Photos of the day: The 1980s Quiz

IT’S the 1980s here at Anorak Towers, the era when Old Mr Anorak’s godson Tiny Rowland was big cheese in the Harrods food hall, Margaret Thatcher was made of iron and America was run by Ronald Reagan – it was he who gave George W. Bush his big break into showbiz. We’ve compiled a gallery of that golden era and invite you to identify all the TV shows, films, actors and players from their pictures. Can you get them all?
