What year is it? Dire Straits were playing Romeo and Juliet;
Duran Duran were on Planet
Earth; Kim Carnes had Bette Davies Eyes; and the Specials lived in Ghost Town.
Ronald Reagan became the USA's 40th president; Charles and Diana got married; and there were riots in inner cities across Britain.
Following the programme's forays into the 50s, 60s and 70s, The Rock 'n' Roll Years comes up to date with a new series looking at the 80s, a year at a time, through the news and music of the era.
If you haven't guessed the year, it was 1981.

"What's extraordinary is that no one's tried this approach to current affairs before in this country, says reporter Tom Mangold. The model, if any, is the successful US programme 60 Minutes, and the format consists of three film reports per week, contributed by the team of Mangold,
Sybil Ruscoe , Sankha Guha , Lynda Bryans and Mark Easton.
But it's the BBC's correspondent in Bosnia,
Jeremy Bowen , who provides an exclusive for the first edition. He traces the inside story of what happened to the Bosnian girl Irma Hadzimuratovic , whose plight received so much publicity following Bowen's own reports and who was brought to London on John Major's instructions.
Bowen talks to Irma, to the medical team caringfor her and to her father Ramiz, whose wife was killed in the mortar explosion that crippled Irma. He also visits her grandparents.
And with the imposition of VAT on domestic fuel bills imminent, Lynda Bryans asks what can be done to combat the threat of increased charges. Series producer Steve Anderson

Tonight's programme charts the rise and fall of Ronnie and Reggie Kray, among Britain's most notorious gangsters. Using eyewitness interviewees from various killings, newly discovered film footage and previously unpublished scene-of-crime pictures, The Underworld turns the clock back to expose the Kray firm's brutal reign of terror.
Albert Donoghue, who was Reggie's right-hand man, explains how he was recruited to the firm after one of the twins shot him in the leg. After Ronnie Kray shot
George Cornell, the gang went into hiding and, according to Donoghue, "when it came on the news that he was dead a cheer went up". He describes how the twins built their empire of fear, with face slashings meted out as punishments, and tells how the Krays goaded each other on to commit murder.
