The London Weekend Show, in  February 79, definitely Janet Street Porter, cant recall Elms to be honest. It covered quite a few cults in its time. That episode looked at Sham and the return of skinheads, a focus on the band.  By then most the 77/78 lot  that I knew had moved on to mod and proto casual...or retained the look but didnt associate themselves with the changing look of skinhead. Look at the video at 9.24, in the background are the roadies including Vince Riordan...

Seemed to be very much a local thing with a long running row - over  a number of years - between 2 groups, the Becontree - who dressed and considered themselves...
As I said, I lived in central London and knew a few, mainly from Camden Town/Swiss Cottage way, none around my way. Yes, the fashion had died out but for whatever reason these kept the style and considered themselves as skinheads. Both Terry and Binnsy, a few years older than me, continued on into the first skinhead revival of 77. Still see Binnsy despite him being in a gooner band, Riders of the Night.  The band your mentioning are probably Cocksparrer, Colin dressed that...
