1967 Events

Cathy Come Home sparks housing row

January 11. The controversial TV play, ‘Cathy Come Home’ was repeated tonight despite complaints from local authority officials that it was ‘full of blunders.’ The play’s harrowing portrayal of a young homeless couple shocked Britons when it was first shown and led to the establishment of a new charity,Shelter, to help the homeless. Author Jeremy Sandford says ‘Cathy’ was based on a real girl.

Fraud charges after insurance collapse

February 10. Five days after an extraordinary television interview with David Frost, Dr Emil Savundra was arrested tonight and charged with fraud. Savundra is the former chairman of the Fire, Auto and Marine Insurance company which collapsed last year with losses estimated at £1.4 million.

During the interview, Savundra met some of his victims ‘I do not want to cross swords with the peasants’ he told Frost.

Ali stripped of title for refusing draft

April 30. Muhammad Ali, previously Cassius Clay and unquestionably the best heavyweight boxer in the world, has been stripped of his world title by all the American boxing associations for formally refusing to be inducted into military service.

Ali, who is 25, and who has rejected the name Clay since joining the Black Moslem sect, faces a minimum jail sentence of five years if he is found guilty of draft evasion, but the champion, who has defended his title successfully nine times since dramatically taking the crown from Sonny Liston in February 1964, says that as a minister in the Black Moslem faith, he ‘cannot be true to my belief in my religion’ by accepting the country’s call to arms. ‘ I ain't got no quarrel with them Viet Congs,’ he protested.

Rolling Stones in court on drugs charges

May 10. In two separate incidents three members of the Rolling Stones rock group are currently facing trials for drug use.  After a raid on February 12 on guitarist Keith Richard’s home in Sussex, Richard, the lead singer Mick Jagger and an art gallery owner, Robert Fraser, all appeared today before Chichester magistrates charged with drug offences. After pleading not guilty, they await a jury trial.

Another member of the band, the guitarist Brian Jones, was arrested today in London after police raided his Kensington apartment; with another man he, too, faces drugs charges.

Beatles’ manager, Epstein,is found dead

August 27. Brian Epstein, the former Liverpool record store owner who discovered and then managed the Beatles, is dead. He was found this afternoon when his butler broke into the locked bedroom of his house in London’s Belgravia. Mr Epstein appeared to have taken an overdose of sleeping pills. Police said foul play was not suspected.

As crowds of pop fans filled the street outside, and many of Epstein’s friends and associates arrived to speak to the police, the Beatles, who have been involved in five days of meditation with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Wales, broke off their retreat to return immediately to London. John Lennon, visibly shocked said ‘I do not know where we would have been without Brian.
