Couch Potato Pickings | Woodstock – the 40th anniversary

Yes, it was exactly 40 years ago today when those thousands of music lovers headed out to that dairy farm in Bethel, New York for the most iconic rock festival weekend of all time.

To mark this important anniverary and offer a nostalgia trip for those who remember the age of flower power, BBC4 is showing the award-winning Director’s Cut of the Woodstock festival rock documentary.

So, if you didn’t manage to get a ticket for The Heroes of Woodstock – the US tour featuring some of those original Woodstock artists who are still with us, then you might want to relive those three days of peace and music in three hours tonight via the small screen.

But if you miss it, don’t fret, Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director’s Cut was also re-released recently on DVD and Blu-ray
Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez and Janis Joplin began the decade as swooning fans of Cliff Richard?

Summer Holiday

If that was you, then you maybe be amused, and perhaps pleased, to learn that Cliff’s Summer Holiday is also on today – on ITV1 this morning.

Woodstock is showing at 9pm tonight on BBC4

Summer Holiday shows on ITV1 this morning at 10.35am
