Dennis Morris snapped the Sex Pistols at their peak. He captured their innocence.

To seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go...

MONDAYS ARE different, now. Mondays will never be the same again. That is because Melvyn Bragg will never start the week again. Never again will he lead some of the world's leading lecturers, writers and geneticists through a graceful Monday morning parley. Never again will we hear him receive a science education in front of our very ears. For so long did Melvyn Bragg start the week, that it seems impossible that he is not still doing it in some alternative time/space continuum...

The top 100 - Harry Secombe is hot, the Sex Pistols are not

NO SURPRISES about the winners, then. With boring predictability, The Beatles were yesterday voted Britain's favourite music performers of all time, ahead of the equally predictable Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Queen and Elton John.

Obituary: Judge Dread

THE BRITISH love novelty records. Put saucy lyrics to a groovy beat, add a dash of seaside postcard humour and you're on to a winner. Judge Dread, the risque cod-reggae artist who died on Friday night at the end of a concert in Canterbury, had a string of Top 20 hits in the Seventies with singles like "Big Six", "Big Seven", "Big Eight" and "Big Ten" which left little to the imagination and were all banned by the BBC. Somewhere between coarse rugby songs, Benny Hill and ska, these proved firm favourites with skinheads, "rude boys" and spotty teenagers chuckling at their first taste of swearing on albums like Dreadmania, Working Class 'Ero and Bedtime Stories.

Letter: Anarchists for peaceful protest

Pop: Whatever happened to / All of The Stranglers? (Just ask the sheep...)

They certainly aren't spring chickens (not that they were in 1976 when they exploded on to the music scene). But, as James McNair discovers, it hasn't stopped the revamped Stranglers flying to the Falklands to play to 35 - yes, 35 - of the most fanatical fans south of Ascension Island.
