Half a century ago the UK was in the grip of a brutal winter. How did they cope then and how does it compare with now?

The Big Freeze took hold as Lawrence of Arabia played in the nation's cinemas.

Cold weather reached the UK on 22 December 1962. Snow fell across Scotland on Christmas Eve before sweeping south. The Arctic weather didn't relent until March 1963.

As i recall my dad said it was colder and chiller than today.


“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.”

 

Stephen Hawking
