I'm sure all but the terminally nostalgic have had more than their fill of 1968 anniversary blather by now, but Newsnight's Paul Mason has got hold of secret police files and uncovered some interesting detail on the sheer level of panic and disinformation surrounding the anti-war demos in London - not the famous March 1968 one that led to clashes in Grovesnor Square, but the much larger one that took place in October.
