Tubular Bells, based on the famous Mike Oldfield album, was a show put on by the Cecilian Society’s Contemporary Music Group in the Queen Margaret Union in March 1977.

Colin Finnie formed the CMG within the Contemporary Music Group and transcribed and orchestrated Tubular Bells from the record, with a couple dozen performers. Richard Dikstra, as director, and him decided to record the performance with a full three-camera outside broadcast setup out of the Television Service’s OB van.
