As people get a little older, they become more reflective, and they start to look back at their teens and childhood ... but when they get back to 1957, when it all began for them, they can't remember a thing which isn't surprising. As in reality who does remember what happened during they year they were born?

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.  

In 1957 Britain's Red Dean said Chinese Reds were OK. America avoided balance-of-payments problems by sending entertainers here. Sydney's Opera House will use lotteries to raise funds. The Russians launched Sputnik and a dog got a free ride. A bodkin crisis shook the nation.
