A triple DVD set giving a thorough outline of important events year by year with over 9 hours of footage. Features rare archive footage from the British Pathé archive. Significant events include John F Kennedy becoming president and his assassination, the Apollo Moon landing, development of Concorde, England winning the World Cup, the Cuban missile crisis, Radio Caroline, Vietnam war, changing hairstyles, fashion and Beatlemania.

The British Motor industry was extremely high profile during this era and this DVD features footage from the world famous Earls Court Shows which enables the general public to see new designs and technology. Featured cars include the new Hillman Imp, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Daimler, Rover Gas Turbine, the Ford Zephyr, MGB, Jensen, Vauxhalls and many more.

Whether viewers are remembering their own cars, or those from their childhood, this film archive is a nostalgic look back at a sadly nearly lost industry where Britain’s design and ingenuity shone. Wonderful resource for meaningful group or 1-1 TV watching or for creating activities based around cars or this period.
