From the BBC News site: a video of Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first person in the UK to make a long-distance phone call without an operator's assistance. (The year was 1958.)

  1. Nothing in French Helas. This year, I read the biography of the famous Georgiana Spencer, very interresting, some royal French biogaphies about Anne d'Autriche, Marie-Therese d'Autriche, the wife of Louis 14. I hope news of England, specially about George 6.
