Thanks for that. I canít help wondering how those acts would score if it was a Pointless question. There are a lot of fairly obvious names on that list plus a few (e.g. Duffy) whose success was fairly brief.

Simon -- My brothers watch 'Pointless'. I do not.

I'm glad that I don't. On Friday 8th June 2018, the 2nd Host - Richard Osman - 'Tweeted', that 'ABBA Gold' had spent
"22 Years or 1,159 Weeks in the Top 75".
He totally misunderstood that they were its Top 200 Weeks!. (He had 'rounded'
the Years total up. 1,159 divided by 52 = just over 21.7 Years).

It won't even reach 600 Top 75 Weeks until next Week - W/E 7th March.

Unfortunately, 426 people Re-Tweeted his grossly inaccurate 'Tweet'.

I contacted his Secretary about it, but she just ignored me and Richard Osman's silly 'Tweet' is still there...

To be fair to Richard (after all, his brother is in Suede), the OCC don't help matters by showing the top 200 weeks in some places even where they only list the top 75 or top 100. I'm sure most people outside site like this have no idea a top 200 even exists, so naturally assume any "weeks i chart" figure quoted refers to the published chart.
