Step back in time and rediscover the events that took place in Australia and elsewhere during 1967. The "Born In ..." Series covers the period 1939-1968 (although not all years are released yet), each volume describing the happenings that affected people during that year. Apart from recording history, the compiler hopes that the books will spark discussions between older and younger generations.

Arranged chronologically by month, Ron Williams has made his way through newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during the year. 

So what did happen in 1867? Well ... postcodes were introduced and you could now pay your debts with a five-dollar note. You could talk-back on radio, about a brand new ABC TV show called "This Day Tonight". There was no point in talking any more to the Privy Council of the Brits - Oz was the only appealing place left to go. Getting  a job was easy with unemployment at 1.8% - better than the 5% 50 years later. Arthur Calwell left at last, Whitlam took his place, Harold Holt drowned, and Menzies wrote his first book after retirement.
