1970: We’ve Only Just Begun

November 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


We kissed goodbye to the swinging sixties and entered a new era. The reported breakup of The Beatles in April 1970 arguably put a seal on this, though pop culture remained vibrant.

In this illustrated talk, Mark Dunton, Principal Records Specialist, takes you through the year 1970, fifty years on, a year which saw the election of Edward Heath’s Conservative Government, a bizarre episode involving Bobby Moore, and a dramatic aircraft hijacking. Online event hosted by The National Archives.

This online talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams. You will be emailed an access link shortly before the event is due to start. For more information on attending a Teams event, please visit: https://bit.ly/3hWNWwn
