Quotes

Narrator: In the two, distinct groupings within the teenage population, the Mods go for groups like "The Zephyrs" we've just heard. And the Rockers go for less sophisticated surroundings. They prefer motorcycles to motor scooters. Their chief instrument is noise - in their music and their machines. Group identity is established by bizarre motifs on machines and clothes. Admission to this group is via a "ton-up", that is, achieving 100 miles an hour on their motorcycles. Their boast about this, matches ...

Marginally more watchable than the previous years, London In The Raw

Marginally more watchable than the previous years, London In The Raw, also from Mr Miller, this does, however, seem to have less genuine documentary sequences and more reconstructions. Still, it keeps one's attention and the is far more flesh in this, even if overall the girls are older and less attractive. The makers were clearly much affected by the role that censorship was to play in the chances of this getting released so for every salacious shot there was a hectoring response from the narrator. This was much in line with other media coverage at the time. The News of the World newspaper for instance was always carrying features with proclamations such as; 'Will these vile practises ever be stopped? - See pages 2, 3,4 and 5'!! Still, if that was the only way outside of a naturist film to get flesh on screen, then in exploitation film-making, needs must. I liked the wife swapping enactment and here the disapproving narration inadvertently adds some humour. As with other, aforementioned DVD release this is much helped by excellent extras including substantial booklet and shorts.
