Special - LSD
"The World Tomorrow" was a Granada Television documentary series produced for the ITV network. In 1967 it was broadcast in a late slot on Friday night's, but in early February a special edition was produced on the subject of LSD and screened in an earlier peak-time slot in midweek. The special included interviews with the American psychologist and advocator of LSD Dr Timothy Leary and Beat poet Allen Ginsberg.
Introduction voice over: "'Turn on, Tune in, Drop Out' For this crowd of hip young Americans these six words are shorthand for an electrifying experience most of them know well, an experience called 'The Trip', 'The Trip' is a drug induced mental explosion that has changed their whole way of looking at the world. But for many other Americans the six words stand for something else - controversy, crime and terror. Turning on, tuning in and dropping out is what happens to you when you take a dose of the strange new drug called LSD..... LSD stands for Dextro lysergic acid diethylamide, a chemical derived from a fungus that grows on rye, it is not addictive like Heroin or Cocaine but it's far more powerful in its' effects. Taken in a pill or sugar cube, it acts in an hour and lasts up to 24 - During this time the user soars into another world where the consciousness is vastly expanded, or seems to be. This is the famous psychedelic experience."
Ginsberg: "...Are there wars on Earth? Still? Vietnam - like everybody losing control of their temper. Does anybody else want to create a hell? Perpetuate a hell? We might as well get out of our minds, which - does mean some LSD as a useful personal catalyst as something that does approximate a natural religious experience."
Leary: "The experience that you have when you take LSD is similar to the experience that has been described by the great mystics and philosophers of the past. There's a sense of being in communion with powers greater than yourself - Intelligence that far outstrips the human mind and energies which are very ancient. You have a sense of being brought into God's workshop, where the veil is pulled away and for the first time and you see how things really are."

- It's So Far Out It's Straight Down
A Granada Television documentary on the London counter-culture scene in 1967, includes early live footage of Pink Floyd playing "Interstellar Overdrive" at the UFO club on 27th January 1967, "Percy the Ratcatcher" can also be heard.
Paul McCartney: "They've got all these rules - Rules of how to live, how to paint, how to make music - and it's just not true anymore, they don't work, all those rules, you can't apply them because it means then that you're assuming that you know it all, you know.... and we don't know it all yet. And so, what this gang of people from the 'International Times,' 'Indica,' and the whole scene is trying to do is try to see where we are now and see what we've got around us - see any mistakes we've made and straighten 'em out. It's just a straight forward endeavor kind of scene, just to do something other than what's been done before, because what's been done before isn't necessarily the answer. There could be another answer."

- What is a Happening?
The 14 Hour Technicolour Dream Festival at the Alexandra Palace in London on 29th April 1967 was filmed by the BBC for the documentary and current affairs series "Man Alive". About 10,00 people attended and "STP" (a longer lasting though less potent version of LSD) was handed out free of charge to all who wanted it. Among the attractions were Pink Floyd, though sadly they were not filmed, there were also various performance artists, poets, dancers and jugglers. Read more about the event here.
would you describe the purpose of this evening, The 14 Hour Technicolour
Jim Haynes: "I think that there's a new period, we're starting a new era, sweeping around as a kind of reaction to various things that have been happening in the world and it manifests itself in love and sweetness and kindness and flowers. We're not initiating anything so much as portraying what IS happening."

All Make Love in London
Peter Whitehead's feature length study of swinging London in 1966-67 included an interview with Mick Jagger, footage of the Stones at the Albert Hall on 23rd September 1966 and Eric Burdon & The Animals miming to "When I Was Young". Parts of a Pink Floyd performance of "Interstellar Overdrive" recorded at Sound Techniques Studio in Chelsea, London on 11th or 12th January 1967 were used throughout the film but only a fleeting glimpse of the band is actually seen, there was also an outtake of Floyd doing a piece called "Nick's Boogie" and this was issued along with the full length "Interstellar Overdrive" on a re-working of the original film titled "Pink Floyd: London 1966/67" released in 1994.
"When they're violent against the police, it's the only way they have of
showing it, because they're not organised."
Interviewer: "How would you organise them?"
Jagger: "I wouldn't want to organise them. I don't feel that I'm a leader of them, or whoever we're talking about..... I just feel part of the thing that started off. This isn't the first generation that's questioned the moral values of the last generation."
Film released November 1967 (72 minutes, a mixture of colour and black & white)

