"It's still Number One, it's Top of the Pops!" On New Year's Day, 1964, the first ever Top of the Pops was broadcast live from Manchester on BBC1 - 38 years later, it is celebrating its 2000th edition.

This is the true story behind the stars, the fans and the changing faces of the UK's favourite music show.For nearly four decades, the greatest stars in music have been queuing up to appear on Top of the Pops - from the youthful Rolling Stones, through the outrageous antics of The Who, and sexy divas like Madonna, Janet Jackson and Britney, the show has seen it all.

This book opens the lid on the controversy that surrounded Top of the Pops from the very beginning, featuring hundreds of quotes from musicians and programme-makers.
