Do we know if there will be any future episodes to take us beyond 1976? I thought the first four were very cool.

The end of Pt 4 says, “to be continued”. Here is a statement from the creator, looks like early April:
“Hi, yes I’m working on part 5 at the moment. Hoping to have it out by Tuesday or Wednesday this coming week. That’ll be the end of this initial run covering the early years, but I’m intending to do more after a short break.”
