The 1970s? No, Not Really
30 June 2006 | by wenapSee all my reviews

"I Love the 1970s" was a show which sought to create the kind of nostalgia about the 1970s which we all enjoyed about the 1950s in the 70s. It failed.

The main problem for fans of the show is people who remember the era without rosy coloured specs and those with access to newspaper archives. Flared trousers, Lava Lamps, space hoppers and Afghan coats were all selling like hot cakes in the late 1960s, and the personal stereo and many other featured items were not available until the 1980s.

And then there were mistakes in years within the decade. For instance, Punk took flight commercially at the end of 1976. It was more a trend of 1977, but "I Love 1976" presented Punk as the trend of the year.

The most ridiculous thing was that the show left out details of the recession and just what a slog life could be for adults in the 70s. They were hard times for many. But (mainly as perceived in retrospect) social conditions of the 1980s were much commented upon in the "I Love 1980s" series.

I lived through the 1970s and did not recognise a great deal of what was presented as "70s" in these shows. I would not recommend them for serious 70's historians.
