In 1956, the first big issue was the Suez crisis, which put our own Bob Menzies on the world stage, but he got no applause.  TV was turned on in time for the Melbourne Olympics, Hungary was invaded and the Iron Curtain got a lot thicker. There was much concern about cruelty to sharks, and the horrors of country pubs persisted.  

The Born In ... series is has been created to record the events that made news in Australia year-by-year. Each volume describes the happenings that affected people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things you'd forgotten or didn't know about. They're also designed to get the older (and younger) generations talking about the past to rediscover heritage that otherwise would be forgotten.
