The Ebola virus kills 244 Africans in Kikwit, Zaire in Central Africa. The passing away of Jerry Garcia: In August of 1995 an American icon passed away. Though some feel as if this event wasnt so tragic, the world would never be the same. Two years before the next general election, the British economy appears to be recovering rapidly after a longer and deeper recession than almost anyone expected. Wary of repeating the mistake of Norman Lamont, his predecessor, the chancellor still refuses to talk about “green shoots”. There is reason for caution: even as the data have improved, the housing market has taken off and the country’s mood has turned up, the public finances remain disappointing. Government borrowing has come down but, as the Institute for Fiscal Studies says, “a lower-than-expected growth rate of tax revenue” is undermining deficit reduction. 1995: 'Queen of hearts' reveals affair Diana, Princess of Wales' revelations in a BBC Panorama interview about an adulterous affair she had during her marriage to Prince Charles increased pressure for the royal couple to divorce. In a TV programme watched by millions, Princess Diana also spoke of her hurt over the prince's relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. She famously said, "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded". But she denied wanting a divorce and said she wanted to be remembered as the "queen of people's hearts". The interview, in which the Princess talked candidly of her failed marriage to the Prince of Wales, was watched by 21 million viewers. Eric Cantona's kung-fu kick of 1995 Were it not for what happened in the 56th minute, there would not be much about the Carling Premiership encounter between Crystal Palace and Manchester United on 25 January 1995 to stick in the minds of the 18,244 in attendance. A nervy stalemate, two years into English football’s rebranding, as a commercial for the “whole new ball game” it should have been referred to the Advertising Standards Authority. United had arrived in south London with their record signing Andy Cole. But any hope that the 22 year old striker bought from Newcastle for £7million would immediately strike up a rapport with the team’s playmaker Eric Cantona were disabused soon after kick off. Cantona seemed more interested in pursuing a private feud with his marker, the Palace centre back Richard Shaw, than in establishing a relationship with his new colleague. All first half the pair bickered, as Shaw followed the Frenchman all over the pitch, breathing down the upturned collar of his black United shirt. Much to Cantona’s chagrin, the referee Alan Wilkie had not noted any transgression in Shaw’s work, leaving him free to go about his business untroubled by official sanction. In the 56th minute Cantona, a man who had long maintained a combustible response to perceived injustice, exploded. As the pair gave chase to a long punt from the goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, Cantona flicked a sly kick which connected with his marker’s shin. Shaw went down and Wilkie did not hesitate. He pulled the red card from his pocket. It was the fifth time Cantona had been dismissed in the myriad colours of United. But it was not his dismissal that is so vividly remembered. As he made his way to the dressing room, along the front of the stand where the Palace fans were stationed, a 20-year-old glazier called Matthew Simmons ran towards him, shouting. Later he was to claim that what he said was no more provocative than “it’s an early bath for you, Mr Cantona.” Witnesses in the immediate vicinity recall his language was somewhat more direct. “Provocation we always had,” Cantona said recently of the incident. “Millions of times people say these things, and then one day you don’t accept it. Why? It’s not about words. It’s about how you feel at that moment. One day you react, but the words are exactly the same as those you have heard a million times, so it is impossible to say why you react.” But react Cantona did. He leapt the barrier between stand and pitch, feet forward in a perfectly executed martial arts kick, to plant both sets of studs firmly in Simmons’s chest. Then, after falling back on to the pitch side, he picked himself up and threw a sharp right-hander. “All I saw was Eric in trouble,” Schmeichel recalls. “We were a team. We were all in it together, whatever. So I went over to pull him away. It wasn’t until I saw the pictures later that I realised what had happened.” It was not the first or last occasion that a sportsman had attacked a paying customer. In 1979, several members of the Boston Bruins ice hockey team had left the ice to engage in running battles with fans of the New York Rangers. It was not even the first time a Manchester United player had