The 13th Eurovision Song Contest took place in the Royal Albert Hall, London, at the height of the swingin’ sixties – which is why more than one of the acts bears a passing resemblance to Austin Powers.
Katie Boyle is our presenter for the evening, hosting her third of four Contests and the first to be broadcast in colour! Lucky viewers in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland could watch the acts in vivid technicolour… so long as they had a colour TV.
The United Kingdom’s Cliff Richard was hot favourite to win the show with an uptempo schlager classic, but ‘congratulations’ were reserved for Spain’s Massiel who beat the Brit by one point with the song La, La, La.
The 1968 Contest will remain on the official Eurovision YouTube channel for a month, so make sure you brush up on your Contest history and watch it before it disappears.
