NBC Bay Area Revelations
Video clip from Tribute to the Summer of Love (2017)
NBC Bay Area produced an hour-long documentary about the Summer of
Love as part of the Revelations series. It aired twice in June, 2017.
One of the segments of the film highlighted the Diggers and featured an
interview with Vicki Pollack who had joined the Diggers in early 1967
after arriving from New York. In this interview, Vicki presents an
articulate description of the attraction that the Digger vision offered
to young people who had been drawn to the Haight-Ashbury. Peter Coyote
narrates the film and this segment.
Many thanks to NBC Bay Area who gave the Digger Archives permission
to post this video clip here.
The film producers used photos from Chuck Gould's
Digger Family photo
galleries, a clip of
Nowsreal that showed a free food delivery to the Willard Street
Commune, an image from the
Free City News, and
some rare footage of the
Digger Free Store.
