50 Who : 1968

1968 the year Martin Luther King Jr and Robert Kennedy were assassinated; Spain won the Eurovision Song Contest with the catchy song “La, la, la” by Massiel; West Bromwich Album beat Everton 1-0 to lift the FA Cup; Oliver! and 2001 : A Space Odyssey were released in cinemas; Pink Floyd release A Saucerful of Secrets.

In this year Frazer Hines released a novelty single entitled ‘Who’s Doctor Who?” written by Barry Mason and Les Reed . Much like Roberta Tovey’s effort this rather catchy song had some interesting lyrics. Needless to say it didn’t sell millions and lead Frazer onto a singing career.

“He has a time machine
To travel through the ages
To take a look at history
He simply turns the pages
He knows a Prince or two
And kings are two-a-penny
He never thinks of money no
Although he hasn’t any”
