The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of April people in US were listening to No Scrubs by TLC. In UK Flat Beat by Mr Oizo was in the top 5 hits. The Thirteenth Floor, directed by Josef Rusnak, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Monica'S Story by Andrew Morton was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Futurama. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 3D Ultra Lionel Traintown or Elemental Gimmick Gear.
