Top of the Pops

Here is Kenny Everett intro “Top of the Pops!” for a split second among other clips [YouTube]

Clip is from 1973, but which edition (11/05, 01/06, 22/06, 10/08, 17/08, 04/10 and 11/10 listed)? Most likely from a solo edition, rumoured to be 10/08/73, as this is the only solo edition to have been said exists privately – However, there exist also a Pan’s People performance from a Kenny Everett edition dating to 01/06/73, so it could be from either of these (0:14-0:15).
