14. The Gentle Touch: Blade (LWT, ITV, 9 May 1980, Series 1, Episode 5)
A convincingly functional headline from the Standard. Of interest is what the surrounding genuine headlines tell us about the preoccupations of 1980 readers; "Steelmen stay out in row over cutbacks - 'Now sort out the jobs'" tells a convoluted story, while, "Peters and Lee to split up" suggests that it was a pretty thin newsday.
