30th Anniversary Special

30th Anniversary Special image

Smashie and Nicey (Harry Enfield & Paul Whitehouse) celebrate the 30th anniversary of Top of the Pops, and pay tribute to this triumphant survivor from the days when the Beatles topped the chart with I Wanna Hold Your Hand. Three poptastic decades surrender their fab sounds, their hits, and their haircuts, for our nostalgic enjoyment - from the Moptops to Take That, from the Stones to Madonna.
