Greetings humble web surfer and a very warm welcome to my all-singin', all dancin' micro-site, suitably titled 'A Blast from the Past'.  Here we celebrate all the good retro stuff from the 80's, preserved on these very pages for your enjoyment.  Time has stood still and you'll find a fun and vibrant theme on every page.

Don't you ever find that your fondest memories come from your childhood?  I certainly do and that's what inspired me to design this microsite.  To start with I am going to explore 80's Children's TV shows, from Rainbow to Fraggle Rock - all your old favourites are right here!  When I researched the material for this microsite I was flooded with loads of happy retro memories that had been hiding in the back of my mind and had now leaped forward to make their second debut.

The shows featured on this page are just a small selection of my personal favourites.  More will be added in due course and I'm giving you the opportunity to influence which shows you want to see featured.  Simply leave your comments in my online forum, located in the Interactive Zone and I'll do my best to feature it.

Here on the BFP pages I give you a 100% cheese guarantee; I'll provide you with the most colourful and exciting webpages dedicated to the 80's.  I'll give you a full, compact synopsis of each show containing all the 'buzz' words to jog your memory of the show. I'll include all my favourite bits, screen clips, theme tunes and sound effects.  I'll also provide you with amazing facts you never knew about the shows, of which there are plenty!

So come on folks, re-live your childhood right here right now.  Take that long overdue stroll down Memory Lane and find yourself lost in a world of happy memories.  If you were an 80's child like me then this is your wake up call.  So make sure your speakers are turned on nice and loud, and prepare yourself for a Blast from the Past - let the good times roll..

A Blast from the Past


I originally acquired the idea to design a retro website back in 2004, but it has taken 4 years to develop the concept into the site it is today.  The main problem was due to space constraints - I wanted to feature loads of 80's shows with their theme tunes and my old website simply didn't have the space.  Several test/pilot pages were created including 'Mickey's Retro World', but none of them made it onto the website main-frame as I wasn't happy with the presentation or content.  When I purchased my new website (MFW Beta) in 2007 I acquired loads of extra space, more than enough to accomodate my new micro-site!  You are now viewing the conclusion to my original idea all those years ago!  Project BFP is all about remembering the good times and feeling good about life - if you feel both of these things then I've achieved my objectives.
