Check it Out (UK TV series)

"Check it Out" was a youth-oriented television series produced twice weekly by Tyne Tees Television for ITV in 1979-1982. It presented a mix of rock music performances and segments dealing with social issues including homelessness and homosexuality.

"Check it Out" was produced concurrently with Tyne Tees' new music series "Alright Now", from 1979 to 1980.

The show was notorious for an appearance by the band Public Image Ltd., in which John Lydon became angry at the interviewer's questions and walked out of the studio. [http://www.fodderstompf.com/ARCHIVES/ARTS/check79.html]
