Bob Marley and the Wailers: Top Of The Pops

Top of the Pops, also known as TOTP, is a British music chart television program, made by the BBC and originally broadcast weekly between 1 January 1964 and 30 July 2006. It was traditionally shown every Thursday evening on BBC One, before being moved to Fridays in 1996, and then moved to Sundays on BBC Two in 2005. Each weekly program consisted of performances from some of that week’s best-selling popular music artists, with a rundown of that week’s singles chart. Additionally, every year there was a special edition of the program on Christmas Day featuring some of the best-selling singles of the year.
