Ball Games!

Australian Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam shares the joy of the first-time participation of The Australian Soccer team in the Round One finals of the FIFA World Cup.

Meanwhile British Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson is involved with machinations concerning nuclear weapons over the US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement when a key part of the cooperation between the two nations was stopped by the US as a result of the British government's decision not to deploy a new nuclear weapon. The decision was later reversed and cooperation resumed.
