This Is England '90 - Shane Meadows
This Is England '90 - Shane Meadows. Great news...Shane Meadows ‘This Is England’ series is returning in September on Channel 4 (in the UK), with 'This Is England ’90’.
The same set of characters (Shaun, Woody, Lol, Smell etc.) will be there, now set in 1990. The original series was set in 1983, then there were series set in 1986 and 1988. This period was one of the most tumultuous times in recent British history, seeing the rise of Thatcherism and the peak of Britain’s industrial decline.
Britain's youth cultures were in decline through the 1980’s: by 1983 Punk and the Mod revival were in the past, New Romantic’s and electronic music were dominant and by the late 1980’s dance music and the rave/club scene were the new thing. It will be fascinating to see this recreated here.
I can’t wait for this new series!
