Top Of The Pop's goodbye taped

Published: 2006-07-27
Legendary UK music show Top of the Pops has filmed its final episode.

Though it was recorded on July 26, the final episode of the long running TV show isn't to air until July 30. The once popular TV show has been running for 42 years before ending due to lagging ratings.

The show will be hosted by the first TOTP host Sir Jimmy Saville alongside Fearne Cotton. Other previous hosts Dave Lee Travis, Pat Sharp, Mike Read and Tony Blackburn will also make appearances.

The show will feature a mix of performances and interviews from the TOTP archives over the past 42 years.

The first show was filmed on New Years Day in 1964 and according to Gigwise, "The show featured performances from some little known acts like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Dusty Springfield."
