Johnson (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Harold Wilson (Labour), Pope St Paul VI was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Troy Davis and Pete Docter. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Hey Jude by The Beatles. In UK Those Were The Days by Mary Hopkin was in the top 5 hits. Bullitt, directed by Peter Yates, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1968 while The Salzburg Connection by Helen MacInnes was one of the best selling books.
