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. The year had barely begun when Winston Churchill departed his tremendous life. The whole nation indeed, the whole world mourned the loss of this man who had so shaped the course of the Twentieth Century. There wasn't only bad news this year, though. The Queen had a successful visit to Africa, Gambia gained its independence, the great Martin Luther King marched for civil rights, and the ever-popular Beatles were showered with honours. 1965 was certainly a year to remember.
