The 80s with Dominic Sandbrook
Season 1 Episode 3 of 3
World in Motion The historian concludes his review by looking at the last few years of the decade and a society transformed by accelerated change. Not only did the late 1980s see the rise of the yuppie and the economic big bang in the City of London, but shopping habits changed with the growing popularity of German cars, French wine, Italian fashion and Scandinavian interior design. Alongside this transformation was a growing disconnection from the political elite, signified by the growing rave culture and the community charge riots. For Margaret Thatcher, widely seen as the architect of much of this change, things would not end well. Last in the series
