I was just starting school when Barkers began: Now they have their own magazine and I am in it.
Hawaii 5.0 had just started screening as had Benny Hill. Dirty Harry was on at the Pictures (as they were called in those days) and Abba were a pop sensation. Digital watches and calculators were released and Atari released the game PONG.
Bobby Fischer had just become world chess champion and the kid next to me in primer one pissed his pants (a lot).
Now that did Pong!
