History

Top Of The Pops (common acronym TOTP) is a British popular music television programme, broadcast on the BBC from 1964 to present.
It's format follows the UK singles chart top 40, of which the current positions are announced throughout the show.
Most of the broadcasts were from BBC Television Centre, located in west London, England.
It's presenters were BBC Radio One DJ's for most of it's run, including Janice Long and John Peel.
The show was broadcast weekly until viewing figures began to fall in the early 2000's, and after moving from BBC1 to BBC2, the decision was made to axe the regular show in 2006 .
Since then only occasional 'specials' have been made, such as the Christmas Day TOTP, which is still running.
