An Alternative Account of 1981 A land invasion at dawn in Central America ... an unmarried man has a vasectomy in Asia ... a paramedic with three weeks' training saves a baby's life in the barren hills of the Yemen ... an unemployed youth stands trial in Dar es Salaam ... and middle-aged Norwegians chain themselves to bulldozers inside the Arctic Circle. Told by those who lived through them, they are stories which unfolded gradually throughout the year - so they never made the nightly news. But the changes they are part of will affect the lives of millions of people. And together they add up to a different record of what happened to the human family in 1981.
