US date format: 10/20/1984, UK date format: 20/10/1984

It was Saturday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 20, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (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 Florent Sinama-Pongolle and Leslie Coutterand. In that special week of October people in US were listening to I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder. In UK I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder was in the top 5 hits. The Terminator, directed by James Cameron, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while Pieces Of My Mind by Andrew A. Rooney was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Lucky Luke. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gaplus or Dr. Seuss' Fix-Up the Mix-Up Puzzler.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
