I have a feeling it's a repeat airing.
It was repeated on ABC here in Australia a couple of weeks back.
I don't think it is, that show had peter mike and michael being interviewed whereas this one is just mike and michael. Also it didnt feature any parkinson or jools holland performances whereas this one does. The show you're refering to was pretty much just TOTP performances, an old grey whistle test performance and that was it really. Here's a copy of the tv guide, 2hrs of R.E.M. in total:
(secretly wishing they show some glastonbury!)

R.E.M. AT THE BBC (21:30):
In September 2011 R.E.M., the rock band from Athens, Georgia, decided to call it a day after 31 years. This collection from the BBC archives includes performances of Pretty Persuasion from the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1984, Orange Crush on Top of the Pops in 1989 and special acoustic versions of Losing My Religion and Half a World Away on The Late Show in 1991, along with performances on Later with Jools Holland and Parkinson. Also, vocalist Michael Stipe and bassist Mike Mills reflect on the band ending.
LATER... WITH JOOLS HOLLAND (R.E.M.) (22:30):
Special edition featuring rock band R.E.M. live in the studio and in conversation with Jools Holland. The band perform songs from their album Up, plus some old favourites.
