1980s

The decade of the Rubik's Cube, shoulder pads and alternative comedy: Jo Brand takes us through some classic 80s sketches courtesy of Not The Nine O'Clock News, French & Saunders and the late, great Victoria Wood.

Further details

We hear from John Lloyd who created Spitting Image, and Janet Street-Porter, who had the honour of being immortalised in latex. We remember the artists who chimed with the 80s yuppie culture such as Harry Enfield and his catchphrase character 'Loadsamoney'.

Susie Blake shares her memories of working with Victoria Wood, while Cleo Rocas tells us of riotous times with her great friend Kenny Everett.
