A burnt-in timecode (BITC) version of Derek’s Nice’s promotional film of the band on East Wittering Beach in Sussex in late February or early March 1967.

The film premiered at the UFO club on 10 March, 1967. It is generally said to have been made in late February but Worthing is about 45 minutes’ drive from East Wittering so I think it is possible that it was made on 2 March 1967.

I was tempted to desaturate the film in FCP so it is true black and white but no other versions I have seen have had this treatment. The soundtrack is not very good, unfortunately.
