Chic, Jackson Five, Donna Summer and more star in this compilation of classic disco on the Beeb.
Last night, the BBC sorted through their vast archives to present an hour of the very best disco performances on the official broadcaster. The show is a testament to disco’s chart explosion of the late 1970s, featuring hits from the unflappable Chic, the stunning Donna Summer and a young Michael Jackson donning a policeman’s hat during a live performance with the Jackson 5 in 1979. What’s also great is the inclusion of tracks by one-hit wonders and lesser known acts like Dundee’s very own Rokotto – killing it on Top of the Pops with their manifesto jam Funk Theory.
Make some space and get down with ‘Disco on the BBC’ available on iPlayer now and for the next six days.
