The Conservative Party are re-elected for a fourth successive term 9 April - General Election: The Conservative Party are re-elected for a fourth successive term, in their first election under John Major's leadership. With the government's victory in the election confirmed, John Major assures the public that he will lead the country out of recession that has blighted it for nearly two years. 11 April - Publication of The Sun newspaper's iconic front page headline 'It's The Sun Wot Won It', as the tabloid newspaper claims it won the general election for the Conservatives with its anti-Kinnock front page headline on election day. 13 April - Neil Kinnock resigns as leader of the Labour Party following the defeat of his party in the General Election. he had led the party for eight-and-a-half years since October 1983, and was the longest serving opposition leader in British political history. Diana: Her True Story 7 June - A controversial new biography of Diana, Princess of Wales, Diana: Her True Story, written by Andrew Morton, is published, revealing that she has made five suicide attempts following her discovery that The Prince of Wales had resumed an affair with his previous girlfriend Mrs Parker-Bowles shortly after Prince William's birth in 1982. The late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, reacted with "utter abhorrence" to Diana, Princess of Wales's decision to "wash the dirty linen in public" by disclosing details of the breakdown of her marriage. An official biography published today describes how Queen Elizabeth was "deeply shocked" when it emerged that Princess Diana had collaborated with Andrew Morton on the book Diana: Her True Story, which caused a sensation when it was published in 1992. She was also dismayed by the Prince of Wales's decision to discuss his private life with the broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby for a TV programme in which he admitted he had been unfaithful. Queen Elizabeth revealed her thoughts about her grandson's divorce in a series of previously unpublished interviews with Sir Eric Anderson, the former Provost of Eton College, which were made available to the biographer William Shawcross. "It is always a mistake to talk about your marriage," she told Mr Anderson, who spent a total of 20 hours interviewing her. Details of Queen Elizabeth's thoughts on the Royal divorce are contained in Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother: The Official Biography, which was commissioned by the Queen. In 1992, Andrew Morton's book disclosed that the Princess of Wales had attempted suicide on at least five occasions in the 1980s, suffered from bulimia and felt rejected both by Prince Charles and other members of the Royal family, including the Queen. At the time of its publication, it was rumoured that the Princess herself had helped Mr Morton with the book, and after her death in 1997 Mr Morton confirmed that the Princess had indeed been the main source, and had even checked the proofs of the book for accuracy. In 1995 the Princess recorded a Panorama interview in which she talked about the Prince of Wales's affair with the then Camilla Parker Bowles, saying: "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded." Punch ends 150 years of satire The editors of Punch, Britain's oldest satirical magazine, announce that it will be discontinued due to massive losses. It has been in circulation since 1841. After Years of reports of the imminent demise of Punch had their moment of truth when United Newspapers, owner of the magazine, said it would close on April 8 1992 after 151 years. Staff were told that United had had enough of low sales, disappointing advertising revenue, and losses running at up to £2 million a year. Unless a buyer can be found, what was once Britain's leading humorous magazine but which became the butt of the lampooners will publish only two more issues. The old joke, "Punch is not as funny as it used to be - but then again it never was", drew little laughs as it folded. Four years later the Egyptian businessman Mohamed al Fayed brought it back to life. He funded new exposés on the likes of Peter Mandelson, the architect of New Labour, and the media mogul Rupert Murdoch. But eventually it was costing £40,000 per issue to produce with subscriptions at only 6,000 and Mr Al Fayed closed the title again in 2002. A website still exists for the magazine, reported to have at one time refused articles by Charles Dickens, with many hoping it could make a comeback and regain its cutting-edge image. Bring back Eldorado The soap, which cost British taxpayers £10m - with £2m alone being blown on the huge set in the town of Coín in Malaga - only ran for one year before being axed by incoming director general Alan Yentob in 1993. The 'sunshine soap', which aired three times-a-week and was based around the lives of ex-pats living in the Costa Del Sol, only ran for 156 episodes from July 6 1992 until July 9 1993. It had been blasted