Rare film of 1960s Portsmouth, the archives of The News, photos, newsreel footage, and the music of the sixties will take you on a roller-coaster ride through this amazing decade.
Whether you recall buying your first car or your first house; nights out at the Birdcage or the Parlour; dodging the traffic in Commerical Road; a round of drinks and change for ten bob; Kay Stanhope’s tips for the busy housewife or your first trip to a supermarket; playing marbles or hopscotch in the street; milk deliveries by horse and cart; ice on the inside of the windows in the winter; petrol at 2s 6d a gallon with Green Shield stamps thrown in; your first trip on a hovercraft or your last journey on a trolleybus; ‘Watch with Mother’ or ‘Ready Steady, Go’ on TV; the Beatles at the Guildhall. Whatever your recollections, this DVD brings Sixties Portsmouth brilliantly to life and should get your feet tapping in the process.
