In some ways, 1992 feels like the start of something. Looking at what's lined up in this episode, there are a lot of new beginnings. John Major has replaced Margaret Thatcher as leader of the Conservative Party and a general election looks imminent with Labour leading in the opinion polls. In America, under a different system of course, the exact date of the next election is known with George Bush in the final year of his first term. Will he continue or do the Democrats have somebody new waiting in the wings? Throughout eastern Europe and beyond, new countries are coming into existence or old ones are being reborn. Unfortunately, there is “history” between old clans and the old animosity has an opportunity to resurface. In South Africa, apartheid nears it's end while, back home in England, the national sport is about to get it's own new beginning. Welcome to 1992.
