This was uploaded to YouTube from a Saints fans Video collection. Made by Meridian Films in 1990, it has never been released on DVD and as such, there is a whole generation of fans who will never have seen it.

A word of warning though, it runs to just over 1 hour 27 minutes, so be prepared to settle down for a while...
