Days in the Life

on BBC Two England

The first of a new three-part series which focuses on three key days that reveal how the significance of the sixties extends far beyond sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.
Sink the Island. In August 1970 the Isle of Wight hosted the biggest rock concert ever, with Jimi Hendrix , the Doors, the Who, Free, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez on the bill. But what should have been a celebration of peace and the music of an era ended in bitter conflict between organisers, locals, stars, police and Hell's Angels. See Choice.
