I Love 1991
Sergeant Vic Reeves and Corporal Bob Mortimer guide viewers through the definitive pop history of 1991, a year in which the zany comic duo had a Big Night Out and a chart hit with Dizzy. Right Said Fred were Too Sexy and the guys from Nirvana introduced us to grunge. Sonic the Hedgehog competed with Super Mario on the little screen while The Commitments demonstrated that the Irish really have got soul.
Meanwhile, the muscle-bound Chippendales and The Lover's Guide videos kept everyone amused.
