The first thing that hits you about 1980 ala UFO is the fashions.  It was a world where the suit and tie had given way to turtle necks and Nehru jackets; a world where perfectly respectable middle-aged bureaucrats were willing to run about in jump suits and where proper duty dress for military women was a skin-tight cat suit with white vinyl calf boots and hip-hugging plastic belts

Of course, there was some logic to the fashions of 1980.  Presumably if you dressed like a total git no one would notice the appalling office decor.  I do love Commander Straker's office, though.  It was filled with all sorts of toys and bizarre objects de art-- not to mention the automated bar that you can see in the corner.   UFO made it quite clear that in the future you could still smoke and drink on the job.

Ah, a more civilised age!

And let us not forget the purple-wigged ladies who manned the Shado Moonbase and did so much for many a lad's nascent adolescence.  Uniforms that appeared to be a combination of body stocking and high-tech dominatrix lingerie; my complements to the quartermaster!
