The 'Swinging Sixties' are commonly depicted as hedonistic days. A point in history remembered for the generation of young
people who shed the trappings of their parents and grandparents and, fuelled by sex, drugs, rock 'n roll, set out to put the
world to rights. A time when individuality was heralded and convention widely challenged. A time without precedent. But what
was it really like and what is this generation up to now? What did they expect from their lives, and were they so different
from those of their parents and grandparents and, indeed, even their children? Had their youthful ideals and expectations
been matched by reality? 'Sixty Somethings' looks back over the lives of 67 women in their sixties who lived through the Sixties
to explore these questions.
