There are 4 entities simply called ‘Top of the Pops’.
- “Top of the Pops” (tt0139803) UK
- “Top of the Pops” (tt4271950) UK
- “Top of the Pops” (tt0852509) Germany
- “Top of the Pops” (tt0092466) USA
The last two can be ignored for the purposes of this question.
The first one is the one most people would expect to find –
- ran from 1964 to 2016
- 2102 episodes
The second one is a problem.
According to its entry, it ran from 1993 to 1998 and had 0 episodes. There are three cast members, but no crew members. A little further reading shows that it was released on 29th of July 1993 and was episode No. 1536 of the first program.
Looking at the episodes in the first program, there is already an episode with the same date (tt0731109), but with three different cast members. The cast members are not a problem because it is likely that both episodes have incomplete casts.
So, what can be done to remedy this situation?
Should the entry, “Top of the Pops” (tt4271950), be deleted? If it is
deleted, should its cast members be added to the other episode? Would there be some
attempt at proving they were on this episode? Or would it be taken at face
Can the episodes be merged?
