A difficult to find video clip of the track from the Adventures in Modern Recording album.


"On TV" is a single from the British synthpop group The Buggles, released in July 1982 on Carrere Records. Though it didn't chart in their home country of the UK, the single did go gold in Canada.

Like "I Am a Camera" and "Lenny", this Buggles single "On TV" b/w "Fade Away" was re-released on iTunes as an EP by Trevor Horn's own ZTT label in 2012, with two bonus demos: one of "On TV" itself, and one called "Videotheque". After its 1981 demo had been completed, "Videotheque" would later be reworked for Dollar's 1982 release, The Dollar Album. As well, the lyrics of "Videotheque" would also influence the song "Hand Held in Black and White" from the same album. Both Dollar songs were released as singles and charted in the UK top 20 chart. All four of these tracks (A-side/B-side and two demos) are also available on the 2010 re-release of Adventures in Modern Recording.
