Those Were the Days - Britain in the Sixties

Tells the story of a decade of massive change in Britain. From Beatlemania to the violent anti-war protests in Grosvenor Square, the major news stories of the period are placed in their social context by the use of rarely seen material that shows the way we lived and the way we were four decades ago. The result is a unique glimpse of the history of Britain during the 'Swinging Sixties' - when Britain was at the centre of so much that was new and exciting, from the boutiques of Carnaby Street to the launch of Concorde. The archive footage is interspersed with contemporary adverts to create a nostalgia-filled programme that will be watched over and over again.
