From Music Week 18th February 1984

The music show Live From London, recorded at the Marquee Club for transmission by satellite to Europe, is to be seen on TV in London following a deal between the makers, Trilion Pictures, and London Weekend Television. LWT will screen the series in its Saturday evening rock concert slot. Artists who have appeared include Carlene Carter, King Kurt. Chris Rea and Lords Of The New Church, and it is introduced by Capital Radio's Nicky Home. Initial reaction from viewers in Europe, who see the show via Satellite Television's Sky Channel, has been "excellent'.', says Philip Goodhand-Tait, Trilion Pictures, managing director. "We set out to make a series that captured pop performers doing what they do best, performing in front of their own enthusiastic audiences in a sympathetic atmosphere," he said. Some of the countries receiving the series have indicated they may be interested in a reciprocal arrangement.
