Google would be able to solve this but in the interests of fair play.... I've guessed at 1978

Well Tom, I used google to set the question :D

Unfortunately your guess of 1978, was incorrect, but you are only a few years out, I think you were thinking Pink Floyd and there hit, A brick in the wall which was released around the 1978/79 time

Here is another clue, The UK entered the Common Market, in this year

I haven't used google and will guess at 1974 as I seem to remember voting in a referendum in June of that year and it was snowing as I walked to the polling station.

I thought the OU would have awarded a degree earlier but it may have been that they didn't do degree courses to begin with.
