Can think of quite a few but the one that sticks out for me, although only 12 at the was.

The Cuban Missile Crisis.

Being kids we thought WW3 was going to break out, must admit to being frightened at the time.

A bigger shock for me was Ali knocking Foreman out in the rumble in the jungle. I never saw that one coming.

In terms of sporting events, the tragedies at Heysel, Bradford and Hillsborough plus Jock Stein passing away live on TV.

The Nigel Benn v Gerald McClellan war, Eubank v Watson, Lupe Pintor v Johny Owen which all ended in tragedy.

Ayrton Senna and the fatal Formula 1 car crash.

Great sporting moments tinged with terrible tragedy.

I remember where I was when I heard JFK had been shot and that Jimi Hendrix had died but can't remember the dates.

Princess Di I mainly remember for a televised Bolton game being postponed and the pathetic hysteria and conspiracy theories it generated.
