Not a great deal happened today, save the usual mixture of carnage and frivolity around the world which we all know about the moment it happens. Cast your minds back eighty years... On this day in 1930, BBC Radio evening news announced that "Today, there is no news". Apparently the start of the Chittagong Rebellion was too late, it was a Good Friday so no football, and there were no celebrity break-ups. Instead, some light music.
