John Byrne's Tutti Frutti was the biggest hit of the 1980s and launched the careers of Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson and Richard Wilson. BBC Scotland opened its subtitling unit, The Boy David, part of The Visit, won a New York Film and Television Festival Award and we broadcast for five months from the Glasgow Garden Festival site in 1988.
