The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, directed by Mark Herman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Heat Lightning by John Sandford was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Review with Myles Barlow. If you liked videogames you were probably playing California Games or Coffeetime Crosswords.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
