    Try Amazon. They should have a version on DVD which you can pick up relatively cheaply.

    Should be good. I'll set the Foxtel box to record it just in case I forget to watch it.

    Or a Rod. At least they knew what to do with a Lambretta in those days.

    Hi Guys

    I was at the fateful day in Brighton back in 64 as a spotty teenager with the Mods...the film does capture the Mod scene and the scooters plus the way of life at the time very well....but for my part I look back at the event with a mixture of one of those life's events that went bonkers on the day and shame.It was meant to be a ride down to Brighton for the day,well for me and my mates at the time anyway.The rockers were there just like us going for a ride and they were out numbered and became the target as a minority group and the mob mentality took over ...I got caught up in it with my mates just the same...therefore to my shame.

     

    but thats youth for you and running with the pack....only if we could just stick with the enjoyment of the ride and the scoots,in the end the Mods imploded but the style and the luv of the scooters remains.

     

    cheers Mike

    Ta for that, Mike - it's always interesting to hear the perspective of one who was actually there.
