The Sex Pistols swearing moment created a storm of publicity
A snippet of the Sex Pistols swearing during a live broadcast in 1976 has become a television archive's most requested clip.
The incident, which happened during an interview with Bill Grundy, topped requests received by FremantleMedia, which owns the Thames TV catalogue.
Clips of former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson running along the beach came second in the list.
Talent show winners Paul Potts, Leona Lewis and Will Young also featured.
Opera singer Potts, who won TV variety show Britain's Got Talent in 2007, comes third in the top ten with requests for his first performance on the programme.
Fourth most popular are Jack Regan's catchphrases "shut it" and "you're nicked" from police drama The Sweeney.
The moments when Leona Lewis won X Factor and Will Young took the Pop Idol crown made it into fifth and sixth places respectively.
The wedding of Scott and Charlene on Australian soap Neighbours, which was watched by millions of viewers in 1988, came in at number seven.
The infamous Benny Hill chase scene was at eight, just above requests for Tommy Cooper's "just like that" magic routines.
Rounding off the top 10 was a selection of Kenny Everett's characters, including Cupid Stunt and her legs akimbo catchphrase: "It's all done in the best possible taste".
Gordon Craig, head of archive sales at Fremantle Media said: "While talent show winners like Paul Potts and Leona Lewis dominate the requests we receive for TV clips, it is classic shows from the 70s and 80s which seem to have enduring appeal."
Fremantle holds clips from companies such as Talkback Thames, American Idol producer 19 and Grundy television - which is responsible for Neighbours and Prisoner.
The top 10 was compiled over the 40-year period of the archive's existence.
