The Kinks "Sunny Afternoon" on "A Whole Scene Going"

Here's a recently unearthed video of "Anorak Thing" heroes The Kinks lip syncing "Sunny Afternoon" on the short lived British TV series "A Whole Scene Going" (as a three piece nonetheless, bassist Peter Quaife had just crashed his Vespa and was out of comission for a bit and temporary replacement John Dalton had yet to be drafted, though he would go on to mime the number with them on "Ready Steady Go" and "Top Of The Pops" a week or two later, sadly clips of either of these performances are missing in action):

This clip was broadcast last year on the Beeb as part of the "Kinks on the BBC" compliation. In fact, there was actually a Kinks night on the Beeb last June where this show was broadcast along with Julian Temple's documentaries on Ray & Dave.

The clip of them performing "Sunny Afternoon" with Dalton on TOTP in '66 actually exists on Youtube even though it was wiped by the BBC in the early '70s, here it is:
