Anyone else getting a bit tired by the BBC's bleating that 1968 was a momentous, epoch-changing year? You should have been there - 1968. After all, if it was so good, wouldn't they have set Life on Mars five years earlier? As an erstwhile student of history I'm wondering if 1968 only gets prominence because commissioning editors are, on average 40 or so years old? Or perhaps because the sort of people making potato prints in the back of camper vans in between riots in 1968 are now about 60 or so years old and run the BBC? The trouble is I also get it from my parents; 'momentous year, marched against this, against that, met one of the Dimblebys,' yadda yadda yadda. 1968: Bad clothes. Bad music. Corrupt politicians. Misguided wars. Nothing remarkable about that for us, is there? Or am I really missing something?
