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.
A touch of celebrity magic was also provided by a Royal Wedding when Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark married the King of Greece in a touching ceremony. Meanwhile, our Queen was greeting her Canadian subjects on a Royal Tour. But there was sad news from overseas too, with the death of Indian Prime Minister Nehru.
In Britain, it was a year when Number 10 Downing Street came under new management. Conservative Prime Minister Alec Douglas-Home was out after a brief stint in power and Labour s Harold Wilson was in.
1964 was certainly a year to remember.
