Every image has a story, every story has an image. Take a break with some of the most iconic ads of the 80’s, 90’s and the Nougties, and stay glued to the spot as the tales on tonight’s Gogglewatch are revealed. The piece comes complete with a host for the evening and will take you on a televisual adventure, so sit back and relax, no need for channel surfing as live dance meets the world of television.

The race is on, can the body clock be beaten and the games completed?
