  • Yes I've assumed it was "carpet knife" so nice to be set right after 22 years!

    Interesting about this 'new' 1988 Top 30 in of the '90s series. Could be a revised repeat but not sure; it's billed with a different title which is strange. Ideally it would be a show that actually puts the estimated panel sales for the 30 bestsellers of that year up on the screen - bar the few citations the OCC gave when they published their Top 40 I've been unable to find any sales figures for '88 (and '89) yet every other year from 1981 to 2020 is available, albeit disputed in the case of some years due to premature cut-offs or use of an alternative multiplier or DUS tallies.

      They can't decide what the show is called, anyway, It's been hashtagged / promoted by a different title to the one on screen twice!

      • ^ Yeah good point well-made!

        • Wow Ann Lee looked like she'd been dug up. I had no idea she was from Sheffield, so Sheffield has Arctic Monkeys, Pulp and Ann Lee!

          I feel like Geri Halliwell got snubbed this episode since she managed two number one hits, but interesting despite 4 number ones, Westlife only made the top 30 with their Christmas song. I guess they always went to number one but didn't post big sales usually.

          Shame they're not continuing this, the 00s would still give off plenty of fun nostalgia.

          • More importantly it has The Human League, Heaven 17 and ABC! Caught up with the '99 show last night and yes, she did look a touch raddled! Then again it is unbelievably 22 years ago and I imagine she probably had a fairly heavy '90s on the dance scene - in fact probably '80s too as she'd been doing guest vocals on all sorts of other acts' studio tunes for years before having her one big hit under her own (or a variation on her own) name. I'd only discovered Annerley Gordon and Ann Lee were one and the same person a few months ago when a friend told me. And let's face it, she still wouldn't win the 'most aged-looking contributor to the series' award as long as old Shaun Ryder's on it! He looks like some boozy ex-builder you'd meet down the pub at 4pm of an afternoon! Not that I'd tell him to his face.

            • Hahaha true! And how about Adamski who looks like he'd been chewing on a biro that had leaked down him.

                    It's a trick Channel 5 use all the time for its documentaries - repeating them with a different name to make you think it's a new show. Though changing the name for the first run is very odd. I guess they figured it stands out better in the EPG, where you can't always see the full show name.

                    • The show description in some TV mags was wrong. This is just Suggs introducing videos. They already showed him doing this for another year a few months ago - but that one was broadcast on a Sunday afternoon.

                      • Yes I caught the 1984 edition on a Sunday a while back; I only happened upon it by chance and didn't make a note of the actual programme title and so didn't make the connection with this 1988 equivalent. Whilst it's a decent enough show for a spot of nostalgia and some good stuff amongst it, it seems to bear no relation whatsoever to any year-end chart I'm aware of for any year it covers, and the end credits didn't shed any light on how the so-called Top 30s are put together. One assumes it's a selection put together by the producers of what they liked to believe were the biggest hits - could even just be their personal playlists for all we know!

                          More likely what they could get the rights to show for the budget they had....

                      • Indeed; a more intelligent supposition Lonnie. As to ordering of what they could get though, it seems pretty random apart from the very obvious biggest-shifters appearing in the Top 5.

                        • They were not using the MIRB charts either for 1988. I looked at the best sellers and it wasn't the same.

                          • Just another made-up chart for their convenience Graham I think.
