Anniversary for Woodstock town

A dairy farm in upstate New York is the centre of celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of Woodstock.

In 1969, more than 300,000 people came to the farm to take part in one of the biggest music festivals.

On the 40th anniversary, people who were there - both performing and watching - are still assessing its impact on the world.

Anna Holligan reports.
