TV watch: My Generation with Michael Caine



huskyteer and I watched this film yesterday evening and enjoyed it very much. I love Michael Caine and there were good film clips plus a great soundtrack featuring a lot of Kinks’ numbers. I must have been an annoying companion, with my ‘tsks’ and ‘pah!’s because, as I wrote way back in 2006, I refuse to believe that music and fashion changed the world in any way, or that the working classes asserted themselves for the first time in the sixties. Well worth seeing, though.
