Iron Maiden miming on 80s Australian TV is the surprisingly HQ video you need to watch today

As anyone who watched our recently shared footage of Iron Maiden miming on a German TV show knows, the British metal icons aren’t exactly fond of being asked to fake their songs on live television, and it’s hardly the best way to witness some of the greatest heavy metal anthems ever written being played regardless.

Still, one intrepid YouTuber named Master Noise Present has managed to get hold of some rare 80s footage of Maiden doing exactly that on now-extinct Australian music chart show Countdown, upscaling the video so spectacularly that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was shot last week and just fed through a slightly retro-looking post-production filter.
