In this mixture of drama and black comedy, we meet TV presenter Bill Grundy some three years after his profanity-littered, car-crash interview with the Sex Pistols live on teatime 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 1970s Partridge, and we get to understand how Bill inadvertently kick-started a cultural movement he abhors, and why that Today interview continues to haunt him.
