British Pathe News - A Year To Remember 1968 [DVD]
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 nearly six decades. 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 was the year in which rebellion was on the rise in the streets of London, barricades burned in the boulevards of Paris, reform blossomed all too briefl y in the Prague Spring, and the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King shattered the dreams of liberal America. In other news, a cross-Channel hovercraft service made its inaugural run, Mexico hosted the Olympic Games, and the Beatles took a magical mystery tour to a meditation camp in Northern India. 1968 was certainly a year to remember.