done it: after a match at Luton Town in 1960, Harry Gregg had hit a lippy fan so hard that he knocked him out. But this was different. Unlike when Gregg delivered instant retribution, this time there were cameras to record the moment. and Cantona’s assault became a story that engulfed the British media for days, migrating from the back pages to the front, filling broadcast time, furring up the wavelengths via that newly invented barometer of public opinion the football phone-in. There were even questions asked about it in the House of Commons." rel="nofollow"> George Graham Sacked By Arsenal On February 21, 1995 George Graham given his marching orders from the Arsenal Manager’s Office. At the time, Arsenal were struggling a little in the league, had lost a League Cup quarter final to Liverpool, been dumped out of the FA Cup after a third round replay by Millwall, and (as Cup Winners’ Cup holders) had also lost the Super Cup to AC Milan. But of course all that had no bearing on George’s sacking, which was more down to brown envelopes of cash, as the word ‘bung’ embedded itself in the football lexicon. One of Arsenal's most successful managers, George Graham was the first and only casualty of the bungs scandal which hit English football over a decade ago. During a nine-year stint at Highbury, Graham guided the Gunners to two league titles, two league cups, an FA Cup and a European Cup Winners Cup. But the Scot's reputation was tarnished forever when he was found guilty of receiving money as part of a transfer deal by a Football Association inquiry in 1995. It was discovered that Graham had taken over £400,000 in illegal payments from Norwegian agent Rune Hauge to sign players Pal Lydersen and John Jensen. After being sacked by Arsenal following the initial allegations in February, he was found guilty of misconduct by the FA five months later. Graham insisted that he had received "unsolicited gifts" and not an illegal bung from Hauge - an assertion he later repeated in his autobiography. But Graham's claims did not stop him being punished with a year-long ban from football. Despite his tarnished image, the former Arsenal coach returned to management in September 1996. He took over the reins at Leeds and also had a three-year stint at Tottenham until 2001. Although many were called and rumours were plenty during the FA's bung investigation, only Graham was found guilty. This led Luton Town manager Mike Newell to say in January 2006: "If George Graham is the only one guilty of taking a bung in the last 10 years, I would be absolutely amazed." Hugh Grant was arrested for lewd conduct Hugh Grant, the British star of the film Four Weddings and a Funeral, was arrested in Hollywood yesterday and charged with indecent conduct with a prostitute in a public place after meeting her on Sunset Boulevard. Grant, 34, whose girlfriend is Elizabeth Hurley, the actress, was arrested by vice squad police, who alleged that he drove up to a prostitute at about 1.30 am. Officer Lorie Taylor, of Los Angeles Police, said: "Grant was observed to drive a vehicle up to a prostitute and allow her to enter. They drove a short distance to a residential street and engaged in lewd conduct. "Vice officers walked up on the car and observed the act. Both the prostitute, described by police as a black woman named Divine Brown, 23, and Grant were taken into custody," said Officer Taylor. Officer Cory Palka said Grant was "extremely embarrassed" when the two officers introduced themselves, but was "very nice and very co-operative". Grant was released on bail. He and Brown, who was charged with soliciting, are due to to appear in court on July 18. Eduardo Funes, a police spokesman, said that Grant would not have to appear. He could be represented by a lawyer. "It's a misdemeanour charge, which carries a custodial sentence," he said. "You could be sent to jail for up to six months or have a $1,000 fine, or both. "It's up to the judge. It depends on whether there is a track record." The area in which police allege that Grant stopped is a notorious haunt of prostitutes, both male and female. It is also heavily patrolled by undercover police. After his arrest, he said: "I did something completely insane. I have hurt people I love and embarrassed people I work with. For both things I am more sorry than I can say." A friend of Grant's said last night: "This all seems very odd. It doesn't seem at all like Hugh." Grant, one of the film industry's most in-demand actors, is in Hollywood to promote his new film Nine Months, advertised on posters along Sunset Boulevard. Trevor Jordache's body was buried under the patio When there’s a knock on the door, Lee Carroll knows exactly what it will be for. And, chances are, it won’t be a neighbour calling for a chat but an