I love the B&W footage of old English TV nerds discussing Led Zeppelin and the state of the youth culture of the day. Priceless.

What a gem! I would have been old enough to have seen this, but it's hard to believe TV was so patronizing and cliche in the black and white days. And the anchorman Bob Wellings must have been all of 30 years old and acting like a grandad, let alone a dad as he is referred to. Plus ├ža change! Great to see Bonzo at his peak though...

This isn't a new discovery. It's been on bootlegs (and YouTube) for YEARS! Either way, still great to see!

Bless you, Bonzo. As articulate as he was with Australian journos when they toured here just before I was old enough to see 'em. Very English, very 'eavy. Love.
