1984: "Holiday" on 'Top Of The Pops' London




So here's Madonna's first ever appearance on UK TV!

At the time "Top of The Pops" was the biggest music show on British Television - braodcasting every Thursday evening on BBC1, back when multi-channel TV in the UK was just a dream and pop music videos and performances on the box were quite a treat!

Madonna appeared on the show broadcast Thursday January 26th 1984, having taped her performance 2 days earlier at the famous BBC Television Centre in West London.

Accompanied as ever by brother Christopher and Erica Bell, she lip-synched and danced her way through "Holiday" - and here it is from a re-broadcast in 2004.
