Woburn Park, Bedfordshire.
Various shots shows hippies emerging from a psychedelic van, tents and a double-decker bus in the grounds of Woburn Park. Hippies in colourful flower-power clothes with flowers in their hair walk past the stately home at Woburn; one man wears a Union Jack Flag as a cloak over his shoulders. Several shots show people buying beads and paper flowers from sellers at this 'Love-in'.
Painted signs, some on the sides of cars, read 'Psychedelic Happening', 'Flower Power' and 'Free Love'. Scenes of hippy couples; tracking shot past numerous people lying on the grass, tapping their feet to music and smoking. People crowd around the back of a van, where real flowers (man!) are being handed out; a woman attaches carnations to Don Piccard's crash helmet; we then then see Don, preparing to take off in a hot air balloon. Commentator says he is the son of the great balloonist pioneer.
Various shots of the hot air balloon flying over the Love-in and dropping hundreds of flowers on the crowds of beautiful people below - far out! The hippies eagerly attach their flowers to their clothes and hats. M/S of a crazy, high hippy clapping in a frenetic manner; pan right to show the rest of the crowd sitting and/or dancing before a band on a small outdoor stage. Other hippies enjoy themselves on a vintage car fairground ride; several shots of hippies dancing; brief shot of the guitar players (one looks like Donovan, but I don't think it is); hippy chicks and boys ride on a merry-go-round.
Great film! The music on the soundtrack is pretty groovy too; 'It Must Be Love' - P Wood, D Perry and 'We Are On Top of the World' - Phil Coulter / B Martin.
Note: for search purposes, Swinging Sixties. Cuts exist - see separate record.
