Rose-coloured glasses time, people...
19 March 2003 | by Victor FieldSee all my reviews

"I Love 1970's" was a successful journey down memory lane for many BBC2 viewers, which was in no way a comprehensive history lesson of the time (the 1972 Munich Olympics tragedy had no place here), but it didn't pretend to be.

Each episode looked at some of the trends, people and pop-culture highs and lows of each year of the decade (one year per episode), with period-specific hosts (Jimmy Savile, David Cassidy, Dennis Waterman, Lynda Carter, Roobarb and Custard etc), plenty of footage of the time - complete with ads ("For mash get Smash") - and guests and talking heads a go go. This was, it has to be said, the low point of the series; in all too many cases the same people kept turning up (who is Gina Yashere anyway, and why did she pop up throughout the series?) - hearing Kenneth Johnson talk about "The Incredible Hulk" is far more interesting than hearing Zoe Ball on the same subject, for the simple reason that he actually ran the show and she didn't. (Although the inclusion of Joseph Harnell's piano music from the end of each episode - plus the Universal TV music - was lovely.)

Otherwise, cheap television at its best. Followed by "I Love 1980s."
