Comments: One of those docs where the host inserts herself way too much, but it's mostly short clips that jump all over -- and clips I wouldn't have chosen. Second hour is full song performances with no host. Some good stuff there but it's outside the new wave punk world, like King Crimson and Japan. Both exquisite (if you're into them)

Summary: The programme includes The Damned’s set-smashing performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test and the Sex Pistols' anarchic trip on the Thames. It also features powerful live performances from Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Gang of Four, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Tubeway Army, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Soft Cell, The Selecter, Joy Division and the Au Pairs. In addition, there are gems from The New York Dolls, The Fall, Blondie, Pete Shelley, The Police, Devo, X-Ray Spex, Klaus Nomi, Laurie Anderson and many more.
