Top of the Pops is one of the most iconic TV shows of our time – showcasing so many bands and artists over the years and holding a special place in so many hearts. None more so than Richard Martin Lighting’s (RML) as this show was where the company started. So it is still a great privilege for RML to be asked to be involved in the annual Christmas and New Year specials.

This year the shows were filmed at Riverside Studios where all three stages were packed full of vibrant set pieces and lights, as well as some of the best acts around. These included Rudimental, The Saturdays, One Republic and Chase and Status.

Dave Gibson was also reinstated as LD making it even more nostalgic! The vast lighting rig included Sunstrips, Sharpys, Alpha Beam 300’s and 700’s, ROBIN 100 LEDBeams, Mac 500’s, 8-Lites and Mac Auras.

A show of such magnitude, with so much going on throughout, means that it is an ideal opportunity for LDs to try out some of the newer fixtures that are now available. Dave saw this opportunity and took it with both hands using both our Chauvet Nexus 4x4 and RMLs most recent purchase the Philips SL NITRO 510 - a cutting edge LED strobe with six unique control zones, which allow ultimate flexibility, while built-in chases aid creativity and simplicity.