excited fan wanting to look at his patio! “I get at least one person a fortnight knocking at the door, asking to come in and looking around my house,” says Lee. “And they always want to go in my garden...” For Lee, 32, is resident of what used to be one of Merseyside’s most famous addresses, Number 10 Brookside Close. Former ‘home’ of the Corkhills, it was also the scene of what soap viewers voted one of the most dramatics story lines ever: the body under the patio. Wife beater and child abuser Trevor Jordache (Bryan Murray) lay undetected there for two years before his body was discovered 30 years ago, in hit Mersey TV soap Brookside. Of course there might be a reason why Lee was one of the first real life residents. His father, Wally, was the businessman who bought the Close for £735,000 when it came up for auction in 2008 following the cancellation of the Channel 4 programme in 2003. “We spent about £1m renovating the houses and making them fit to live in,” says Lee, “because they were essentially just shells. We re-did everything barring the bricks and mortar on the outside. We spent more on getting them ready to live in than we did buying them - it would have been cheaper to start from scratch! “We had to put in new kitchens, new roofs, new windows and new walls - because of the cameras, some of the walls were down.” “There were no telephone wires, no water mains so we had to dig up all the gardens to lay water pipes, and put in electric cables. We even had to re-plaster the walls - everything was new.” There were 13 houses in Brookside Close, some of which were seen as on-screen sets and homes of the famous residents, others of which housed administration, make-up, post production and canteen facilities for cast and crew. After the end of Brookside the entire close was sold to a developer who then stripped, gutted and attempted to rebuild the interior of the houses before putting them up for sale in 2007." rel="nofollow"> 1995 Timeline 1 January - Frederick West, the 53-year-old Gloucester builder charged with 12 women and children (including two of his own daughters), is found hanged in his cell at Winson Green Prison, Birmingham.

Céline Dion's "Think Twice", which was released in October 1994 yet took until the end of January to reach the top, was the first UK number 1 single not to be available on vinyl in any form. Around the middle of the year, the way singles entered the chart started to change. Instead of entering low and climbing up to their peak, singles would now usually enter at their peak, and then fall down the chart. In May, Robson & Jerome became the first British act to reach number 1 with "Unchained Melody", after having sung the song on the ITV programme Soldier Soldier. In May, music featured in an advertising campaign for Guinness reached number 2 – mambo tune "Guaglione" by Pérez Prado was a massive hit and the advert featured on an accompanying screensaver. This was also the year which saw Britpop at its most popular. A highly publicised chart battle in August saw Oasis and Blur battling it out for the number 1 position, having both released their singles on the same day. Blur won the singles battle, with "Country House" beating Oasis' "Roll with It" to the top spot, but Oasis, with (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, would go on to greatly outsell Blur's album, the album of which would eventually become the second biggest album in the UK. After a decade in the business Pulp secured a first number one album while Britpop elder statesman Paul Weller also benefited from a return to popular and critical favour. Singles that went on to sell over a million copies were Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise", the first rap single to sell over a million in the UK, both of Robson & Jerome's songs ("Unchained Melody" / "White Cliffs of Dover", the biggest selling single of the year, and "I Believe" / "Up on the Roof") and Michael Jackson's "Earth Song". In addition, a second remix of New Order's "Blue Monday" (reaching number 17) pushed sales of that song over a million as well. In all, there were 17 number one singles in 1995. As the 1990s continued the amount started to increase, and there wouldn't be a total as low as 1995's. Composer Michael Tippett celebrated his ninetieth birthday on 2 January. the occasion was marked by special events in Britain, Canada and the US, including the premiere of his final work, The Rose Lake. A collection of his essays, Tippett on Music, was published in the same year. The other most notable British classical composer of the year was Karl Jenkins, whose album Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary was released in September to become a huge hit, thanks to the music's exposure in television advertisements.
