The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Freya Mavor and Johnny Gaudreau. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Can't Help Falling In Love by UB40. In UK Living On My Own by Freddie Mercury was in the top 5 hits. Manhattan Murder Mystery, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1993 while Hill Towns by Anne Rivers Siddons was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Politically Incorrect. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dogfight - 80 Years of Aerial Warfare or Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind.
