News for this October 26th in 1951 had to do with the surprise victory and return of the Conservative Government of Winston Churchill to power in Great Britain.
Speculation was rife over how this turn of events would impact Britain’s future, particularly in the Middle-East where demonstrations were taking place in Egypt and specifically in Iran where the matter of Oil and British interests in the region were concerned. The future was looking murky.
Elsewhere, news on the War in Korea was continuing, the Cold War was underway and the world was its usual uncertain self.
That, and a lot more via this edition of Edward R. Murrow and The News, with Murrow reporting from London and Bill Shadell reporting from New York, for October 26, 1951.

Indie from Poland tonight. Nathalie And The Loners is fronted and founded by Natalia Fiedorczuk. They’ve been around for a little while and, as of yesterday (October 25th), released a new single, which happens to be tonight’s track.
Sines (the new track) just came out and it’s not really clear whether it’s coming along with an album soon or not. But it’s great to see the spirit of Indie/Alternative extending into Eastern Europe. Whether anyone in the U.S. picks up on it is another story. But at least you get to hear it here first.
Since MySpace pretty much dropped the ball on exposing new talent throughout the world, the cause has been picked up of late by other sites such as ReverbNation and Bandcamp. Which is a good thing as there is an incredible amount of talent all over the world to check out.
And you might want to go to those sites and hit the browse button and see what comes up. You will be surprised.
