The Lost World of the Seventies
Michael Cockerell sheds new light on the tragi-comedy of the 1970s by focusing on some of its most controversial characters. With fresh filming and new interviews, along with a treasure trove of rare archive, the film presents the inside story of giant personalities who make today's public figures look sadly dull in comparison.
It's starting with Retired General Sir Walter Walker http://en.wikipedia....sh_Army_officer), a very pukka, and very senior ex-soldier who was one of many people who believed that a Communist revolution could emerge at any time. Well, any time back then.
Walker went so far as to organize volunteers to step into the breach if the red tide ever washed over the country.
