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.  

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 their birth year they can't remember a thing which isn't surprising. 

In 1958 the Christian brothers bought a pub and raffled it; some clergy thought that Christ would not be pleased. Circuses were losing animals at a great rate. Officials were in hot water because the Queen Mother wasn't given a sun shade. School milk was hot news and bread home deliveries were under fire.
