There were several televisual stand outs from my childhood. Sad to say that one of them was England winning the World Cup in shixty shix (copyright Motty).
The Ali fights against Frazier in Manilla and Foreman in Zaire were very memorable as was Scotland’s qualification for and participation in the 1974 World Cup.
However, the most memorable piece of telly wasn’t anything to do with sport. It was the landing on the moon by Apollo 11 on July 20th 1969. I wasn’t yet ten years old but can clearly remember watching as Neil Armstrong took the final step on to the moon.
An old posting here perhaps gives an indication of what a world event it was.
Tomorrow, Monday 20th July is the fortieth anniversary of the first moon landings. Here is how Helensburgh celebrated.
You’ll have to take my word for this one as the road signs is missing.
