Chil­dren in Need Rocks the 80s 8.30pm, BBC One

The Guardian - The Guide - - Television -

The 1980s re­vival cir­cuit has for a decade or so op­er­ated as a kitsch but sur­pris­ingly lu­cra­tive ad­junct to main­stream pop. The cir­cuit gains ad­di­tional le­git­i­macy with this back- and front-of-stage look at A-ha and Bana­narama’s re­cent fundraiser for Chil­dren in Need. Fearne Cot­ton and Sara Cox host, while Ro­man Kemp – though 24, in some ways a child of the 80s – prowls back­stage for can­did chat. Boy Ge­orge does Pur­ple Rain, too! JR
