40 Years Ago

Forty years ago my Brother was having a birthday party, I was aged 3 and a half and I was placed in front of the old 1952 405 line Bush Television for the day. This never happened - Television was for half an hour Watch with Mother and then the Six o'clock news. I can remember my confusion and also I couldn't work out why my Mum and Dad were upset when it didn't seem to be anyone of our family that they were talking about on the Television. So this is my earliest dateable memory - I'm pleased to be able to see the video clips:
BBC ON THIS DAY | 30 | 1965: Last farewell to Churchill


I know we give the Beeb much grief but I have to say that their "on this day" section is fantastic and the archive clips are tremendous.
