If you like the sixties, as I do, you should love the stinging wit of this documentary. It is a no-holds-barred assault on the myth surrounding the decade in Britain. With a brilliant commentary by the satirist Chris Langham the programme makes a superb prosecuting counsel: the racism, the appalling architecture, the tyranny of the car, the consumerism, the unquestioning abandoning of the old are all charges that those of us who love the decade should be able to deal with without desperately labelling it 'right-wing drivel'.
There's great fun in the commentary, and I think the send up of Warhol, the British obsession with the '66 world cup and a reminder of some of the appalling pop music of the period should win this programme an award.
