How about Two Tribes by Frankie Goes to Hollywood!
Forget that it came out in 1984 or The Young Ones was first broadcast in 1982. Worse the BBC film Threads was shown in 1984. This was badly researched drivel. If they wanted to discuss nuclear annihilation then wait until 1984.
If you want to discuss a disaster, there was the royal wedding between Charles and Diana. A not so fairy tale wedding.
Adam Ant presented a look back on what was supposed to be events of 1981. At least it was his year with the teeny boppers. Adam and the Ants got their 15 minutes of fame.
It was also the year of New Romantic bands like Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet. It was a shame Lufthansa Airport never made it big in the pop charts. For people who were missing Showaddywaddy, there was Shakin Stevens hiding behind the Green Door.
For teenage boys, there was Kim Wilde with Kids in America and Claire Grogan who was in in Gregory's Girl and also in the pop charts.
It was not a very interesting look at 1981. I could not get too enthusiastic about the darts segment.
It was also the year of the inner city riots in the summer of 1981 but the show decided to go all nuclear instead.
