April Fool’s Day - Spaghetti tree hoax (video)

One of the most famous April Fools’ Day hoaxes was a BBC television programme in 1957 about ‘spaghetti trees’ in Switzerland. In the 1950s, most British people weren’t familiar with ‘foreign’ food such as pasta, so the programme made thousands of people think that spaghetti really did grow on trees.
