Blast From the Past: “The London Weekend Show: Punk” (1976 documentary)

In 1976, British journalist and TV presenter Janet Street-Porter made a TV documentary regarding the some of the earliest moments of punk rock.  Broadcast on November 22nd, 1976 as part of “The London Weekend Show”, Janet’s film “Punk” features interviews with The Sex Pistols (with Glen Matlock still in the line up), a little band called The Clash, and Siouxsie Sioux. The documentary also features the Sex Pistols performing “Pretty Vacant”, “Submission”, “Anarchy in the UK” and “No Fun”.

You can watch the documentary here. It’s particularly fun to watch if you were too young to experience the 70’s punk scene and want to get a feel for how things used to be before the Internet.
