Stunning documentary footage from a key point in history from the world-famous British Pathe film archive

This hour-long documentary looks at events in the extraordinary year of 1988.

A Year to Remember draws together contemporary news footage compiled from the British Pathe archive to chronicle the definitive events that occurred during the 20th century.

Pathe News set the industry standard for cinematic journalism, keeping audiences informed and entertained for the better part of a century with their newsreels. Their  film reels not only documented the major political issues of the day, but social changes and cultural trends showing the way ordinary people lived their lives at the time.

In this  important  year,  Australia celebrates the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the country's first immigrants, whilst Aborigines campaign for land rights.

The Soviet Union celebrates as they recognise 1000 years of Christianity in their country. The Gold Rush hits the Amazon, as  everyone  traverses deep into the jungle in search of riches. Hurricane Gilbert hits the Caribbean, leaving death and destruction in its wake.

In a more positive side of the year, the British  public  shows compassion and generosity, as people come together  to celebrate Comic Relief's first Red Nose Day, which raises £15 million for  charity.
