Alan Davies' Teenage Revolution 1/3

9:00pm Thursday, September 9 on C4

Actor and comedian Alan Davies grew up in the 1980s, an era when it seemed everything from race relations to sexual politics, jobs and the economy was going through a revolution. And it was the conflicts of that decade that helped shape Alan, and shaped the Britain we live in today. Packed with archive footage and home videos, this three-part series offers Alan’s very personal history of the 1980s. In the first film – The Rebel from Suburbia – Alan returns to his Essex roots to rediscover his rebellious schoolboy years.
