You know you're a child of the 80's when you go see a movie about a 12 or 13 year old kid from 1988 that wakes up in 2004 called Thirteen going on 30, and then sadly realize that it's about someone around YOUR age.

Everyone born in the 1970's, either already has, or will turn 30 sometime in this decade.  Suddenly that show from the 80's that was about "the old people"  called Thirty-Something, doesn't look all that confusing.

I would know I was a child of the early early 80s, (I was a little bit punk then) if:  when I heard disco music on a boom-box, i would smash the box into pieces, jump up and down on it until exhausted, then politely apologize to the stunned disco people telling them, "Sorry, that music kind of sets me off   ::).

Wow! There's a lot to explain to the people outside Britain. I try my best . . .

Jim'll Fixit was a program hosted by ex-disk jockey Jimmy Saville. Children would write in requesting to do things they wished of like meeting pop bands, eating burgers and drinking milkshakes on rollercoasters (yep, it happened) and flying planes and stuff. Once the child got his wish, he received a special 'Jim Fixed it for me' medal. Was axed around 88/89 - A bit of a shame really.

Wac-a-day was a holiday morning show (featured Monday to Friday) introduced by a maniac called Timmy Mallet. He would show lots of stuff, featuring his take on the world - like Russia and Germany (esp. when the Berlin Wall was destroyed). His main party piece was a game called Mallet's Mallet where you had to say words that associated with each other in quick time or else he would smack you over the head with a big spongey mallet. The winner received a prize and a loser recieved a Wac-Plaster (A plaster with 'WAC' written on it). Amongst his other eccentricities, Mallet would wear Dame Edna style glasses and would roll the right knee of his Bermuda shorts up. It was entertaining and has a cult following where he goes around Universities now, still bashing people over the head with a stuffed mallet.

The Now compilations (Now that's what I call music to give it's full title) with the pig on the cover was the brainchild of Virgin Music and featured hits of the time. The Pig featured from 1 - 6 I think. The institution has been around since 1983 and is now on it's 57th music CD!

PJ and Duncan were stars of a kids show called Byker Grove, set in Newcastle and was about a youth club that was always threatened of closure. They became pop stars in the mid 90s and are now famous British TV hosts.

The brothers Matt and Luke Goss were part of the band Bros. They were major teen-idols back in the late 80s, very early 90s. Sort of lost their influence after 1991. One of the brothers appeared in Blade 2.

The 'Turn off your TV set and do something less boring instead' slogan was paying homage to the kids show 'Why Don't You?' It was a kind of activity show that was pretty awful - It did encourage me to do something less boring. I changed the channel.  ;D

'Ooh you could crush a grape' was a phrase often used by Liverpudlian, track-suit wearing Stu Francis, host of kids shows Crackerjack (a gungy game show) and 'Crush a grape'.

Going Live was a Saturday morning kids show featuring Phillip Scofield and Sarah Greene. They did lots of activities and phone-ins while introducing cartoons (The Racoons was one of them!). They were often joined by Emma Forbes (in the cookery corner) and the two very underated comedians called Trevor and Simon - They were very funny. 'Swing your pants'!

You've ever had a discussion on who the cooler Duke boys were.

You've ever wanted to weld the car doors shut

"General Lee" brings to mind a car, and not a person.

The other "big" wedding of the decade was Charles and Di
