For anyone who can remember 40 years ago - that's 1976 - it was the year of a record heatwave, Brotherhood of Man won the Eurovision Song Contest with "Save Your Kisses for Me" and James Callaghan became Labour Prime Minister.

But this very day 40 years ago, May the 24th, Bradford boxer Richard Dunn took on Muhammad Ali for the World Heavyweight title - one of only four British boxers ever to take on 'The Greatest" - in Munich.

He may have lost the bout but his place in boxing history was assured. He'll be joining us on Calendar later but let's have a bit of a wallow in 1976 nostalgia.
