Description

This programme details not only the major political issues that dominated the day, but also key social changes and cultural trends. This hour-long episode chronicles that remarkable year, 1958.

The world goes on show during Expo 58, also known as the Brussels World Fair, the first Fair since World War Two. The age of the teenager dawns as post-war energy and freedom fuel music and fashion. In Rome crowds amass in St Peters Square to see the newly crowned Pope Giovanni XXIII. Across the Atlantic, President Eisenhower outlines his peace plan at the United Nations. In Britain the Queen opens Gatwick Airport. But tragedy also strikes. The Munich air disaster leaves the sporting world stunned when the plane carrying the Manchester United team crashes with 28 fatalities.
