Narrated by Rob Lowe,” The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us” isn’t about nostalgia; it’s about the history of our modern world that spawned political, technological, cultural and social revolutions that began in the United States and went on to dominate the world. This cultural programming event is the defining biography of a decade, as told through exclusive interviews with more than 40 icons, entertainers and innovators who shaped its identity, including Jane Fonda, Larry Hagman, DMC, Jim Craig, Calvin Klein, David Hasselhoff, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Michael J. Fox, Nina Blackwood, Linda Evans, and more. This six part mini-series premieres at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 14, on National Geographic Channel.
