  1. The opening titles to this programme.


This selection is three variations on the opening titles for TVNZ's 80s rock show. The theme music is 'This Heaven' by Auckland synth pop act Marginal Era; the mid-80s can also be seen in the pink colour choice and in the nascent computer graphics. Variations among the three sequences lie in the contemporary and vintage artists chosen in the montages of video excerpts — but all are bookended by classic pop images of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

My personal favourite was the sequence that used Nina Hagen - "Hermann Hiess Er".