World - "The Love Generation"
BBC reporter Alan Whicker travelled to San Francisco early in 1967 to make this documentary film which included footage of The Grateful Dead performing "The Golden Road".
Whicker's introduction: "No one really knows what's 'happening' in San Francisco, but this is 'where it's at'. Traditional home of 'the way out', today the mecca of happy hippies who are cracking the smooth silhouette of America's materialism with that ultimate weapon - with love..... Haight Ashbury, a crumbling corner of San Francisco, is where the action is, this is where the hippies began their march towards flower power and the quiet revolution. A significant part of the American landscape today and a rallying point for the new irreverent way of life for those who preach the 'drop out' gospel, a community of beautiful people or perhaps a dark carnival. In hippie colonies around the world, thousands of people are joining this 'far out' pursuit of happiness. So as the 'square world' begins to adopt hippie fashions, let's take a thoughtful look at the love generation in full flower, walking off the joy and pain of being young and poor in the richest place in the world amid a conforming society that distrusts the different. Where the living is easy and the job's are waiting, hippies 'turn on, tune in and drop out' to show distaste for a bland culture which seems to offer no ideal beyond that of acquisition. Everyone's competing they say, nobody's living.... Hippie philosophy is hostile to hard drugs like Heroin, but based on psychedelic drugs - which provide instant mysticism - like LSD, Peyote and Marijuana. They swallow these mind expanding drugs illegally while the coach fulls of tourists who daily come to stare at them stay legally hooked on booze, cigarettes and tranquillizers."

Top of the
Pops (1967 editions)
By 1967 'Top of the Pops' was having to contend with a miming ban, a curious state of affairs which forced artists who could only (or would only) appear on film to be a little more inventive in order to avoid the wrath of the musicians union. Acts that did agree to appear in person would now have to sing live over backing tracks stripped of any obvious instrumentation not played by those actually appearing on the screen - either that or put their trust in Johnny Pearson's Top of the Pops Orchestra to come up with something resembling what had been achieved on disc (An ever more challenging task in an age of rapidly expanding production values).
Simon Dee's relatively brief stint as one of the regular presenters came to an end in March 1967 and following the launch of Radio 1 on 30th September 1967 (transmitting the first legal UK signals dedicated to pop full-time) the brand new station's DJ's each had a turn at being paired up with one the old guard, Stuart Henry ultimately being chosen to fill the gap left by Dee.

Film of the June 1967 Pop festival featuring performances by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Country Joe and the Fish, Eric Burdon, Hugh Masekela, Ravi Shankar, Janis Joplin and many others. The footage was originally shot for an ABC TV special but when the newly appointed president of the station saw it he declared "This film does not meet industry standards" and 'Monterey Pop' wasn't seen in America until it reached the cinema at end of 1968. British cinemas probably didn't show it until the early 1970's. The full Hendrix set (or most of it) eventually saw the light of day as a home video release in 1987.

The Beatles self directed and unscripted attempt at a psychedelic movie (based on a mystery bus trip) largely failed to appeal to a straight or 'turned on' audience, the newspaper critics were certainly not impressed and Paul McCartney hastily arranged an appearance on David Frost's TV chat show the very next day to defend it. The film does have its' moments, a performance by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and a fabulous sequence to accompany "I Am the Walrus" made the project worthwhile. Ivor Cutler was among the passengers, playing an oddball who thinks he is the Tour Courier, though unfortunately the film didn't include one of his idiosyncratic comedy numbers that had made him an underground cult favourite - something that would have been so much more preferable than the painfully over-long romantic beach scene involving Cutler and 'the fat lady', though mercifully this section was apparently cut by the BBC for the original broadcasts.
