AboutTop of the Pops, also known as TOTP, was a British music chart television programme, made by the BBC and originally broadcast weekly between 1 January 1964 and 30 July 2006. It was traditionally shown every Thursday evening on BBC1, except for a short period on Fridays in mid-1973 before being again moved to Fridays in 1996, and then to Sundays on BBC Two in 2005. Each weekly programme consisted of performances from some of that week's best-selling popular music artists, with a rundown of that week's singles chart. Additionally, there was a special edition of the programme on Christmas Day (and usually, until 1984, a second such edition a few days after Christmas), featuring some of the best-selling singles of the year.
Given its high viewing ratings, it is of little surprise the show became a staple of British Pop Culture. Although the main show was cancelled in 2006, the Christmas special continues. It also survives as Top of the Pops 2, which began in 1994 and features vintage performances from the Top of the Pops archives.
All albums of TOTP feature some of the best-performing songs of their respective year and can still be purchased today, usually as CD format. They are published by Virgin/EMI Gold.
