We round up the best times in our lives – the 60s and 70s. We wore some pretty scandalous outfits, listened to the best music ever and watched some fantastic shows on television. What more could we have asked for?!
Do you remember these trends? What do you miss most?
The youthful style that emerged in London was slim fitting and featured bold geometric shapes.
Rising hemlines and mini skirts
We exposed centimetres of our thighs that had never been seen by the public before.
Charts were dominated by Beatle-mania. Do you remember the Beatles tour down under in 1964?

We danced, danced and danced some more!
The disco was born – flashing strobe lights, swirling sweaty bodies and high-energy rhythm. How many times have you listened and danced to the Saturday night fever soundtrack?

Eating … oh how times have changed!

If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than petrol for it, they would have been considered insane. And we never had our elbows or phones on the table! Take a look at more changes from our article, Eating in the 50s and 60s.
Television dominated our lives
We still listened to radio for all of our favourite tunes but the television climbed in popularity. Do you remember watching Hey Hey It’s Saturday, or Countdown?
Tells, what is your favourite memory from the 60s and 70s? If you could go back, would you want to change anything?
