The Best of Bad TV: The 70s

The Best of Bad TV: The 70s

Series 1



A trawl through the programmes of the decade, featuring clips of car-crash interviews, terrifying children's dramas, hoaxes and baffling game shows. Limited technology and low budgets led to memorably poor special effects in sci-fi shows, soaps tried to escape the grim realities of strikes, unease and civil unrest, while there were memorable clashes between music stars and TV presenters, from David Bowie to the Sex Pistols. Contributors include Gareth Thomas, Paul Darrow, Jane Rossington, Tony Adams, Paul Henry, Peter Purves and Valerie Singleton.
