Bauer Media launches TV Years: The Eighties magazine
The team behind Bauer Media’s TV Choice magazine have launched a magazine dedicated to the Eighties.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
TV Years: The Eighties will include the 50 Greatest TV Moments, revisiting old favourites including Bergerac, Howard’s Way, Grange Hill and Only Fools and Horses. It also features a definitive year-by-year and month-by-month breakdown of every important TV moment the Eighties had to offer.
Editor-in-Chief Jon Peake commented: "With nostalgia for the Eighties lasting longer than the actual decade itself, we thought the time was right for a magazine to take a trip back to the time when telly ruled – despite only having four channels to choose from. We chart television’s journey throughout a decade that gave us classics we still remember fondly, the things we’d forgotten all about and even maybe things we never knew existed – even the ads. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
TV Years: The Eighties marks the first of a series of specials from the TV Choice team, with the next issue planned for publication in November.
The magazine is now on sale, priced at £3.99, and available through all major stores or online.
