J.R.R Tolkien at Oxford

I love ‘Lord of the rings’ and everything Tolkien, so when I came across this very rare clip of him at Oxford I nearly jumped out of my seat!
I even visited Oxford recently and stood in the same place as he did in the clip.. sigh.. 🙂

ITN Source have recently been adding clips to Youtube and upgrading their channel.
This clip has been very popular as it shows very rare footage of a New York ghetto during the 1970’s and has sparked lots of debate.

Hippies in San Francisco

This is an interesting, informative and amusing special report from ITN’s ‘Reporting ’67’.

It features the hippies of Haight Ashbury, a street-wide spontaneous happening, the diggers (including Ron Thelin, digger and co-owner of The Psychedelic Shop) a bus tour, and various other hippiesque lifestyle features including hospitalisation due to bad LSD trips..

1970s punks in the Kings Road – London

Interesting news report from ITN on the Kings Road punks during the 1970s, their clashes with teddy boys, a look inside Vivienne Westwood’s shop and an interview with a punk on the use of amphetamines. The guy at the end of the clip certainly looks like he’s on something .. 😛
