DEF LEPPARD's HYSTERIA Video In Classic Top Of The Pops Episode

Def Leppard's Hysteria video was featured on Top Of The Pops in December 1987 and the show is set to be broadcast again tonight.

The band were featured once again on the show in early December 1987.

After two appearances performing 'Animal' and 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' to playback in August and September the third UK single 'Hysteria' was used during the regular 'Breakers' segment.

This segment had long clips from promo videos of songs that were just entering or climbing the charts.

This episode is being rebroadcast again in BBC Four tonight and tomorrow for the first time in full since its original airing.

Sadly the 'PSSOM' performance from September 1987 was not shown as BBC Four skipped through to late September episodes.

Both 'Armageddon It' and 'Love Bites' were featured as videos in 1988 but the band did not perform in studio again until February 1989 with 'Rocket'.
