End of an era!

Guess where I ended up tonight?

In Studio Three of BBC Television Centre, trying to muscle my way into shot on the final ever Top of the Pops!!

To be honest, it was a bit of an anti-climax. There were no bands, only video clips, and an array of aging TOTP presenters.

Surely they could have managed to book someone on the show - if not Robbie or Madonna, I'm sure Chico would have done it.

In the end, though, it was quite a nostalgic night. The staff were very emotional (although speculating that they'd be back within two years) and the presenters seemed genuinely fond of the show they were saying goodbye to.

"Maybe we should just say 'See you next week'," laughed Mike Read as they prepared to read out the closing link.
