In a way, yes. I assume this is the 1979 Ceefax pages you can see. I get this when I record TOTP on my DVD/HD recorder and rip to mpg files.

This is probably the worst mullering of a song by the Top of the Pops Orchestra that I've heard yet. Sometimes I wonder if the BBC had it in for disco, as it was the disco songs that seemed to be...

The contest has been won by the final song 7 times, more than any other position. Admittedly none of these were in televoting days. I don't have stats with me, but from memory 1977, 1982, 1983 and...

Only one of the best, classiest disco singers of the 1970s. A lady with a lot of style, and still singing now. It's unfortunate that her only Top 40 hit in the UK was a cover that was designed to get...

No, sadly. We get a Legs & Co version two weeks later (that we'll see next week due to the aforementioned 03/05/79 being Yewtreed). The song reached its peak a week later and then fell.
