The 1980’s Project

The 1980’s Project is based on my collection of news items and other articles of interest pasted into twelve scrapbooks during the years 1979 – 1981.


Each year has its own page which features a report or survey of British attitudes for that year. This is supplemented by best selling lists for films, singles and albums. You will also find a sample of some famous people who died in that year.

Many of the articles and books found on this site were inspired by these newspaper clippings. They each have their own page on this site.
