The Eighties

Sundays at 8:30pm AEDT from December 3 until January 21

The world held its breath as the Cold War between two nuclear superpowers came to a near miraculous and peaceful end. But the world also learned of a mysterious virus that defied a cure and triggered a global pandemic. Wall Street brokers became the new rock stars as the stock market soared and the sluggish ’70s turned into the ‘go-go’ ’80s. The Eighties gives viewers an extraordinary insight into a decade that had a profound impact on America, taking a look at significant events and individuals such as the Cold War, AIDS crisis, Ronald Reagan and Steve Jobs, who all played a part in shaping this revolutionary decade.
