This lot certainly didn't decant 'em in 1971!
I'm currently busy 'transcribing'. I came cross a reference on this thread to this track someone found on a Japanese site (ignore the advert that comes up at the beginning). Most of the images are from the '69 era. However, it did contain an "Oh!" moment for me, and here's why: We discussed the 'skinhead' episode in Inspector George Gently, and how the 'skinheads' portrayed were just totally wrong for 1969.
