Our sources

From the Eighties gets its information from lots of sources. Initially much of it comes from people like you. But, except for the glaringly obvious 80s suggestions (like Transformers or Alf), we have to verify this information. We search books and web sites to check and double check our information. However, the info we provide is only as accurate as the sources we check. We are confident that our data is close to perfect, but with over 3,000 references, 99% accuracy still means over 30 errors.

Nevertheless, we share a partial list of sources that we sometimes rely on:

  • IMDB
  • Wikipedia
  • Yesterdayland
  • Epguides.com
  • "The Timetables of History" by Bernard Grun, 1991
  • Allmusic.com
  • official music group web sites
  • unofficial fan sites (though we always re-verify at another site)
