The records themselves are not subject to copyright as far as titles, etc go - unless you include images of the artwork. My view, am not a trained lawyer and this is not legal advice.
    I used Billboard, Cashbox and Music Vendor/Record World, allocated chart points in the same way that they did to compile the BBC chart so the end product looks nothing like the source charts. The differences between the charts was much greater in some cases than the source charts for the BBC charts. It would be interesting to see how anyone could file a copyright claim but the ingenuity of the legal profession means one must exercise an abundance of caution. I wouldn’t for example do as Mr Tibbs has done and quote the data from the source charts. I wonder who has copyright for the BBC Chart.

Although my method for eliminating ties was much more ruthless, I still had to tolerate some tied positions. I am thinking of putting my work into book form and selling it as an ebook. This is something you should seriously consider in respect of your own magnificent effort which I have been following with great interest. If we did publish books containing our average charts, would we be in breach of copyright? Could we be subject to legal action? Have you ever considered this point? Once again your work is to be commended.

    Brian, thanks again for all your hard dedicated work on this super duper thread !! I can't believe it's been 2 years on this adventure, wow !! Time sure does fly by, getting faster the older we get... So many good comments and thoughts and input by so many, it was a real historical educational experience for all of us. (I just wish Alan Smith had been here to party with us along the way. He's still out there, I heard from him about 2 months ago.)

    If the British Library have put the RMs on microfilm by now your job will be a lot easier, as you'll be able to zap the pages to your email.
    I never thought on that Splodj but I will find out for sure as that would make it quicker and easier. Thanks for that useful hint.

    Thanks for the thread MrTibbs. It has been a great read. The amount of work you have put into the thread over the past two years has been immense and is much appreciated. Now, put your feet up and have a few weeks rest before you head down to London to obtain those dealer charts!

    It should say 30 rather than 20 for the UAC on the bridging chart for the December 28th 1968 chart for Donovan.

    I do hope you mean up to March 1962, wouldn't want you to miss a year of work

    I do have one small, possibly cheeky, request. The only charts I am missing are the RM album charts so if you are scanning can you catch them as well
    Yeah Brain I will scan the album charts too. I said March 61 because unfortunately RM stopped publishing the dealer charts then grrr

    Thanks again for creating this thread and seeing it through to the end. What a mammoth undertaking. Hopefully, I caught most (all?) of the errors for you....
    Glad to hear you're going to be able to get to London sooner rather than later in preparation for your next mammoth project!
    I'll certainly miss checking this thread every day (though of course the Record Mirror thread will take its place once started :-))!

    .. and there they are guys, the UAC 1955 to 1969 week by week. I hope I have achieved what I set out to do just over 2 years ago, revisit history, take the BBC charts, add another level to make them more robust, re-compile them to remove errors, and deliver an averaged chart fit for that era.

    That was my role, but it was by no means a one man show. I need to thank every one of you 24 guys who liked and followed this thread from beginning to end. 24 likes is a fantastic achievement on this site. The thread to date has over 130,000 views. In my wildest hopes at the outset I never believed I would achieve anything near that but you all made sure it happened.

    I do need to take this opportunity at the end of this thread to single out and sincerely thank a few names in particular who put their shoulder to the wheel and advised me, supported me through thick, thin, moments of frustration with data etc to make it to the end of this journey.

    RokinRobin - Without him this project would simply not have happened. He devised the spreadsheet for it and amended it along the way as necessary for changes. He also offered hints and tips along the way on what data might be useful in the thread.
    Kingofskiffle - Assisted me with technical help for the thread, advised me as I progressed on chart matters, and gave various mentions to the UAC in his excellent '70 Years Of UK Singles Charts' books
    Kjell - Supplied me with missing chart data and gave lots of practical advice.
    Braindeadpj - This is the guy with a sharp eye for detail without whom some errors would have slipped through the net. He was my safety net for any errors I missed and advised me on corrections needed to ensure the UAC is spot on on accuracy.
    Splodj - Possesses a wealth of background music knowledge, facts, and interesting anecdotes and shared these with us on a daily basis to enrich the chart numbers being presented and make it much more interesting.

    Many others contributed almost daily too, Robbie, Brian, Membrane, Gambo, Metal, to name but a few and there are so many others who made valuable contributions along the way. To each and every one of you a big, big, thanks for following and 'liking' this.

    So this thread ends, but, give me a few weeks to get my breath back and then I'll be back too with a brand new thread 'The Record Mirror Dealer Return Chart' listing every record charted by a dealer and submitted to RM. This will replace my earlier rather crude version which was compiled using a notebook and calculator as the new version will be spreadsheet led with a potential for a Top 50 and possibly Top 100 but not fixed to those numbers if titles exceed those.
    It's a massive undertaking as by the mid fifties I will be drawing data from around 60 dealer charts, all to be input with every record appearing on them.

    FINALLY, some breaking news for you. As you know I had to put this project on hold due to delays in getting to London and due to Covid for two years to extract the raw data from The Newspaper Library as I only currently have the first year of data.
    Well I can now advise it is about to happen. I'm now booked to go down for 5 days from 1st August this year to collect the remainder of the data till its conclusion in March 1961.

    Yip ! It's about to happen !

    *RR did not compile a chart this week so an average position was taken of likely chart position for this non compiled week by taking a mid point position between the chart for 25th December 1965 and the chart for 8th January 1966 for RR in order to compile a 'bridging' chart for the week of 1st January 1966 to compile the Ultimate Averaged Chart.
