To celebrate the launch of It’s A Stampede!, every day for the next year I will be presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

April 10th – On this day in 1981, Star Wars is re-released in US cinemas for the third time, following re-releases in July 1978 and August 1979. This third re-release sees Star Wars retitled as Episode IV: A New Hope – the subtitle it will retain for all future re-releases.

More tomorrow…
