Anniversaries And Memories

The 40th anniversary of my grandmother's passing is later this week.

This milestone, if you can call it that, led me to think about some things from around that time. One of the most common memories I have from that time is something I've written about in the past.

It was around that time when I found myself spending an afternoon watching a film that has haunted me ever since.

I'm, of course, referring to Dirkie or Lost in the Desert.

I wrote about rewatching the movie about a young boy and his dog who are lost in South Africa's Kalahari Desert a few years ago. I managed to record it when it was on TV last Christmas.

Knowing that this is the week of the anniversary, it means that the commemoration of the first time I watched Dirkie surely has to be coming up.

I have searched 'Dirkie' and 'Lost in the Desert' in an archive of TV listings, but it didn't return any results. However, there was a result from another search I did which made me go 'wow' this morning.

After typing the two films titles into Google, I came across its release date.

It came out in 1969. Okay? Well, what if I told you it came out on this day in 1969!?
