This was on PBS last night. It's online now for those that missed it.

They showed quite a bit on the Diggers, not so much on the music (1 Garcia clip). Did anyone out there ever take one of those bus rides in the 60s through the Haight?

Is that the one that showed the dark side which brought a close to the summer of love - increase in rape and violent crimes?

Don't they all end like that? :)

This was a new one, first broadcast last night.

It was a decent program. Really hit hard on the posers and wannabes... paralleled our thread on posers very nearly. Drugs are a means to an end, not the end...

It's interesting that the last words of the documentary are:

"Lick the stamp! Turn on!"

Might be just what the world needs. Try out "Recycled Dream" on Babbs' site. It's the right time.

I watched it too, i liked it. It was a lot better then all the other ones that are corny and very general. I liked that they showed how short it actully was and what happened because of the posers etc.
Simple enough
