What was the 3 Day War?  Where was I when Kennedy was shot?  Was Bray the only foreign holiday destination ion the 1960s?

The History Channel will explore these and many more events, with both explanations and historical reporting from events in our childhood that we may recall but still have no clue as to what they were about.

It will also share childhood experiences from local events that form part of our historic fabric – whether what it was like to buy a pint for under a shilling, how every night club provided free chicken and chips, or what your school did when the children of Aberfan were buried under a collapsing slag heap.

Between us we have a rich, if not lurid, tapestry of knowledge that paints the picture of our time, which we aim to share and fill in the blanks that you may have of those times past.
