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 Maya Zapata and Billy Lush. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Physical by Olivia Newton-John. In UK Under Pressure by Queen & David Bowie was in the top 5 hits. Quest for Fire, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1981 while Elvis by Albert Goldman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Darkroom. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 005 or Kick.
