Show Summary
Top Of The Pops shimmied onto our TV screens on New Year's Day 1964, armed with hordes of a scary new faction called 'young people' and presented by cigar-chomping tracksuit-model Jimmy Savile (although he was relatively normal back then). If that wasn't enough to scare the bejesus out of parents across the nation, the show was shot live, and in its first edition featured such greats as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield and the Hollies.

And here's a shocker for the uninitiated, although the early shows were live, the acts actually MIMED to their songs! Lost for words? So were they! Sadly, the first ever show is lost to history forever, but hey, that miming thing really took off, eh?
