It's on every week (sex pest DJs permitting) on BBC4 on a Thursday and is 1980 (week by week). It wasn't on tonight as it happens...see what I did there?
It's watching the BBC4 TOTP repeats that makes me want it back on telly now. Love or loathe the bands/singers appearing on it (and the less said about the presenters the better), TOTP was always a great little snapshot of what was in the charts at the time. Watching the old shows brings back some great memories, and also some 'wtf' moments when acts who never made it beyond a single appearance pop up. Plus, one of the recent repeated episodes featured the last performance of Bon Scott with AC/DC, recorded just days before he died, so they captured some remarkable pieces of history too.
