Back in Time for School: The 1980s
The 1980s
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  Lifestyle Channel  |  October 10, 2019

Our pupils and teachers arrive in the 1980s. The focus of teaching is all about competition, entrepreneurialism and technology. Their first lesson embraces the technological revolution as the teacher unveils a cutting edge gadget, a 2XL robot. With the latest BBC microcomputers making their way into schools in 1982, this very 21st-century tech-addicted class try out a new math program. In 1983, with the arrival of affordable synthesisers, the class get the chance to embrace the booming synthpop industry in the UK in their music lesson. And there's a very special guest, Nik Kershaw, who listens to them playing some smash hits, before performing his own song especially for them. Inspired by their new love for synth, the kids, parents and teachers rock out to some of the most iconic tunes of the decade at their very '80s school disco. In 1985, the teachers go on strike, so the kids head to a local park where they get stuck in to a class '80s past-time, breakdancing to Run DMC.
