Guess this will be the Clash footage, that Don Letts filmed of all their performances at the Roxy. Clash segments are also on DVD too: 'Punk Rock Movie'-Don Letts

But only segments. This is supposed to be the rest of the footage that wasn't used in that doc.
I hope so anyway. :grin:

Good to see the BBC tapping into that demographic over the festive season.

I recorded this and as I started watching it the other day I wondered if the recorder had malfunctioned. Eventually the band appeared so I figured not. Hard going though, not sure I can be bothered sitting through all of it.

Have to agree with Droopsnoot. I got bored with this keep cutting to news of the day features etc became easily distracted.

I stopped watching... terrible, and nonsensical.

I quite liked the band footage but the cockneys :P talking about the good old days with stock footage was just filler and unnecessary.

Still grateful for it mind. Probably the only decent thing I saw all Xmas on the box.

Well, I got to the end of this. I must say the most interesting bits for me were the street scenes - being a bit of a classic car fan I'm always looking out for what's parked in the background with films from that era - I wasn't expecting to see the Clash stood next to an early Vauxhall Firenza with a dent in the front wing. You'd really have to be a massive Clash fan to be watching for the terrible sound of the gig and practice footage though.

An interesting and entertaining historical artefact.
But I don't think it would bear repeat viewings.

All that greasy 1970's hair, flowery dresses and fat ties....disgusting. :lol:
