Toyah on TV: TOTP: The Story Of 1976

August 6th, 2012

Top Of The Pops: The Story of 1976: BBC4
Fri 10th Aug: 11.20pm/Sat 11th Aug: 3.10am/Mon 13th Aug: 1.25am

Documentary examining how the BBC’s flagship pop show reflected changes in British music and culture during 1976. As the popularity of glam rock faded, no dominant musical scene emerged to replace it, leading to chart success for bands including Abba, Showaddywaddy, the Brotherhood of Man and the Wurzels – while outside the mainstream, punk rock was rapidly growing in popularity. Featuring contributions by Tony Blackburn, Paul Morley, Toyah Willcox, David Hamilton and Dave Haslam.
