BBC Rewind: Super Tuesdays through the years

As 11 US states cast their vote for presidential nominees, BBC Rewind looks back on Super Tuesdays of the past.

The simultaneous voting across a number of states became known as Super Tuesday in 1984.

In the majority of cases, candidates who have fared well in Super Tuesdays have traditionally gone on to contest the presidential election for their party.
