Bauer Media to launch new mag, TV Years: the Eighties

The team behind Bauer’s weekly TV listing title TV Choice magazine are to launch a brand new magazine dedicated to the 80s.

TV Years: The Eighties will include the 50 Greatest TV Moments, revisiting old favourites like Bergerac, Howard’s Way and Grange Hill among many other 80s TV related features. Also, the magazine will include a definitive year-by-year and month-by-month of every important TV moment the 80s had to offer.

Editor-in-Chief, Jon Peake commented: "With nostalgia for the Eighties lasting longer than the actual decade itself, we thought the time was right for a magazine to take a trip back to the time when telly ruled – despite only having four channels to choose from. We chart television’s journey throughout a decade that gave us classics we still remember fondly, the things we’d forgotten all about and even maybe things we never knew existed – even the ads. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it.” 

TV Years: The Eighties marks the first of a series of specials from the TV Choice team, with the next planned for publication in November.

The magazine will beon sale from Tuesday 11 September, priced at £3.99 (USD$5.16). 

Bauer Media is a member of FIPP.
