The New Seekers' 1972 tour of the UK kicked off in Edinburgh shortly after the group had performed at the Usher Hall in the Eurovision Song Contest. On 12th April the tour took them to the Royal Albert Hall. The concert was filmed for television and released, years later, on video and DVD.
In May 2003 a compilation DVD of Eurovision hits was releasd, which featured the New Seekers singing Beg, Steal Or Borrow. This recording was taken from a TV appearance and was not the group's performance at the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest. The "real" Eurovision recording was finally released two-and-a-half years later on a DVD celebrating the contest's 50th anniversary
Several of the New Seekers other TV appearances have also been released on DVD, including some of their appearances on European pop shows as well as their guest slots on variety shows in the UK. Notable amongst these are: We've Got To Do It Now, performed on Series 3 of The Two Ronnies, and You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me, recorded for the 1973 Morecambe & Wise Christmas Special.
