Alan Davies' Teenage Revolution 2/3

9:00pm Thursday, September 16 on C4

Alan flees the suburbs and discovers a host of political causes to die for – or at least wear the badge for. By the mid-1980s, Thatcher’s Britain was bitterly divided by political debate, and Alan was in the thick of it. He revisits the 80s counterculture of his youth – from animal rights and gay rights to Ban the Bomb and Coal not Dole – and he comes face-to-face with one of the arch-bogeymen of the Left – Norman Tebbitt. Alan also meets some of the personal heroes who for him defined the political battles of the era, including folk-punk singer Billy Bragg and gay rights activist Sir Ian McKellen.
