“The Filth and the Fury” to quote the British press at the time concerning Bill Grundy’s interview with the Sex Pistols certainly had an impact – good for boosting the Pistols profile, bad for Grundy as his career was destroyed by it.

This show closely examines the entire interview and the fallout that resulted from it, and features people there at the time such as Pistols members Glen Matlock. However, if you want a more light-hearted take on encounter, earlier on at 9pm there is an Urban Myths comedy about the interview starring Steve Pemberton as Grundy.

Anarchy on Thames is on Sky Arts at 21.30.
