Retro : BBC – Punk Britannia 2 – 1976-1978

The second programme in the BBC series ‘Punk Britannia‘ showed how rapidly the movement developed and imploded just as quick. As the show stated “Welcome to boring Britain. A young generation has been locked out“! How Punk at first was the outsider and then manufactured by society, the media and the record industry. It was a far more interesting programme bringing together such bands as Stiff Little Fingers, Buzzcocks, The Jam, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Sham 69. The latter of which acquired an unwanted following by fascist movements. In contrast the programme also highlighted the integration of Punk and Reggae that was championed by such bands as The Clash.  As Siouxsie said, “Once something becomes easy to copy, then it loses its power“!
