Season 1 Episode 1 (of 3)

The pace of modern life, with entertainment and technological advances so rapid, leaves the marvels and wonders of just a few short years ago looking and feeling terribly dated.

That’s So Last Century invites celebrities to take a warm and funny walk down memory lane, to re-acquaint themselves with the gadgets, games and gizmos of their childhood and gifts from Christmas past, and see how well they’ve stood the test of time.

People taking part include Vic Reeves, Dom Joly and Will Mellor – who turn the tables on their kids to see if they can get to grips with some old-school contraptions. Will modern children manage a selfie on an old fashioned 35mm camera? How do they cope with lo-fi video games and working a TV with no remote? And how will they react to a mobile phone that looks and weighs the same as a brick?

In this first episode, James Corden, Jimmy Carr, Vic Reeves and family revisit massive mobiles, VHS players, Walkmans and the Spectrum computer.
