Top Of The Swaps

O-V-A-H! Top Of The Pops, BBC1, 7pm
Tonight marks good old TOTP's last appearance on BBC1 before it coasts gently into its dotage on BBC2. But don't fret – from next Sunday you can expect a winning mix of classic clips, acts from the Radio 2 playlist and a roster of guest presenters that includes Jeremy Clarkson and Phill Jupitus. Aaaaaargh! It's a sad reflection of the state of modern pop that what should be the country's flagship music show is being relegated to a dreadful slot on a minority channel. We feel particularly sorry for anyone out there who might happen to work for TOTP's spin-off magazine, as redundancy can surely not be far off.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
