by Tony McAuley, who also produced the TV series "The Celts" with music of Enya, as her first album with the same title came out in 1987.
Have lots of fun watching the show.
