Heavy Metal Britannia: Last evening was pretty good, and great seeing some metal on TV. As Motorhead came to fame right on the end of heavy metal as such, but at the start of the NWOBHM and Punk, so too was Lemmy's (short) interview at the end of the programme.
A follow-on show from 10.30 until 11.00 had a clip form each band featured. The Motorhead clip was 'Louie Louie' from Top of the Pops in 1978. This was a gem, as video recorders were expensive and uncommon, so the clip was finally aired and made available. (So if it wasn't before, it'll probably be on You Tube by now.)
