1968 was a momentous year. It saw the Tet Offensive in Vietnam and the anti-war movement gaining strength by the day. France brought close to revolution by student protests and strikes. It saw the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, and the hopes raised by the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia were crushed by Soviet tanks.

In this illustrated talk, Mark Dunton, Principal Records Specialist for Contemporary Records at The National Archives, will take you back in time to this tumultuous year.
