Did these events happen in 1972 or not?

A lot happened 45 years ago.

The early 1970s were trying times. Although the turbulence of the 1960s was dying down, the chaos of Vietnam and the Watergate scandal was just ramping up.

Amidst all the disarray, there were some memorable pop culture moments. Television was becoming more diverse, movie ratings allowed for the deconstruction of censorship in film, and music was becoming more experimental.
