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 Kanae Ito and Konstadinos Filippidis. In that special week of November people in US were listening to You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi. In UK Take My Breath Away (Love Theme From 'Top Gun') by Berlin was in the top 5 hits. Crimes of the Heart, directed by Bruce Beresford, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1986 while Flight Of The Intruder by Stephen Coonts was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gung Ho. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doraemon or King Kong 2: Yomigaeru Densetsu.
