1962 - Pathe News - A Year to Remember
This was the year in which the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the world to
the brink of nuclear war. But as much as this affair dominated the news,
there were other important international events too, with both Uganda and
Algeria winning their independence.
In Britain, the Conservatives seemed to run out of steam. Macmillan’s health
started to fail, the Cabinet seemed ineffectual, and internal wranglings
plagued the day-to-day running of the government. The Party’s popularity
in the country declined steadily and a sluggish economy helped to make
the situation worse. But there was cause for celebration on the technological
front, with Pathé News reporting on a new project to build an airliner that
could reach America in three hours – a project that would eventually give
birth to Concorde.
1962 was certainly a year to remember.
