Watch Boy George's 1970s: Save Me from Suburbia live on the web

The BBC's My Generation season continues as Boy George revisits his teenage years. While history may remember the 1970s as being marked by strikes, poverty and civil dischord, the singer reveals that - for the young George O'Dowd - the decade was the beginning of his musical, social and sexual coming-of-age.

He discusses how sexual repression and disenfranchisement, along with the advent of glam rock, disco and punk, gave rise to the flamboyant persona he would later unleash on the world, via Culture Club's memorable first appearance on Top of the Pops in 1982.
