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 .. 😛

I love the exagerated movements of the models and choreography designed to create a real stir at this remarkable event.

I particularly like this clip as it shows Churchill dressed in an unusual style, in breeches and a type of garter. I wonder what the style was called and if it was worn for particular events etc, anyone have any answers?
