On this day;

In 1996, two cats were married in a $28,000 wedding in Thailand’s largest discotheque. This is due to the groom, Phet, having a rare optical defect known as ‘diamond-eye’ which is considered a symbol of luck.

In 1948, paleoanthropologist Mary Leakey discovers the 18 million year-old fossil remains of Proconsul africanus – ancestor of apes and humans.

In 1987, George Michael releases the hit single Faith.

Producer Leon Bishop joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to elaborate on these events from history.
