            There were a lot of history-making events happening in the 1960s - Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon in 1969; Yuri Gagarin setting foot in space in 1961 (and sadly killed in a plane crash in 1968); as well as Telstar in 1962.

            No coincidence that Tomorrow's World started in that decade as well.
            Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

                Ironic when one thinks that Brighton is associated with being a gay-friendly place.

                      I don't know - it was before I was born.

                        I thought that was in 1970 hence the Matthews Southern Comfort song of the same name.
