Not for the first 3 weeks, at least. There was a 3 Degrees performance on 15/04/76 that was never shown. I think it was a couple of weeks after that that they started showing the full episode later...

A couple of hundred copies would be nowhere near enough to get near the Top 200 these days, more like 2,000 to 3,000 copies are sold by the single at number 200.
