A series of thirty-minute concerts presented by TVS, the new ITV franchise covering the south of England, replacing the failing Southern Television.

First up were Duran Duran, followed by Altered Images, Depeche Mode, all live at live from the Chichester Festival Theatre, then moving to the TVS Theatre in Gillingham, Kent for Hazel O'Connor, Gillan, Haircut 100, The Stranglers and SLF.

There was the one series and then it was gone. Several shows would be later picked up by Central Television in the Midlands.

TVS' next pop venture would be at the beginning of 1983 hosted by Dave Jensen.
