'Ultimate' Pet Shop Boys: Here's What's On The DVD

Today the Pet Shop Boys' site gave up a little more info on the forthcoming CD/DVD release of Ultimate, a new greatest hits that's out November 1.
"The special edition of the forthcoming Ultimate Pet Shop Boys compilation includes a DVD with over three hours of BBC TV performances by Pet Shop Boys, released by arrangement with BBC Music. As well as the complete Glastonbury Festival performance from earlier this year, there are 27 performances of singles."
 Still hoping for at least one new song—the tracklist of the CD stands at 19 songs. Then again, the cover image is an old one, so who knows?

Anyway, below is what's on the DVD, in addition to the Glasto concert (wondering if that date for "Se A Vida E" (which was released in '96) is a typo?):

    it definitely seems like a record company cash in rather than a dedicated PSB project for the fans, but i'm probably likely to buy it anyone. i'm so easily manipulated.

    The 2003 performance of Se A Vida E is probably the Top Of The Pops 2 one
