The BBC could drop its archive repeats of Top Of The Pops in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
BBC4 controller Richard Klein said today he had not come to a decision about whether to continue the programmes next year.
The channel has been showing programmes from 1976 onwards, in sequence, and next year it would have been due to screen editions from 1978.
Klein said: "At the moment we haven't actually scheduled 1978. We've only done it the last two years so if we didn't do it again it wouldn't be the end of the world, and audience figures have declined."
