BBC Half Hour Documentary celebrating 50 Years since the first Isle of Wight Festival.
1968, 1969 and 1970 festivals go-ers dig out their tickets and share their memories. Organiser Ray Foulk reveals how he persuaded Bob Dylan to play the Isle of Wight instead of Woodstock. Nick Turner from Hawkwind steps out of a silver (and blue) machine to jam in the same field where he played in 1970 alongside Jimi Hendrix. WEM sound system comes back to Afton Down courtesy of self proclaimed Sound Archaeologist, Chris Hewitt. While in Newport 2018 performances from James Bay, Sheryl Crow and Disco legend Nile Rogers who also sing the praises of the festival that thanks to John Giddings' lack of interest in gardening, is still part of our social history.
