    Pathé films capturing the important things from the hot summer of 1976.

    NSFW - though no actual nudity

    Sorry mate. It's been a few decades since I wrote to him. I'll spell it correctly if I ever have occasion to write his name again. I know you Yorkshire punters like to protect your own

    That's alright, i'll let it slide under the circumstances. How are you getting on with the lockdown? I've been a bit concerned it must be said - not the social isolation and limited geographical movement elements, I know you're an expert at that stuff. It's the exercising every day thing that's got me worried for you.

    It's interesting how after 1968/69, the world was thinking we'd be going towards more and more nudity, but we haven't gone much further than the 70s; in some regions and years, clothing has even started being more covering than that.
    Sure, there may be more sexual content in movies, music etc, but clothing has found the limit of what can/can't be done.

    Ah, the 1970s.

    When everything was beige.

    And we were expecting an ice age shortly.

    Remind me how those glaciers are doing.
