Storyline

In 1979, Top of the Pops celebrated its 800th edition, and also saw the show record its highest audience of 19 million viewers. 1979 is maybe the most diverse year ever for acts on Top of the Pops with disco at its peak, new wave, 2 Tone, reggae, rock, folk and New Romantic records all making the top five. This program looks at the year in which the traditional Top of the Pops MoR clashed head on with New Wave, and the UK was falling apart with almost continuous strikes. Written by mrdario64
