Missing Beaumont Children - 1966 This is one of the saddest stories I've ever come across: Australia's most famous abduction case. On January 26, 1966, three siblings under the age of 10 vanished from Glenelg Beach on Australia Day, the country's national summer holiday. To many Australians it is the day their country lost its innocence. The three Beaumont children - Jane, nine; Arnna, seven; and Grant, four -- headed alone to the resort town of Glenelg Beach, a five-minute bus ride from their Adelaide home at about 10 a.m. Due back at 12 noon, their parents raised the alarm when they failed to return by 3:30 p.m. Several witnesses said the three Beaumont children had been spotted in the presence of a blond man at the beach. He was never identified and the children have not been sighted since. Their disappearance spawned one of the largest police investigations in Australian criminal history. Understandably, it forever changed parents' attitudes in Australia about how they supervised their youngsters. In all likelihood, the children, who had often traveled to the resort without their parents, had become friendly with their abductor in earlier visits to Glenelg Beach. After one such visit, Arnna told her mother that Jane "had a boyfriend" at the beach. The mother assumed Arnna was talking about another child--not an adult. On the morning the Beaumont children vanished, Jane bought some treats from a refreshment stand with a one-pound note. Her mother had only given Jane enough coins to cover the children's two-way bus fares. The case remains unsolved.

1924 Olympic Rugby Final You may have to watch this clip through the appropriate link. Nevertheless, here are a few minutes of the gold-medal rugby match from the 1924 Paris Olympics. It was the fourth time rugby had been part of the Summer Olympics. In 1924 only three countries entered teams: the United States, Romania, and France. In the round-robin event, France crushed Romania 61-3. The Americans blasted the Romanians 37-0 to set up a championship encounter against the French. The host French showed great animosity against the American team (that was mostly made up of students from Stanford University). The French refused to allow the Americans to have anything resembling a practice field, so they ended up working out in a local park. The Americans were kicked out of their hotel and also lost about $4,000 in valuables when their supposedly secure locker room was broken into by thieves. Undeterred, the Americans, despite being 5:1 underdogs in wagering, thumped the French 17-3 to take the gold medals. They needed a police escort to leave the stadium safely. One American substitute was knocked cold when he was struck over the head with a spectator's walking stick! Rugby has not been in any Olympics since that time, but it will return to the Games in 2016.

Real People - NBC Show Here's the intrduction from a 1980 episode of Real People--a popular NBC anthology show that ran for five years. Originally designed as a 'short-flight series' in the spring of 1979, it drew surprisingly strong ratings. Naturally NBC made it a regular prime-time show. Real People featured offbeat news stories and the exploits of eccentric folks shown to a live studio audience. The show had an overabundance of hosts. Among the regular hosts were Sarah Purcell, Byron Allen, John Barbour and Skip Stephenson. Real People finshed a strong 12th in overall TV ratings for the 1980-81 season. Its success spawned the very similar That's Incredible! on ABC. Here's a little-known fact: Richard Simmons was first widely exposed to American TV audiences on Real People.

TV Flop - Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show Despite Chuck Barris and NBC constantly clashing over the content of The Gong Show, the network was desperate for any prime-time hit in the late 1970s. Therefore, in early 1978, the zany Barris was permitted to create and host The Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show--an hour-long variety program that featured guest appearances by celebrities and encore performances by some of the more memorable oddball acts from The Gong Show. Few people saw it as it was scheduled on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m--directly against the two most popular TV shows in America at the time: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. It was cancelled in April after eight episodes had aired. Noel Holsten, the Orlando Sentinel-Star's TV critic, wrote, "[Barris] reeled around the stage as though he'd been gobbling hallucinogenic mushrooms and looking somewhat like a subterranean fungus." Barris accepted Holsten's bad review with cheerfulness: He read it during an episode of The Gong Show. (The Gong Show was booted off NBC in June.) Here's a brief promo for the February 28 premiere episode of the Rah-Rah Show.

Ian Turnbull - 5 Goals on 5 shots On February 2, 1977 Ian Turnbull, a 23-year-old defenceman for the Toronto Maple Leafs, set two NHL records that still stand: He scored five goals on five shots in Toronto's 9-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings at Maple Leaf Gardens. No defenceman has equalled the feat and no other NHL player, regardless of his position, has ever scored five goals on five shots. Turnbull scored 22 goals the entire season. Here's his fifth goal--a beauty.

The Rutles Piggy In The Middle Many considered the Rutles' Tragical History Tour more tragic than historical. When it was broadcast on the CBC on April 1st, 1968, it was even shown upside-down. People didn't know what to make of it. I realize now that what the Rutles were saying is that we ourselves should be upside-down when we were watching it. Then it would all make sense. Hundreds of young people all over the world joined me in doing just that. We were all part of something special. In retrospect I think it was all about the peace movement. It's hard to fight when you're upside-down. Mind you, the movie still didn't make sense, but the music was amazing.

This Week in Baseball - 1979 Beginning in 1977, This Week in Baseball was a 30-minute syndicated highlight show packaged by Major League Baseball. It ususally aired on stations that had the rights to broadcast MLB games. In its glory years, Mel Allen was the narrator (as he was in this brief clip from an August 1979 episode). With the establishment of ESPN and nightly sports highlight shows, TWIB gradually lost its importance. Over time TWIB changed from a general highlights show to mainly fluff pieces that focused on specific teams or players. To many fans, Mel Allen's death in 1996 was a clear milestone that marked the show's slow, irretrievable decline. It was cancelled in 2012.

Frank Bank aka Lumpy Rutherford Dies Fans of the classic sitcom Leave it to Beaver will be saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Bank, one day after his 71st birthday, on April 13, 2013. Bank played the not-too-bright Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford. In the show's first season Lumpy was an oversized bully who terrorized both Wally and Beaver. Later Lumpy became the inseparable friend of Wally and Eddie Haskell. After Leave it to Beaver went off the air in 1963, Bank went on to become a successful stockbroker. At one point he was a business partner of Jerry Mathers who played Beaver Cleaver.
