New Sounds, New Styles

As the BBC's My Generation series turns its attention to the 80s, another chance to hear Martin Fry present a seven-part series looking back at the New Romantic era. Tonight he asks why, while Britain was in the grip of Thatcherism and recession, the New Romantics closed their eyes and partied. Featuring music from Gary Numan, Spandau Ballet, Kraftwerk, Duran Duran, Ultravox and the Human League.
