In Moore’s first season at Fulham, the team reached the FA Cup Final. Fulham teammate Les Strong photographed the squad after the semi-final, once they learned their opponents in the deciding match were to be Moore’s former club, West Ham. The image parodies the popular West Ham anthem, ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’. Fulham proved an enjoyable place for Moore to wind down his career. He briefly joined the burgeoning football scene in North America at San Antonio Thunder, before returning to Fulham for one last season. He played his last match in May 1977, retiring at the age of thirty-six.

The rock band Queen release their epic single Bohemian Rhapsody which reaches Number 1 in the pop charts and stays there for nine weeks. It is the only single to have been a Christmas Number 1 twice, due to its re-release in 1991 following Freddie Mercury's death, and the promotional video is often regarded as the first real music video.


The communist organisation, Khymer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, takes over Cambodia renaming it Democratic Kampuchea. Khymer Rouge began its policy of forcible relocating the urban population to the countryside and brutally purging those sectors of society considered by Pol Pot to be a potential threat to the revolution: Buddhist monks, people with education, disabled people, and ethnic minorities.
