home footage

We were incredibly excited when we received our first bit of home footage, three punk causing trouble in a High Wycombe back garden miming to The Sex Pistols.

As we receive more public submissions as part of our Grown Up In Britain campaign, we would love to see more home footage and other video. Whether you're rocking out with your mates or hanging out with your family, they help tell the story of growing up in Britain.

Punk Gif

We're the wannabe punks in the top photo, it was summer holiday 1981, we were 15 years old and were filmed on cine camera miming to Pretty Vacant. None of us had any musical ability but named ourselves The Symptoms and finally The Brixton Rejex. Our make-believe band never went any further than the back garden…

John, High Wycombe, 1981
