TOTP2: Xmas 2011

Mark Radcliffe digs deep into the Top of the Pops archives for some familiar and unfamiliar festive footage. Classic Christmas hits include Wham!'s Last Christmas, Fairy Tale of New York by Shane MacGowan and Kirsty MacColl, Merry Christmas Everyone from Shakin' Stevens and Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmas Time. Plus there's rare footage of Ringo Starr performing his 1971 solo hit It Don't Come Easy, John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Happy Xmas (War Is Over) and previously lost footage of David Bowie performing The Jean Genie. More recent acts include Coldplay, Adele, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Amy Winehouse.
