Interview clips

Palace Pier was more common - which was more fun!
There weren't really any teenage clothes until the early 60s
I went to see the Beatles at the Hippodrome
It was a den of iniquity! I wasn't allowed to go, but I did
It was a real fire trap. You couldn't get out once you'd got in
I was on Juke Box Jury, sat next to Marianne Faithful!
We used to chat the guards up to let us travel free
There were all these Swedish girls - too much competition
We probably wriggled out of trouble quite quickly
We felt as if the town was ours
I hated new shoes and used to scrape them on the rocks
That part of Brighton was a demolition site
Egg and chips, steak and kidney pie, Jam Roly Poly
I was chased by girls with razor blades
They had the pill, but only for married women
My first kiss was during an ice hockey match
