"We Destroy the Family: Punks vs Parents" (doc, KABC TV, USA, 23 min, 1982)

I found this wee telly documentary about teenage punks and their loving (!) parents. You should watch it – even if you're not a punk ... or a teen. Or a parent.

Lee Ving of FEAR is in the doc briefly. 

Original YouTube info:
"I think LA's KABC won some award with this short documentary on how punk rock is destroying families -- somehow missing the point that family dysfunction is the culprit, not Lee Ving. Nice shots of a Fear concert. This ran as a week-long 5-part special report on the KABC-TV news, and then ran alone late one night as an expanded special."

NB: The original uploader divided the film into three parts. I put them back together!
