On 13 June 1996 BBC1 showed coverage of Switzerland vs Netherlands from Euro '96. Top of the Pops was accordingly moved from the Thursday to Friday, originally as a temporary move to incorporate the BBC's expansive portfolio of sport (as well as Euro '96, the 1996 Summer Olympic Games were also broadcast on the channel that summer), though it soon became clear that the move was permanent and, apart from a couple of one-off occasions on 25 June 1998 and 9 August 2001, TOTP never again returned to its original Thursday night slot.

Famous quotes containing the words guest, celebrity and/or golden:

    This guest of summer,
    The temple-haunting martlet, does approve,
    By his loved mansionry, that the heaven’s breath
    Smells wooingly here.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The hero was distinguished by his achievement; the celebrity by his image or trademark. The hero created himself; the celebrity is created by the media. The hero was a big man; the celebrity is a big name.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    The Maiden caught me in the Wild,
    Where I was dancing merrily;
    She put me into her Cabinet
    And Lock’d me up with a golden Key.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
