Filming for Channel 4's "Wired"

This was the first time that I saw Big Country live. I was fortunate enough to be selected by the computer at Country Club to receive tickets. My friend Chris and I had a pleasant day out travelling through the countryside and visiting Windsor Castle whilst making our way to the studios. We saw "Souxie and the Banshees" and "Londonbeat" before "Big Country" finally came on to record King Of Emotion. They then treated us to an impromptu gig for about an hour! They also played Peace In Our Time for, I think, the first time! It was altogether a fantastic experience. Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size pictures.
N.B. Old low-res pics rescanned & replaced on 26th May 2010. Bonus - 2 new pics added!
