24th - 27th May
Bill Grundy's fall from grace due to that interview with the Sex Pistols on Thames TV's Today program and what he did next. We meet TV presenter Bill Grundy three years after his profanity-littered, car-crash interview with the Sex Pistols live on tea-time TV in 1976. An erudite, driven man, but with a huge self-destructive streak, Bill struggles to keep his career going. He reflects on how his career turned from being the era’s Paxman into a 70s Partridge, how he inadvertently kick-started a cultural movement he abhors and why that Today interview continues to haunt him.
