    The Story of Pan's People: Why Babs, Cherry, Dee Dee & Ruth were Top of the Pops.

    When Top of the Pops began in the sixties, it brought some of the biggest names in music into people's living rooms. It made stars of its in house dance troupe, Pans People. In an era before music videos, the dancers were hired to fill in for absent bands but in the process the six members of Pans People became better known than many of the records they danced to.

    Bill and Susanna chatted to original members Babs Powell, Dee Dee Wilde and Ruth Pearson.
