Monday October 01, 1990

US date format: 10/1/1990, UK date format: 1/10/1990

It was Monday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 1, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Charlie McDonnell and Eric Poncet. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Close To You by Maxi Priest. In UK Show Me Heaven by Maria McKee was in the top 5 hits. Mr. Destiny, directed by James Orr, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while Prime Directive by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Going Places. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Test Drive III: The Passion or Double Hawk.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
