Hippy history

It was a landmark in hippy history - pioneering but a financially disastrous experiment in "designer" retailing set up by the Beatles.

Newsnight is marking the Apple Boutique's 40th anniversary with a light projection on Baker Street.

The programme has recreated the vast and controversial artwork that dominated the four-storey building in Baker Street, London.

The light projection shows the original psychedelic mural.

Newsnight, BBC Two at 10.30pm on Thursday, 31st July 2008.
