FINE & RARE 1978


The Year that Was

The world’s first ‘test tube baby’ is safely delivered in the UK shortly before midnight on 25th July. ‘Wuthering Heights’, the debut single by Kate Bush, goes to the top of the UK charts, making her the first woman to have a self-penned No.1. The film ‘Grease’ is released, and the first radio episode of ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’ by Douglas Adams is broadcast in the UK.
