WHERE DID THOSE 20 YEARS GO, BEGBIE?

AS TRAINSPOT­TING SE­QUEL TRAILER IS RE­LEASED, WE LOOK 1996 2016 1996 2016 1996 2016

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

IT has been two decades since cult hit

burst onto the scene and changed the face of the Brit film in­dus­try.

The world is a dif­fer­ent place these days than it was back in 1996, when heroin ad­dicts Ren­ton, Spud and Sick Boy made their de­but in Danny Boyle’s drug-ad­dled flick.

The full-length trailer for the long-awaited se­quel – based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno – was re­leased last week and showed the gang slip­ping back into their old ways.

Af­ter leav­ing Ed­in­burgh for London at the end of the first film, the trailer showed Ren­ton (played by Ewan McGregor) mak­ing his re­turn to the Scot­tish cap­i­tal and re­u­nit­ing with the gang.

So as the lads get set to make their re­turn when T2 is re­leased in Jan­uary, we take a look back at what life was like in the days when John Ma­jor was still PM.

The charts these days are filled with in­fec­tious songs from baby-faced pop­stars such as Justin Bieber and One Di­rec­tion, but back in the mid 90s Brit­pop was at its peak thanks to the likes of Oasis and Blur.

And gone are the days when the pages of the Mid­week Sport were filled with the perky nat­u­ral norks of glam le­gends Jo Guest and Karen Bag­goley.

So sit back and re­lax as we take you on a trip down mem­ory lane. CULT CLAS­SIC: Ewan McGregor in the first flick
