LITTLE KNOWN FACT: You know the infamous Nozin’ Aroun’ show-within-a-show from The Young Ones? With a young Ben Elton telling us how it’ll be looking at the issues facing YOUNG ADULTS in the modern crazy world of 1982?

It’s a promo video for the songs ‘Burrow and Bomb’ and ‘I Got News For You’ by California hardcore punk supergroup Off!, starring Dave Foley and lots of brilliant riffs on American television  from the early early 1980s.
