This section is all about having a bit of fun and enjoying the entertainment that the late 20th century had on offer. I am going to go year by year and take a look at what there was to watch, listen to, play, read and so on. I had to choose a year to start from, and I went for 1970.
Why 1970? Well it seems like a good start to the ‘modern’ era of entertainment. In my eyes at least, pre 1970 is ‘classic’ but after is not. A film in the early 1970s, barring the costumes and hairstyles, could have been a film of the 1980s or 1990s. Go back to the 1950s or 1960s and that just isn’t the case. Also, I fancied playing some classic computer games, and the 1970s was the proper start of computer gaming.
If you are thinking of missing out by only starting in 1970, then don’t worry I may go back to the 1960s and 1950s at some point. For now though, sit back and enjoy the 1970s…
