It Was Alright in the…

With jaw-dropping clips and a range of bemused and amused reactions, we visit the television of the past, from the 60s through to the 90s. Packed with the sort of shows which were beamed into our living rooms and went out totally unremarked at the time, these programmes would cause an immediate “Twitter storm” today; does what we watched then tell us about who we were?

A counterintuitive, fresh take on archive list shows, breathing in new depth and meaning by reminding us all how deeply sexist the decade was. Well cast with strong talking heads, brilliant archive. Admirable, intelligent and very watchable.
