Last ever Top of the Pops
The end of an era for television. Amazing to think it used to get 25 million viewers. I suppose we all have memories of watching this show and finding things either really exciting or dire beyond belief. It used to be quite painful watching it but the week you didn't bother would have the Saints or Generation X on. It must have sparked off more rows between parents and their offspring than any other show - 'look at that idiot!' 'He's brilliant, you're the idiot' - that sort of thing. I suppose the last such argument like that in our house was when the Pistols were on doing Pretty Vacant. Happy Days.
