The Sex Pistols' infamous 1976 appearance on the early evening Bill Grundy show, when they outraged a nation with their four-letter tirade, heralded the arrival of punk rock. This comedy takes a wry look at the stories surrounding the appearance from Johnny Rotten answering viewers complaints to Freddie Mercury's role in giving the Sex Pistols notoriety.

As part of a new Sky Arts partnership, casting for this programme is drawn from the National Youth Theatre.
