I just finished listening to this exact track on the way to work, and on my 
recording from BBC Radio 1 I have never noticed that anything is bleeped.  
I'm sure I would have noticed because in my opinion this is one of the best 
live versions of the track out there.

The best thing about the glastonbury show that year was Peter's reaction to 
somebody heckling in the corwd just before Trugannini and his go at the 
music press before they break into a scorching version of bullroarer.

Actually, if anybody happens to have this show on CD, I'd be interested in 
getting a copy as mine is on a very old (often played) tape which I'm 
worried may get chewed any day.
