(Twee dagen later op 21 december 1964 wordt in Groot-Brittannië onder het Labour-bewind de doodstraf afgeschaft. Het is een van de laatste landen in West-Europa dat zijn beulen afdankt. Enkel Frankrijk houdt langer vast aan de doodstraf tot 1977. Hoewel de laatste moordenaar in Groot-Brittannië in 1964 wordt opgeknoopt, staat de herinvoering geregeld op de politieke agenda. Een minderheid binnen de Conservatieve partij ijvert nog steeds voor het in ere herstellen van de galg.)

(Enkele dagen later op 23 december 1970 wordt het hoogste punt bereikt van de North Tower van het World Trade Center in New York. Op 21 maart 1966 werd er begonnen aan het vrijmaken van het 6,5 hectare grote oppervlak. 164 gebouwen en vijf wegen werden gesloopt, in totaal vormden zij dertien huizenblokken. Het slopen verliep echter niet vlekkeloos. Het bouwterrein lag namelijk vol met onbekende kabels, leidingen, oude funderingen, tunneltjes, ondergrondse riviertjes en oude graven. Op 19 juli 1971 wordt het hoogste punt bereikt van de South Tower. De de eerste huurders trekken in januari 1972 in het complex. Dat jaar wordt ook het werk aan de North Tower afgerond. Nadat de South Tower gereed is gekomen wordt het World Trade Center op 4 april 1973 met een feestelijk tintje officieel geopend.)
