Pop Goes the Sixties was a farewell to a vibrant fun decade in music and enertainment generally.
The BBC and the German broadcaster ZDF, Utilised the BBC's London studio's, for this co-Production and was a trek through the smorgasbord world of pop music featuring performers who found success during that decade. They included the likes of The Who, The Shadows, The KInk's, Lulu and The Beatles (in archive footage) The show was made in colour with an appearance by Tom Jones in black and white on a screen in the studio. UK television had moved over to colour broadcasting by this time and fortunately it exists in that form today unlike the majority of Top of the pop's show's which this programme apes in it's look, indeed very little of the weekly TOTP from this period exist in any form.
It went out on New years eve at around 10.30pm and it is a great record of an exciting time in popular music, I just wish their was more kept to enjoy today.
