Top Of The Pops is not set for a partial return next month.
The BBC have been in tocuh with us to point out that the format is not being brought back and will be the straight chart show format.
‘This is the Chart Show for the 21st century. I’m very excited about this innovation. Young people will be logging on to listen, watch and take part in the show. I hope that this will be to our young listeners what listening to the chart and waiting to record your favourite pop songs was for another generation.’
The legendary show, which defined British pop culture for 42 years before being cut by the BBC in 2006 will be returning ‘on line’ on Sunday February 26th.
BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart show was rumoured to have been revamped in a style similar to Top Of The Pops next month.
The hour long programme chart show programme will show videos of the Top 10 and viewers will be able interact with the show via Facebook and Twitter.
Once, Top Of The Pops was the key programme in pop culture; but with the death of the charts it’s meaning has become muted. It’s a welcome semi return though.
Is this enough?
DO we still need Top Of The Pops?
Do the singles charts mean anything anymore?
