Britain says "Happy Birthday" to an old director called Peter Hall and two old actors called John Bird and Tom Conti

Today, collectively representing 300 years on earth :

Peter Hall, theatre, film and opera director is 81
John Bird, actor and writer is 75
Tom Conti, actor and director is 70

They were born :
Peter, Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England

John, Bulwell, Nottingham, England

Three interesting things about their youth :

* Peter's father was a station master.
* John briefly joined the 'Socialist Party of Great Britain' when he was at school.
* Tom's father was born in Italy.
