Description
The collection was set up as a specialist music film library and concentrates on the 1960s extending to the late 1970s, with live concert and promo material on numerous British and American rock/pop/soul/punk acts. The 1960s’ footage also covers a wide range of personalities of the era in interviews and at work, with many visual profiles on the leading pop artists such as Hockney, etc. Films on the Columbia state riots, and surfing and the Indyatlantic motor races, etc. all from the same area are also held. The collection includes all the material of the 1960s’ filmmaker, Peter Whitehead, and Peter Clifton’s pre-1978 material, before the demise of Notting Hill Studios, an active London-based production company.
