We kissed goodbye to the swinging sixties and entered a new era. The reported breakup of The Beatles in April 1970 arguably put a seal on this, though pop culture remained vibrant. 

In this illustrated talk, Mark Dunton takes you through the year 1970, fifty years on, a year which saw the election of Edward Heath’s Conservative Government, a bizarre episode involving Bobby Moore, and an upsurge in terrorism. 

Mark Dunton is a Principle Records Specialist at The National Archives.

Timings are indicative. Talk expected to last one hour, including 15 mins for audience Q&A.

Cost: £10
