(Op 1 mei 1970 begint de zeezender Capital Radio vanaf het zendschip King David, dat verankerd ligt in internationale wateren zes mijl uit de kust bij Noordwijk haar uitzendingen op de 270 meter in de middengolf in opdracht van de International Broadcasting Society (ISB) De ISB werd in 1961 opgericht door twee Wereldomroep-medewerkers, de Canadees Tim Thomason en de Nederlandse Berthe Beydals, later zijn echtgenote.

De zender wil functioneren zonder winstoogmerk en door godsdienstuitzendingen haar kosten dekken. Er wordt een oude kustvaarder aangekocht en omgedoopt tot King David. De zender komt uit Engeland. Een 10 kW zender, die eerder dienst heeft gedaan voor Radio 270. Het kantoor wordt gevestigd in Liechtenstein en de IBS krijgt zelfs toestemming onder de Liechtensteinse vlag te varen als een soort marineschip. Staf en bemanning wordt in keurige uniformen gestoken en begin juni bestoken de eerste programma’s de ether. Afgezien van de legaliteit door middel van de Liechtensteinse vlag heeft de King David nog enkele vreemde bijzonderheden. Voor het eerst zijn op een piratenschip vrouwelijke bemanningsleden en het schip is uitgerust met een speciaal geconstrueerde ringvormige antenne.

Radio Capitol is geen lang leven beschoren. Op 10 november 1970 slaat het met windkracht negen van zijn ankers en drijft reddeloos naar het strand van Noordwijk. De machinist is niet aan boord en de bemanning kan de motor niet aan de praat krijgen. Geld voor berging is er niet. Op 21 mei 1971 gaat IBS op de fles. Geraamde schulden: bijna twee miljoen gulden. Aan de droom van een piratenschip op ideële gronden is een einde gekomen.)

(Op 17 november 1970 vekrijgt Douglas Engelbart octrooi op de muis, destijds een houten doosje met twee metalen wieltjes. Het apparaatje wordt op zijn laboratorium zowel bug (kever) als mouse (muis) genoemd; de laatste naam blijft het meest hangen.)

(Op 18 november 1970 suggereert de Amerikaanse scheikundige/biochemicus Linus Pauling voor het eerst in het openbaar dat vitamine C helpt bij een verkoudheid.)
