Back to Christmas 1982 (6th January 1983)

It’s time for the first TOTP of the new year. Tonight’s show offers a pretty decent line-up with Joe Jackson (Stepping Out), Ultravox (Hymn), Wah! (The Story of the Blues) and The Stranglers (European Female) all standing out.

There’s not a great deal more on BBC1 or BBC2 that’s appealing (or accessible) but I might put The Land That Time Forgot on my virtual VHS for later.

Like BBC1, ITV is filling out their early evening schedule with a movie (but Superman is a slightly higher budget effort than The Land That Time Forgot …).

C4 offers Treasure Hunt (stop the clock!) and the first episode of The Irish R.M, starring Peter Bowles.

  1. There was a feature on The Land That Time Forgot in the 1975 Monster Fun Holiday Special. I don’t know if you have that in your collection, but it would be more appropriate for Cult Movies Musings.

  2. Blue Peter would always be worth a gander in that era.As you say if it was available as not many 80’s editions are frankly.
