Peter  Sarstedt, briefly billed early in his career as Peter Lincoln, was an English singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. He was the brother of musicians Eden Kane and Clive Sarstedt.
Although his music was classified as pop, it generally encompassed ballads derived from traditional folk music rather than traditional rock and roll. He was best known for writing and performing the song "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", which topped the UK Singles Chart in 1969. Set to a "faux European waltz tune" and described as "a romantic novel in song", it won an Ivor Novello Award. The record remained Sarstedt's biggest hit. He had 1 more hit single and 1 hit album but despite numerous releases never had chart success again. 
He died on this day aged 75 in 2017. 
The Ministry of Food introduced food rationing in the UK, to ensure there was enough food to go round during the Second World War. Britain was particularly vulnerable to a naval blockade as it imported 20 million tons of food per year on 8 January 1940.
TV series "All Creatures Great and Small" debuts on BBC TV, based on the books by James Herriot, starring Robert hardy and Christopher Timothy in 1978.
The first episode of Gimme Gimme Gimme broadcast on BBC2. It ran for 3 series and starred Kathy Burke and James Dreyfus in 1999.

The deaths were 313 today :(
