FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “1962: A cultural turning point for Britain? • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
On October 5, 1962, The #Beatles released their first single, “Love Me Do”, on the very same day that the world premiere of “Dr. No” kicked off the James Bond franchise in London. For historian David Kynaston, if you had to pinpoint a specific date that marked the start of the Swinging #Sixties, this was it.

He joined us for Perspective.
