From the Wikipedia page, the closing sentence is particularly interesting... -

The show generally included a studio session or live performance each week, arguably being the main reason fans tuned in. Many of these studio sessions were engineered, mixed and produced by Dave Dade, generously bearded BBC Senior Studio Manager, who worked closely with show producer Tony Wilson. Also featured were recordings from the BBC radio archives, both live and studio-sessions, from as far back as the late 1960s. This material included bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Uriah Heep, The Nice, Rush and Genesis, among others. At the time the majority of this material was not available on general release and even today, in the current era of the deluxe edition CD album featuring bonus tracks, some remains unavailable to the general public, mainly because Tony Wilson took the tapes with him when he left the BBC in 1995.
