Part 1 of 6. In 1995, PBS (& Hugh Thompson & Robert Palmer, the critic not the musician) produced a comprehensive series on the history of rock and roll. While there were other documentaries produced at that time with the same name, this one is superior & harder to find. I think it is a terrific primer on the origins of punk & the influence of reggae on music in the 1970s. In 1995, many of the original people in the scene were still around to tell their stories. This episode of punk was part 9 in the overall series.

Sorry for the VHS quality, but maybe that contributes to the punk aesthetic.
