Hi Guys,

If I remember correctly, there were only 4 episodes in this series and they were shown fairly late (around 11.30pm) on ITV. It was a damn good series that I'd forgotten all about!

thanks, marvin!
It's just that the series description says "50 years of English youth culture" which would take things up to the year 2000...

Can't wait to watch this!

You're welcome Lili.
Describing it as 50 years of English youth culture is pushing it somewhat. There may be a follow up in the pipeline, outlining the next 25 years, but I've not heard anything. It's very unusual that a documentary of this nature appears on TV in England nowadays, they used to be fairly commonplace :(

BTW You may also be interested in this book: 'The Way We Wore' by Robert Elms and published by Picador (ISBN: 0330420321).

Again you're welcome. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did! And I take it all back about the other 4 episodes. Sorry :)

I posted the article because I felt a good discussion about it was called for. As you will note at the intro, I cut out several paragraphs that I felt were over the top and not substantiated, and some images that were not originals and could not be sourced.
