NB The Jimi Hendrix Experience lose a lump of hash down a dressing room sink plug hole but manage to retrieve it in time for a pre-show smoke, leading to an erratic, but legendary performance. Stanley Dorfman, the shows' producer wanted the band to accompany Lulu on a version of To Sir With Love after they had performed Hey Joe, but they veered off-piste into a cover of Sunshine Of Your Love instead, scuppering the intended duet and leading to a BBC ban. According to the NME everybody went back to Maurice Gibb's home where he had recorded the show on video tape for a playback.

BBC1 Top Of The Pops 7:30 - 8:00 pm

NB It's about this time that The Kinks record a clip of their new single Plastic Man for Top Of The Pops, but the clip is not used. From Melody Maker 3rd May 1969 "We did an Ampex for Top of the Pops and they have decided not to use it," said an embittered Ray Davies this week. "They listened to the words and when I reached that word they shifted the camera off me. It's all very childish and I'm sure everybody who watches Top of the Pops already knows what a bum is. They even asked me to sing 'thumb' instead. It was so ridiculous and very upsetting. What makes it so absurd is that we did it on Dee Time and the record is getting played on Radio One without any complaints."

BBC1 Pop Go The Sixties! 10:35 - 11:50 pm

NB The Bee Gees, The Dave Clark Five and Engelbert Humperdinck were scheduled to appear in the show. Dusty Springfield dropped out from the final running order due to illness but is still listed in the credits. She was due to perform You Don't Have To Say You Love Me and an introduction was recorded by the hosts. Cilla Black also had to cancel pre-recording due to illness and was eventually represented with an existing TV cip.

A co-production between the BBC and ZDF in West Germany and co-presented by German actress Elfi von Kalckreuth. Many of the songs used were also hits in Germany.

Although not strictly speaking a Top of the Pops show it utilises some of the show's set design from the Christmas Day show and The Ascot Dancers appear to be the same troupe used on the Top of the Pops '69 Christmas shows.

Hosted by Jimmy Savile, Elfi von Kalckreuth

BBC2 The Fabulous Elvis 8:45 - 9:35 pm (the NBC special from 1968)

NB Although the Elvis Presley fan club had been petitioning for this to be shown in the UK the BBC claimed back in the Spring that NBC had told them that it was "not available for showing in this country yet." It's likely that Col Parker was hoping that competition between BBC and ITV would drive the price up, but it didn't work. Rights then reverted from NBC to the Singer Sewing Machine company, the show's sponsor, which meant that negotiations had to start all over again.
