Youth Subcultures | An Alternative History

History very much used to be a history from above, focusing on the landed classes, the ruling elites, the organisation and the hierarchies of society.

Professor Matthew Worley follows a parallel history of Punk, turning his eye to a hidden underbelly often overlooked by traditional historical accounts. Featuring Steve Ignorant and the music of Crass, the film unpicks the traditional stereotypes of the Punk subculture, and shows how it has prefigured much of what makes up our culture today.

Produced for the Department of History at the University of Reading
