Whicker's World - The Love Generation

San Francisco has become the capital of the world for a rapidly growing tribal community of self-styled beautiful people. Alan Whicker drops in on the Summer of Love. (1967)

San Francisco has become the capital of the world for a rapidly growing tribal community of self-styled beautiful people. They are staging a peaceful revolution against the pressures and greed of the western way of life.

But the 'straight world' outside shows little enthusiasm for these Flower Children, with their long hair, far-out clothes, and dropped-out ideals. They're often viewed as parasitic and drug-addled.

Alan Whicker finds himself surrounded by love, peace and harmony in 1960s San Francisco. (1967)
