The This is Tom Jones TV show is coming out on DVD next week.  Included is The Who miming to an alt. Pinball Wizard.  Unfortunately, not in color see below.

There's nothing wrong with your DVD player. The original tape of this show couldn't be located; only a kinescope survives. Conspiracy theorists might view this situation as a posthumous prank by Keith Moon, in that the madcap drummer appears to be mocking singer Roger Daltrey. The Who attack Pinball Wizard, which had been on the American charts for two weeks when this performance aired (Tommy, the group's rock opera masterpiece, wasn't yet in the racks).
