80's Television Quiz

The 80's, a time that brought us good television, and some pure cheese. Stuff wasn't as violent was it is now, and the closest thing to reality TV was the news!

This is a little selection of questions from the 80's TV knowledge stored in my head. See if you can match wits with me. Using Google to research answers is considered cheating, so play nicely!
