Newcastle based Tyne Tees decided to grab some of the Something Else audience, with their own show featuring music, interviews and articles on youth culture and the problems they faced.

Among the bands featured were The Idols, The Toy Dolls, but it was Public Image Limited who gave the show any reason to remember it when they were invited. They played one new song followed by an ill-tempered chat with Chris Cowey and Lyn Spencer, leading to John Lydon's walk out.
