    This is the first free concert in Hyde Park, 29th June 1968. Appearing were Jethro Tull, who are shown in the film with lead singer/flautist giving it some welly, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pink Floyd and Roy Harper, who\'s also shown playing. Briefly spotted is DJ John Peel, who has been quoted as saying that this was his favourite ever outdoor event. From Pink Floyd, we see drummer Nick Mason and new recruit Dave Gilmour.
    Giving the lie to the claim that everything was better in the 60s, much of the crowd appear bemused, bewildered and barely awake. At one point your grandma stands up and tries to sell some naughty sweets but is met with hippy indifference.
