British Pathe News - A Year To Remember 1957 [DVD]
In politics, the year began with Harold Macmillan becoming prime minister, taking the reins from Anthony Eden, who was humiliated and exhausted by the Suez Crisis. In the United States, there was no such transition of power, with President Eisenhower beginning a second term. For celebrity-watchers, there was Princess Grace of Monaco's new baby to gossip about. There were some technological developments too, with Britain testing its first H-Bomb and the Russians launching the world's first man-made satellite,Sputnik. The race into space had begun.
