The year Rumbelows disappeared, Today (the newspaper) folded, Barings collapsed. The year the MGF was launched and Bridget Jones first appeared in The Independent. When the Conservatives controlled just 8 councils (compared to 155 for Labour and 45 (count 'em!) for the Lib Dems) and John Major resigned in his famous "Back Me or Sack Me" move. The year Frank Bruno won the WBC World Heavy Championship and Stephen Hendry won his 5th World Snooker Championship. It was the year the Bosnian War came to an end and the year the Queen Mum had a hip-replacement whilst the Queen urged The Prince and Princess of Wales to divorce. Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, Philip Pullman's The Northern Lights and Iain Banks' Whit were published and Fred Perry, Kenny Everitt and Alec Douglas-Home died.
And it was the year of Edwin Collins' A Girl Like You. Enjoy!
