I`ve only got a patchy recollection of the 1980`s since I decided to spend much of it in an alcohol induced coma , and if you can recall the music of 1985-86-87 then you can hardly blame me . But even I can point out the amateurish factual errors this nostalgic series made
1984 for example includes a feature on " The brat pack " most especially THE BREAKFAST CLUB complete with the title song by Simple Minds . Only thing is THE BREAKFAST CLUB was released in 1985 !
Same with 1988 which was presented by the teenage mutant hero turtles who didn`t introduce Britain to turtle mania untill a year later . The programme even showed a clip of the film which didn`t get released untill 1990 ! Same with BILL AND TED`S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE which hit cinema`s in 1989 not as stated here in 1988 !
If the BBC want to employ researchers can they employ ones who are capable of doing what they`re paid to do and that is to RESEARCH something . I could have done a better job myself drunk or sober
