(Enkele dagen later op 30 september 1938 wordt het eerste nummer van het weekblad Margriet uitgegeven door De Geïllustreerde Pers. Destijds had het als ondertitel Weekblad voor Vrouwen en meisjes wat later veranderde in Weekblad voor Dames. Al vier jaar eerder publiceerde NV Uitgeverij wekelijks het eveneens voor vrouwen bestemde tijdschrift Libelle. Tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog wordt in april 1943 de uitgave van Margriet tijdelijk gestopt. Vanaf november 1945 komt dit damesblad terug al duurt het tot 1949 voor het weer elke week verschijnt. In 1948 wordt het blad Moeder en kind onderdeel van Margriet en in 1950 gebeurt hetzelfde met Cinderella. Op 25 oktober 1952 zit gratis bij de Margriet het eerste Nederlandstalige nummer van het weekblad Donald Duck. Langzamerhand wordt de naam De Geïllustreerde Pers vervangen door VNU Tijdschriften. In 2001 koopt het Finse bedrijf Sanoma voor 1,25 miljard euro de VNU Consumer Information Group waaronder Donald Duck, Margriet, Libelle en vele andere tijdschriften behoren.)

(Het Evoluon is een opmerkelijk gebouw in Eindhoven in de vorm van een vliegende schotel. Het is bedoeld als uithangbord voor de technologische vooruitgang en dan met name van die aspecten waarbij het van oorsprong Eindhovense bedrijf Philips betrokken is. Vandaag precies 49 jaar geleden op 24 september 1966 wordt ter gelegenheid van het 75-jarig bestaan van Philips in Eindhoven een wetenschap- en techniektentoonstelling in het Evoluon geopend door prins Bernhard. Het gebouw werd door architect Louis Kalff ontworpen. Het Evoluon is van 1966 tot 1989 als educatief technologiemuseum in gebruik en trekt in de jaren zestig en zeventig grote bezoekersaantallen. Dit komt mede omdat het publiek zelf mag experimenteren en gebruik mag maken van demonstratiemodellen. Veel scholen organiseren traditioneel een maal per jaar een reisje Evoluon. In Madurodam staat een miniatuurkopie van dit futuristische gebouw.)

(Op 2 oktober 1966 begint de Televisie Radio Omroep Stichting met uitzendingen als aspirant-omroep. De omroep is opgericht door voormalige REM-medewerkers. De TROS is de eerste nieuweling in het open bestel. Voorzitter Joop Landré opent op radio en televisie officieel de programmering van de TROS. Een show rond Patricia Paay is het eerste televisie-programma van deze omroep.)

(Op 6 oktober 1966 wordt LSD in de Verenigde Staten illegaal verklaard. LSD is een drug die in 1938 kunstmatig werd samengesteld door de Zwitser Albert Hofmann. Pas in 1943 ontdekte Hofmann het sterke effect van de stof dat hallucinaties veroorzaakte toen hij per ongeluk LSD op zijn huid kreeg. De hippies uit de jaren 1960 hebben er op grote schaal gebruik van gemaakt. Velen geloofden dat dit zogenaamde wondermiddel de wereld zou veranderen. In werkelijkheid is LSD een zeer gevaarlijk middel met even schadelijke effecten als andere drugs.)
