The world’s media descended on Delhi for the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and quite a few journalists extended their stay by travelling on to Goa. One such was the BBC’s Howard Johnson.

His visit coincided with the recent death in Goa of ‘Eight Finger Eddie’ – one of the best known of the original hippies who had just not gone ‘home’. Howard contrasted the lives and myths of the original hippies with modern tourism in Goa. And who else to choose to interview but Casa Susegad’s Carole and Norman (who had himself once travelled overland through Afghanistan to India!)?

The programme is still available on YouTube if you want to check it out.
