This documentary sets out to examine the musical content and influence of Beatles' album, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," but it quickly becomes a much broader and more interesting overview of the 1960s international youth and counter-culture movements. 

Topics examined include: San Francisco psychedelic and hippie culture, pop stars arrested for marijuana in the UK, riots and mass arrests in L.A., the Diggers, the underground press in the UK and the US, the anti-war movement, the levitation of the Pentagon, pot and LSD, the influx of Eastern religions, psychedelic art and music, groovy happenings, the Monterey Pop Festival, the San Francisco Human Be-in, experiments in the Netherlands, Sgt. Pepper and more. 

There have been many documentaries about the 1960s, but none of them capture the range of ideas that were explored and the excitement and exhilaration of the 1960s as well as "It Was 20 Years Ago Today." Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Derek Taylor, George Martin, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Abbie Hoffman, Paul Kantner, Malcolm McDowell, Peter Coyote, Ron Thelin, Barry Miles, Chet Helms, Allen Cohen, and many others.
