Roman Holliday – “Don’t Try To Stop It” (32)
The show has a holiday feel tonight so who better to get us underway with what became their only top 30 hit, peaking at number 14.
The Mary Jane Girls – “All Night Long” (24)
Also their only top 30 hit, making it to number 13. But edited out of tonight's 7.30 showing.
Iron Maiden – “The Trooper” (12) (video)
Loud, scary and at its peak.
Freeez – “IOU” (5)
At last a routine on BBC4 for Zoo! And with some human pyramid help from the Hassani Troupe, to help lift IOU up to number 2.
ELO – “Rock ‘N’ Roll Is King” (14) (video)
Went up one more place. But edited out of the 7.30 show.
The Cure – “The Walk” (34)
Became their biggest hit to date when it peaked at number 12. But a better song was soon to follow. Miaow.

Just the one hit, and this was it. Peaked at number 18.

The first single from their number one album, Touch, it peaked at number 3. This performance was pre-recorded in the studio on June 29th.
