British Pathé – A Year To Remember – 1969
Everyone has a special year in their lives. It might be the year you were born, the year you got engaged or married or the year when your first child was born. Perhaps you first went to school or college that year, or embarked on your career. It could even be the year you retired.
Whatever the occasion, a volume of A Year To Remember is the perfect gift (for others or yourself ). Produced entirely using approximately an hour of historic footage filmed by British Pathé News, each volume provides a detailed history of the year and will bring the memories flooding back!
Text from Producer:
A Year to Remember, the classic series that recalls the definitive events of the twentieth century, compiles contemporary news coverage drawn from the world-famous BBC and British Pathé archives.
This programme details not only the major political issues that dominated the day, but also key social changes and cultural trends. This hour-long episode chronicles that remarkable year, 1969.
This was the year that will forever be linked with the triumph of human determination and ingenuity. In July, Neil Armstrong became the first man to explore the surface of the moon in a giant leap for mankind .
Back on planet Earth, it was also the year in which Richard Nixon finally accomplished his goal of reaching the White House. Elsewhere, in Rhodesia, Prime Minister Ian Smith introduced a new constitution which rejected majority rule. And back home, Prince Charles was installed as Prince of Wales, while trouble was brewing in Northern Ireland.
1969 was certainly a year to remember.
