I found this old Manchester Evening News newspaper from 1982 in an old family photo chest.
What interested me were the Saturday TV and cinema listings. I was 21 at the time and living in Germany.
In Britain these were the days of just 4 TV channels and countless small town-centre cinemas.
Interestingly they included a Saturday night thriller, which I assume was a TV play, 2 horror films - Fiend Without a Face and The Strange Door, a prime-time episode of Shogun and an episode of Cannon.
TV stations also ended early in the morning for the night as signified by the word 'close'.
What else catches your eye?
The cinema listings are a revelation and reminded me just how many cinemas there were showing both popular and in some 'blue' movies.
Films being shown included Zombie Creeping Flesh, the Warriors, the Entity, American Werewolf in London and Flesh Gordon.
Interestingly The Fall were playing a gig at Manchester's Lesser free Trade Hall. The influential lead singer Mark E. Smith, hailing from Salford, has passed away this week aged just 60.
The suburban cinemas around Manchester were showing an even more eclectic mix of thrillers and sleaze with films like The Thing, Brimstone and Treacle, Poltergeist and Hot T-Shirts.
They were also showing Wolfen, one of my fave horror flicks of all time.
What would you have gone to see?
