  • 27 February - The BBC's Audience Research Dept. filed an Audience Research Report on Spearhead from Space Episode 1. The episode rated a Reaction Index of 54, with new Doctor Jon Pertwee having been "accepted without question".[1]
  • 5 October - In the US, the National Educational Television network was rebranded and relaunched as the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).
