London, July 28 (ANI): Rock band Sex Pistols swearing on live TV has topped the Most Requested TV Clips poll.

The punk rock band created a stir when they used the F word in a 1976 interview with Bill Grundy on Thames TVs Today programme.

In the poll conducted by FremantleMedia Archives on its 40th birthday, Pamela Anderson running on the beach in Baywatch was the second most requested TV clip.

Britains Got Talent winner Paul Potts, X Factors Leona Lewis, and Pop Idols Will Young are also in the top ten list.

Other most requested clips include Scott and Charlenes wedding in Neighbours and Jack Regan of The Sweeney, played by John Thaw, saying Shut it or Youre nicked.

While talent show winners dominate the requests we receive for TV clips, classics from the 70s and 80s have enduring appeal, The Sun quoted Gordon Craig, of Fremantle, as saying.

The ten most requested TV clips are:

1 Sex Pistols.

2 Pamela Anderson.

3 Paul Potts.

4 The Sweeney cop Jack Regans catchphrases.

5 Leona Lewis.

6 Will Young winning Pop Idol.

7 Scott and Charlenes wedding in Neighbours.
