This is the original broadcast of the Essential Mix restored to its full 2 hour glory unashamedly unedited to include the News. It was aired only once on the 12th December 1994.
The earlier Essential Mixes were split into 3 parts because of two news bulletins.

12.00am to 12.30am would be Part 1
12.32am to 01.30am would be Part 2
01.32am to 02.00am would be Part 3

Most of the available versions of this Essential mix floating around the Web seem to be edited in the wrong order or missing parts of the mix. This restoration is THE definite version. This is how the show run (as good as can be identified).
