A memorable moment came when the British group All About Eve made their first appearance on the show in August 1988, to perform their new single Martha's Harbour. As the song began playing, a technical error meant that everybody apart from the group could hear it, resulting in lead singer Julianne Regan simply sitting on stage unaware she was supposed to be singing. By the time she was informed the song was playing, it was almost over, resulting in Regan only actually performing the last verse. The group were invited back on the following week, with Regan choosing to sing live. See more »
i was born in 1967 so i can remember watching top of the pops from the early seventies to its peak which was the early 1980s. beyond that i think it has gone downhill which is a shame because it is our longest running show in great Britain and to watch it in 2006 is so disappointing. the presenters for a start don't fit bring back Reggie Yates! he is cool and his face fits! and Ferne cotton is OK but the rest! get rid! i think totps best era was in the middle 60's IE 1966-1969 and then from 1970-1971
after that in my opinion it had lost its appeal and by the way, the BBC shouldn't have wiped all those 60s editions of totps. time has shown that people like to re watch the old black and white editions. plus there was so many good groups and singers around in those days!
