BBC's summer of 1967

I’m not sure if this a one-hour special or a first instalment, the press release isn’t clear, but this BBC2 documentary on swinging London and the summer of ’67, under the title Summer Of Love, cerrtainly seems to pack a lot in.

Covering the usual ground of rebellion against the establishment, sexual revolution, LSD and outrageous fashions set to a 60s soundtrack, the programme features interviews with Donovan, Bill Wyman, Micky Dolenz, Barbara "Biba" Hulanicki, Vidal Sassoon, Mary Quant and Johnnie Walker, plus politicians and media types of the day.

Certainly worth setting the video (or DVD recorder) for. It’s on Saturday 27th May at 9:10pm on BBC2.

  1. this documentary was awsome
    I’m looking for one song from it but I don’t know the title or anything – it’s playing when someone talks about shops and clothes – your grandmother went on holiday or something like that
    any help will be appreciated
