Harold Creme , Market Trader
Harold Creme launched himself on the public with a flood of words he never believed himself capable of. His father decided to give up his stall and Harold, a diffident youth with a stammer, had either to talk or quit. He talked, and he has pattered on for 30 years, drawing crowds who come to laugh and sometimes stay to buy. He is a gambler who plays for small stakes in a casino and for large ones, by its very nature, in his daily work. Narrator DERYCK GUYLER

A report by Laurie Taylor
Black Panthers , Hippies, Yippies, Anti-Vietnam War resisters, Women's Liberationists, even the Grateful Dead and Dylan. The groups who came together in search of a second American revolution in the 1960s hardly sound like orthodox revolutionaries. And neither was there anything conventional about their tactics of sit-ins, mass marches,
' trashing ', acid freak-outs ' and ' be-ins '.
Ten years later, it's fashionable to regard much of this movement as having been ineffective and self-indulgent - it was a revolution that never happened. But LAURIE TAYLOR argues that this unlikely combination of people and events helped to change the face of America. It finally ended the Mc-Carthyite cold war era, helped to undermine the American war in Vietnam and fashioned a new life-style for half the Western world.
Roll Your Own Revolution is the story of how one place-the University of California at Berkeley - came to act as a forum for the whole movement.