by critics for it 'amateurish acting' and 'very unconvincing storylines' and is now a byword for a TV show which flops. But BBC staff have urged the new director general George Entwistle to 'consider' bringing the soap back to our screens - saying it will help brink a 'chink of sunlight' into recession-hit Britain. The show started with an audience of 8m, dipping to 3.5m, but stabilising at 5m by the time it was axed - which is 'not bad' in today's viewing figures. The set in Spain once used by the BBC's soap opera flop Eldorado is now a ghost town. The collection of deserted whitewashed buildings has been preserved by the heat and the dry mountain air in a pine forest 10 miles north-east of Marbella. The purpose-built site provided the backdrop to the doomed 1992 serial, which lasted just 156 episodes before being axed despite costing licence payers more than £10 million. Much of the money was spent on creating the set, which was supposed to replicate the sunshine and simplicity of life in Australian soaps such as Home and Away and Neighbours. Fifteen years after it was created, the set lies empty except for the former dressing rooms which are rented out to holidaymakers. The 18 apartments and three villas are empty and the once-alluring crystal blue swimming pool has turned green and is used by ducks. Apart from graffiti and beer cans left by local teenagers who hang around the area, the set looks the same as it did when new BBC1 controller Alan Yentob axed it in July 1993. Facades, including the front of what is supposed to be a traditional Spanish church, appear just as new as they did in 1992. The site was briefly used as a holiday camp but that suffered the same fate as the programme, which was based on the lives of British ex-pats in Spain. Eldorado remains the biggest British television flop and became a byword for failure following its year on the airwaves. It was designed to replace Terry Wogan's chat show, Wogan, and producers hoped its sex-and-Sangria cheeriness would appeal to viewers fed up with the drab grittiness of EastEnders and the early-1990s recession. However, the use of mostly untrained actors, the mixture of Spanish and English dialogue, persistent sound problems and appalling reviews sank the programme for good. It ended as implausibly as it began, with one of the main characters, Marcus Tandy, played by Jesse Birdsall, escaping an attempt on his life with his car being blown up, and sailing off into the distance on a boat, with his girlfriend Pilar. It has emerged that the set of another abandoned soap, Brookside, is also lying abandoned. The Merseyside cul-de-sac, known to millions of viewers as Brookside Close, was refurbished by developers after the programme ended in 2003 but has failed to attract interest from buyers who are now offering the entire site for £2 million. Whatever happened to Antonia de Sancha - the kiss-and-tell lover who brought down David Mellor? No one could blame Antonia de Sancha for being a little peeved. There she is, sitting outside her favourite restaurant in west London, when a passing photographer captures a not particularly flattering image of her. Said image is then published and compared unfavourably with those of the past, in an apparent indictment of the human ageing process. In fact, de Sancha takes her sudden and random re-emergence into the spotlight with bemused good grace. “What is this all about?” she asks, managing a wry smile. “What am I supposed to have done?” Nothing, really. The picture has merely made people curious about what has happened in the 20 years since she made a brief, memorable foray on to the public stage, sowing an image in the mind that time cannot wither: David Mellor, the Secretary of State for National Heritage, cavorting with her in a Chelsea FC strip. Behind his wife’s back, obviously. No matter that the actress’s description of her affair with Mellor was flawed from a factual point of view, it was enough to hole his career below the waterline. A sometimes abrasive and arrogant character, he was the first in a long line of Tory politicians to fall victim to weakness for the flesh during the John Major era. Tim Yeo, Hartley Booth, the Earl of Caithness, Piers Merchant… the tabloid scalps multiplied as the 1990s progressed, undoing Major’s “Back to Basics” morality drive and undermining his government. For a few weeks in 1992, de Sancha was hot property, managed to perfection by Max Clifford, then king of kiss-and-tell PR. She earned £35,000 from her disclosures, but there was a cost to her theatrical career. Now, she spends much of her time with friends in a small Spanish restaurant on the Portobello Road, apparently underemployed. 1992 Timeline January - Statistics show that economic growth returned during the final quarter of 1991 after five successive quarters of contraction. 9 January - Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown proposes a £3billion package which would create 400,000 jobs in 12 months.
