This is part 38/52 in our 'Fifty-Fifties' project.

This project just grew and grew. It was originally a list that became ten lists, that became twenty lists, that became forty lists, before finally becoming fifty lists... and a bit.

Here we look at some of the entertainment stuff that happened through the years, one list at a time.

Please note that we have not always looked for the biggest events in each category. This is particularly true for births and deaths. It was decided early on that we would use a system for these categories that would force us out of the box, and so it was.

If you feel that we have committed some terrible sin by excluding something that you consider to be of absolute importance, feel free to click here.

What a wonderful list. It is nice to see what was going on in the year I was born. Some stuff I knew already but some things were new to me. Must have been quite a challenge to create all those lists. You did a great job with your husband. :)
