Synopsis

1980s by Sally Hewitt

In 'I can remember' our recent history (i.e. World War II onwards) is brought alive through real life experiences and memories of everyday life and a wealth of memorabilia, ephemera and archive photography. Each book is broken up into thematic spreads: school, at home, work, entertainment etc and different voices recall their experiences related to them. There is not one single voice through the book but a variety, so there are is a range of views and a mixture of ages. The back of the books includes a timeline and glossary. In 'I can remember the 1980s' topics include popular television and films, Live Aid, Hillsborough, the Falklands war, pop music, fashion, the miners' strike, yuppies, Margaret Thatcher, personal computers and mobile phones.
