was a BBC documentary series that ran from 1959 to 1988, presented by Alan Whicker. In 1967, Whicker traveled to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco to examine the phenomenon of hippies. Part One
introduces us to The Love Generation. Part Two
reveals that The Grateful Dead smoked marijuana. Part Three
features freak-out dance performances and a hippy not on LSD. In Part Four
, a woman in a hammock leads to teeny boppers violating the fuzz and the natural antagonism between the hippies and police. Part Five
is on LSD. Part Six
has many self-indulgent hippies.
