: Top of the Pops

A new look at Britain's best-sellers.
Discs-Stars-News from this week's Top Twenty.
Introduced tonight by Alan Freeman.

Top of the Pops at 7.30
Alan Freeman, the occupant of the jockey's saddle for this week's Top of the Pops, is a young man who is busily enjoying a long, long holiday. Once a budding accountant in his native Australia he left the ledgers to try his luck in commercial radio there, then dropped that too to take a short vacation in London. That was six years ago, and he is still here. His first 'holiday task' included odd television appearances and a stint as resident announcer for a commercial radio station, but after three years he landed the Dee Jay's job in the Light Programme's Pick of the Pops.
He is still holding down that job as well as his place on the rota for the television show.


Presenter: Alan Freeman

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
