Mark Lamarr presents a profile of punk band Buzzcocks, whose stinging, melodic bursts of longing and wit hyperactivated the late-70s charts with singles like What Do I Get?, I Don't Mind and, most iconically, Ever Fallen in Love (with Someone You
Shouldnt've). This programme recalls the band's initial success, the split that followed and their resuscitation in the late 80s. Contributors include band members Pete Shelley, Steve Diggle, John Maher, Steve Garvey, Howard Devoto, Tony Barber and Phil Barker, plus Paul Morley and Anthony H Wilson.
