Welcome to the Top of the Pops archive!

Welcome to the unofficial home of Top of the Pops, the long running BBC Music UK chart show that regularly ran from 1964 to 2006.
From artist appearances to showing times - it's all listed on our extensive encyclopedia of all things TOTP.

As you may have seen the TOTP Archive is currently being finalised. You may notice some graphical rendering issues whilst we transition to a new platform. We hope to be fully up and running soon. Thank you for your support!
