Trivia

By 2015, due to the BBC's withdrawal of editions featuring appearances of certain disgraced "Top of the Pops" presenters and / or music performers throughout the entire series, making a quantity of unedited repeats impossible, it can be safely assumed that some of the later performance archive compilations "salvage" re-usable performances. This is most obvious with the Christmas compilation editions, where certain Christmas performances have been taken from editions that aren't seen in repeats of the unedited versions, but would have been in the same original editions as certain disgraced presenters and/or performers.

All it is is music performances and a chart rundown
19 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I tend to switch over when someone rubbish plays. But when someone good plays, I watch. I find the presenters quite annoying, they need comedians like Johnny Vegas not Fearne Cotton! And it's such a BBC programme, it bigs up Lame Academy!
