    Local hero

    There were a few really fun Scottish films in the 1980s. Gregory's girl, Restless natives and this one - Local hero. They were all pretty quirky and they all had a pretty offbeat sense of humour going on. Sadly... there aren't a huge number of them. So you just have to make...

    The masochist, the sadist, the chauvinist and the feminist

    We had some classic beer adverts in the '80s. These Tennents lager ones were among my favourites.
