Once there, frolic organizers placed the young women in an “Inter-City Beauty” contest in which the judging was largely based on their general appeal in appearance, personality, conversations with the judges, and interactions with the crowds.

Decisions were made to increase the number of scheduled public attractions and make it a two-day event the following year.The findings were more stark when the results were broken down with age.Two-thirds (66 per cent) of over-65s felt racial prejudice was worse in 1968, but young minority Britons are less confident with around half believing things were worse 50 years ago and 24 per cent claiming it was about the same today.
