Juliet Bravo

Compared to today’s gritty, hard-hitting crime dramas Juliet Bravo seems rather tame but from 1980 to 1985 it was a frontrunner amongst police series on TV. Devised by the man behind The Sweeney, Ian Kennedy Martin, Juliet Bravo went through six series and two leading actresses, outlasting and outshining its rival, The Gentle Touch. Set […]

On Safari

Safari? So Goodie! When I was young I never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day […]

Inch High Private Eye

Inch High, Private Eye was a 1970s animated cartoon series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which was resurrected in the 1980s to delight and entertain a brand new audience. Inch High was the self-styled “world’s biggest little detective” who worked for the Finkerton Detective Agency and he was really quite tiny – about one inch high […]

Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums

I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The […]

Street Hawk

Jesse Mach was a motorcycle cop. I say was, because he had a bit of a run-in with some naughty men which resulted in his knee being busted up and his friend Marty being killed. He was destined to never ride a motorcycle again, but to be shunted into the Public Relations office where he […]

Ashens and the Polybius Heist

Remember the 80s? Of course you do! That’s why you’re here, at an 80s site! And do you remember 80s arcade machines? (That’s a rhetorical question – there is no need to keep answering out loud from now on.) If your favourite film genre is “80s retro gaming heists”, then you will certainly be adding […]

Teddy Ruxpin

Teddy Ruxpin was an animatronic teddy bear that would come to life and read you stories. Don’t get me wrong, he was no Chucky from Childs Play, no no no, he was a cute bear whose calming voice was incredibly entertaining and in no way disturbing. You inserted specific Teddy Ruxpin story cassettes into the […]

Micro But Many – A new book on Micro Machines

If you’re here, I’m guessing you know about the 80s! And I’m guessing you know about, or are at least aware of, Micro Machines. As a quick explanation for people who are just exploring the internet, have found this and would like a brief overview, Micro Machines were miniature vehicles sold in sets of 5 […]
