This week in history: November 13th - November 19thby

History can teach us a lot of things – and the best way to learn from it is to really immerse yourself in some of its most interesting events! That’s why we first set up our One News Page time machine – as we take a weekly look back at some of the most intriguing and epoch-making events in history. Get ready to see what occurred this week back in years and centuries past!

November 13th, 1789 – The Origin of Franklin’s Famous Words
“Nothing is certain but death and taxes” – it’s a phrase that is oft-misquoted or mis-phrased, but it originated in some form from the writings of Benjamin Franklin, all the way back in 1789.

November 14th, 1922 – BBC Radio is Born
BBC’s radio service is one of the most celebrated in the world – and it continues to offer a fantastic selection of programmes and playlists online as well as in our cars and showers. Its domestic radio constitution celebrates its 95th birthday this week.

November 15th, 2013 – Playstation 4 Launched
One of the most-celebrated consoles in Sony’s history celebrates its fourth birthday this week – still holding up in a changing gaming climate by adding services on such as VR in recent months.

November 16th, 2015 – Largest-Ever Diamond Found
How much would you pay to put this on your finger? Two years ago, explorers in Karowe, Botswana, found a 1,111 carat diamond nestled deep in a mine – breaking history and hopefully leaving no shards in the process!

November 17th, 1933 – ‘Duck Soup’ Released
One of the most important comedy movies of all time – and one of the Marx Brothers’ most famous – saw release 84 years ago this week.

November 18th, 1902 – Birth of the Teddy Bear
We’ve all had a teddy bear – right? It was 115 years ago this week that they first received their popular moniker on behalf of toy creator Morris Michton – named for legendary US President Theodore ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt.

November 19th, 1895 – Birth of the Pencil
Without it, I certainly wouldn’t be writing this for you – and the humble pencil, first patented by Frederick Blaisdell, celebrates its 122ndbirthday this week – and you can bet it didn’t take people long to start developing those annoying chewing habits!

Join us again this time next week for more historical journeying – who knows what will pop up down the avenues of time the next time we set off?
