Question-when did TOTP change to 30 minute episodes from the (was it 40 minute) episodes, and on the BBC4 repeats, when was the last time that they showed a full length episode?
TOTP became a fixed 30 minutes in September 1985 when an East End soap opera was moved into the 7.30-8.00 slot, so TOTP was forced to slot in before it. Before that it would normally vary between 30 and 45 minutes depending on what else was in the schedule that week.
