1970 Facts

Many countries boycotted the contest being upset with the way the 4-way draw was handled the previous year, forcing Dutch broadcaster to pad the show out, one of the ways they did this was the creation of the postcards, these have now become an intergral part of the contest, allowing time for the stage to be reset between the acts.
