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 that will forever be linked with the triumph of human determination and ingenuity. In July, Neil Armstrong became the first man to explore the surface of the moon in a giant leap for mankind. Back on planet Earth, it was also the year in which Richard Nixon finally accomplished his goal of reaching the White House. Elsewhere, in Rhodesia, Prime Minister Ian Smith introduced a new constitution which rejected majority rule. And back home, Prince Charles was installed as Prince of Wales, while trouble was brewing in Northern Ireland. 1969 was certainly a year to remember.
