Only one other major clanger: the comment that TOTP didn't know how to deal with Siouxsie & The Banshees so they layered their performance with special effects. Clearly someone hadn't done their research as that clip is a promo video - the Banshees never performed 'Hong Kong Garden' live in the studio, as I recall ...
There was another dropped bollock in the documentary. The story of Captain Sensible not being allowed to be in drag on TOTP was brought up - but that wasn't in 1978, it was in 1979, when The Damned had a hit with Love Song and Captain wanted to wear full bridal outfit alongside Vanian dressed as the groom...
