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.

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!
