British teens win the right to vote, so the two major political parties try hard to win this new voting block to their side. Meanwhile, there's a parade of pop stars including Freddy Cannon, Ketty Lester, Jeremy Lloyd, Bobby Vee, The Crickets, The Springfields, Jet Harris, Tony Meehan, Joe Brown and the Bruvvers, The Tornadoes, Brian Poole and the Tremoloes and Johnny Tillotson. Bobby sings "All You Gotta Do Is Touch Me," and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes." Too bad they didn't have priority helping them get their tickets. Nevertheless, these stars created a stir in the hearts of teenagers of their time.
