Watching My Name Go By, a 1976 Documentary on the Rise of Graffiti in the City

Watching My Name Go By is a 1976 BBC documentary on the birth of graffiti in the City, and the fight to both prevent it, and expand it’s artistic value.

In this version edited slightly by YouTuber Jadell, the original cheesy music was replaced by a more fitting selection.

This documentary was made in 1976 for British Television. The music in it was terrible, apart from 2 disco tunes at the end….the latter of which I left in. I replaced the others with tunes that felt befitting for the times and subject matter. Hope you enjoy!
