If you have been following the 1977 pop charts on a Thursday evening on BBC 4

(if you havent then 1930ish Thursday and repeated 0000ish Friday with another rerun Saturday evening. Three weeks out of four with the fourth week slot taken by Sky At Night)

this weeks show has a bit of a story behind it. Its the show from 31/3/1977 which was one of many hundreds of shows wiped by the BBC in the 1970's / 1980's. This particular show was one of several missing shows returned from the personal archive of "Diddy" David Hamilton a while back. It wasnt going to be shown at all until about a week ago until there was a campaign from the folks on the "Missing Episodes" forum, and the Beeb have bowed to pressure to slot it into the schedules.

I was looking at the missing eps list for Top Of The Pops a few days ago and its tragic just how little is left from before 1976.

I have really enjoyed these, mostly on the iplayer, agreed how sad they wiped so many tapes!
