Abstract

Clad in a gold-lamé tracksuit, jacket unzipped to reveal a blue T-shirt emblazoned with the broadcast dates of the BBC's long-running pop music show Top of the Pops (1964-2006), presenter Jimmy Savile returned, aged 80, to co-host its final installment.  So iconic was his relationship with the show that he was given the honor of symbolically turning off the studio lights for the final time.
