The Hair-raising '60s

The musical Hair is celebrating its opening night in the West End this evening.

The musical which deals with pacifism, sexuality, nudity, race and class was seen as very controversial when first released in the 1960s.

Sir Cameron Mackintosh, co-producer of the current production, and Dame Ann Leslie, veteran foreign correspondent at the Mail, discuss the show's cultural significance.
