Beat Club (1972 editions)
Captain Beefheart on Beat ClubKing Crimson on Beat ClubDeep Purple on Beat Club 1972
1972 produced a largely disappointing crop with no performances of particular note until the June edition which threw up two absolute corkers - Captain Beefheart getting down and dirty and a real screamer from Deep Purple. King Crimson made an appearance in November before the series bowed out on a serious bum trip showcasing, of all people, The Osmonds! The whole of the final show was devoted to them, a decision perhaps intended to disgust loyal viewers to the point that they wouldn't bother writing in to complain that Beat Club was being taken off the air. Four days later the first edition of its' replacement, the more pop orientated "Musikladen", was premiered.

Top of the Pops (1972 editions)
David Bowie and Mick Ronson, TOTP 1972Alice Cooper on TOTP 1972Roxy Music on TOTP 1972
Noel Edmonds joined the show in July and TOTP was now back to rotating four regular presenters as it had done in the 1960's (The other current presenters being Jimmy Savile, Tony Blackburn and Ed Stewart). 1972 saw glam rock come to the fore, perfectly suiting the party atmosphere of Top of the Pops whilst dazzling the rapidly increasing number of viewers watching in colour. These were peak years for the series, yet only three editions from 1972 survive (and one of these is incomplete) although there are a fair number of orphaned clips including all of the most important performance's of the year: David Bowie "Starman", Alice Cooper "School's Out", Roxy Music "Virginia Plain" and four appearance's apiece by T.Rex and Slade.
