The Robshaws are transported back to the space-age 1960s, with their home having a fitted kitchen installed and a host of new tastes and flavours to be sampled. Giles Coren and Polly Russell introduce them to the culinary treats of the decade, including spaghetti bolognese and TV dinners, while Hairy Biker Dave Myers delivers their long-awaited fridge and reveals the transformative effect the appliance had on his own childhood.
Repossession agents Mike Allonby and Terry Jones travel to Cheshire to collect a car from a woman who owes several hundred pounds on a loan, then they head to Liverpool to recover a Jaguar X-Type.

The red-headed darling of Hill 16 throughout the 80s, Barney Rock captured Dublin hearts with his place kicking and match-winning scores, like his famous opportunistic goal against Galway in the 1983 All-Ireland Final ensuring victory for a 12 man Dublin.
