When this programme was created in 1964 its producers chose to have the performers lip sync, rather than sing, their songs. The British Broadcasting Corporation openly stated in its promotion of the show that the performers would lip sync rather than sing. The reason the producers chose to have the performers lip sync, rather than sing, their songs is that they thought lip syncing would be more ethical and honest, as the show promoted the records, and therefore the audience members and the viewers had the right to know exactly how the records sounded.

All it is is music performances and a chart rundown
I tend to switch over when someone rubbish plays. But when someone good plays, I watch. I find the presenters quite annoying, they need comedians like Johnny Vegas not Fearne Cotton! And it's such a BBC programme, it bigs up Lame Academy!
