We all remember those great news events that have occured throughout our lives. TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks you about the first.
Which is the first great news event that you can remember? What else was going on then?
My answer is:
It seems I was largely oblivious to many of the great headlines that appeared in the sixties. However, everybody was talking of the Apollo 11 moon landing in July 1969. I also recall not long after, the world watching as the crew of Apollo 13 struggled to get home. The papers always seemed full of people called 'hippies' as well.
Now it's over to you...
