  1. That’s brilliant news Richard,i can now watch a decent copy of it when it gets released on dvd instead of a grainy vhs video recorded off the tv when channel 4 showed it

  2. Wasn’t that owned by Dave Clark (5) at one time. He earned millions from the show. I’d love to see a collection of all surviving footage of TOTP. I hear much of it is lost! Sad.

  3. Was Cilla Black, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Patty, Klaus and Gibson ever on RSG or TOTPs???
