"Their records were quite unacceptable for the average person. They didn't behave, they didn't accept the common rules of decency, so it was important to take out the poison…" - Sir John Read, EMI Chairman

Have a Rotten Xmas…


John Lydon's Megabugs - Fly's
Sunday 26th at 17.00
(repeated Thursday at 20.30)

The Housefly - or should that be Poo-fly - do they deserve their place on the planet? Of course they do, just not in your sandwich. The Fly pollinates more than the Bee, but since Bee's give us honey and Fly's tend to vomit on our food and wipe their shit on us, we don't have the same affection for them, funny that…
With the aid of Dr Watson John also learns that Fly's are helping the FBI solve crime, and visits a hospital where Maggots are stopping the rot for the infected. Perfect Tea-Time viewing!


Viewers might be surprised to see that John doesn't feature in Sunday's '100 Greatest TV Treats of 2004' on Channel 4, but we're not… Maybe he might turn up somewhere else…

John Lydon's Megabugs - Cockroaches
tomorrow, Sunday 19th at 17.00
(repeated Thursday at 20.30)

John goes undercover in search of cock-o-roaches and finds they are every-a-where; sewers, deserts, houses, and (sort of) maybe the moon…
Cockroaches are 300 million years old, the ultimate survivor. Despite the fact they can become a nuisance to humans, they are a megabug to be respected and not feared. Their constant evolution has taught them to be adaptable to a wide variety of situations, and surely that's something we can only learn from…

John Lydon's Megabugs - Termites
tomorrow, Sunday 12th at 17.00
(repeated Thursday at 20.30)

The army of one versus the army of millions… The termite performs a vital job in nature, but is also the most destructive insect on the planet. In pursuit of what makes them tick, or should that be headbang, John gets to grips with some dead wood, not to mention some cow poo. Despite the carnage they can cause to manmade structures, we learn termites are a fascinating mix of good and chaos, just like someone else we know…

Apologies if you experienced some downtime with the site this week, this was due to a server problem, and should not happen again. However, the Forum, will remain closed for the time being while a technical fault is repaired. This hopefully should not take more than a week…

John Lydon's Megabugs - Leeches
today, Sunday 5th at 17.00
(repeated Thursday at 20.30)

"Obnoxious, repulsive and fascinating…" no, not John! Mr Rotten travels to Louisiana in search of leaches, the worlds biggest bloodsuckers - apart from the lawyers… He improves his frog handling skills, gets a war wound and watches as a hospital patient gets his nose sucked. 300 hundred teeth, 3 jaws, but perfectly harmless.



We've just added some new desktop pattern's to the Multi-Media pages, there are 3 to choose from, Megabugs, Shark Attack & Goes Ape

The more sharp eyed amongst you will also have noticed we recently added the promo videos of 'Sun', 'World Destruction' & 'Open Up' to the Multi-Media Video Clips page.

All files are Real Player files which are streamed live and can be viewed through the FREE Real One Player, available for download from the Real Player site. More video clips will follow soon…
