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!
Full description from the producer:
A Year to Remember, the classic series that recalls the definitive events of the 20th century, compiles contemporary news coverage drawn from the world famous British Pathé archive. Pathé News set the standard for cinematic journalism, keeping audiences both informed and entertained for the better part of a century. This programme does the same for a new generation and 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, 1977. This momentous year celebrates the Queen s Silver Jubilee, mourns the death of Elvis Presley, at the age of 42, and witnesses the deadliest aviation disaster in history when two 747s collide on a runway in Spain, killing 583 people. In Holland, South Maluku terrorists seeking independence seize a train. The car industry is on a high as Rolls Royce now produces 50% more cars than five years ago. On the sporting front, Geoffrey Boycott returns to Test Cricket and Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket changes the nature of the game.
