Gyles Brandreth continues his Five Ages series with a look at the early 1970s. He's asked, with Cliff Richard, to bring a youthful voice to Lord Longford's anti-porn inquiry. He goes to see "blue" films in London and accompanies Longford on his infamous trip to "sin-city" -- Copenhagen, sex clubs and all. But in the end, he's sacked from the inquiry because he can't take it seriously enough.
