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. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Un-Break My Heart by Toni Braxton. In UK Professional Widow (It's Got To Be Big) by Tori Amos was in the top 5 hits. The Truce, directed by Francesco Rosi, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Dilbert Principle by Scott Adams was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Brass Eye. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dreams to Reality or Beach Festival World Championship 1997.
