Here was the News 1960: Part 1

Synopsis
In 1959, the launch of Anglia Television brought regional news to television sets for the first time. This DVD presents a selection of local news items, from flooding to fashions. The headlines of 1959 and 1960 included: Merging the Norfolk and Suffolk Regiments, Norwich, Gorleston, Ipswich and Peterborough football clubs, Princess Margaret, Winston Churchill, Douglas Bader and Hughie Green. Other topics in the news were the question of whether new flats would ruin Frinton; should Norfolk have an open prison and why were people shopping at the new supermarkets.
