Updated 27 July 2004, 22.15
Top Of The Pops logo
Busted and Girls Aloud will be among the performers when Top Of The Pops makes history on Friday.

The show will be the first live outside broadcast for the music programme since it was launched in 1964.

Will Young and Jamelia are also set to strut their stuff on the show, taking place at Baltic Square on Gateshead Quays in England's North East.

The hour-long show is being called Top Of The Pops: Alfresco. It comes after the show was revamped last year.

Top Of The Pops was originally transmitted from a converted church in Manchester.

Regular fixture

It was supposed to run for just six episodes, but 40 years later it's still a regular fixture on our screens!
