The Swinging 60s were a time of counterculture and social revolution, most obviously characterised by hippies, with their psychedelic clothes, music and artwork. The music scene was dominated by The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones, while Doctor Who appeared on our screens for the first time in 1963. Think mop top-hair, bell-bottom jeans, tie die and mini skirts.
Things didn't change much in the 70s, with Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and The Jackson Five among the most memorable soft rock musical acts, and the 1970 Isle of Wight festival trumping Woodstock in terms of attendance. Prog rock also came about in the form of Pink Floyd, T. Rex and Genesis, while heavier sounds like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath were also popular.
