16. James Riley: The Bad Trip

The 1960s, for many, was a time of new ideas, freedom, and renewed hope – from the civil rights movement to Woodstock. But towards the end of the decade everything seemed to implode; the Manson murders, the tragic events of the Rolling Stones concert at Altamont and the appearance of the Zodiac Killer all called a halt to the progress of a glorious decade.

In The Bad Trip, James Riley descends into the underworld of the 60s to reveal the dark side of the counterculture. Moving between Britain and America, this is a magical mystery tour that shows just how different the popular concept of the 60s is from the reality of the period.
