Christmas documentary reveals Sex Pistols' cuddly side

Notorious punk rocker Sid Vicious dances to Christmas hits with a gaggle of children, while fellow Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten hands out presents. It sounds implausible, but this is how the British punk band spent Christmas Day 1977. Unseen footage of Sex Pistols in this unlikely scenario will be broadcast for the first time in a new documentary to be aired on BBC television on December 26. The band spent Christmas that year playing a charity gig for the children of striking firefighters at a nightclub in Huddersfield, a market town in northern England.
