Great British Film - Meet Gordon Warnecke who played OMAR in My Beautiful Laundrette

We're celebrating a British film classic from the 1980s - the ground-breaking My Beautiful Laundrette which tackled racism, sexuality and a variety of social, economic and political issues facing Britain at the time. Multi Oscar winning actor Daniel Day Lewis and Gordon Warnecke were the joint leads in the film. Daniel played gay punk Johnny and Gordon was his asian boyfriend Omar. 35 years on, Gordon has been reminiscing about his part in a film which at the time broke loads of taboos and is listed as one of the greatest British films of all time.

The Distinct Nostalgia theme is owned by MIM Productions and composed by Rebecca Applin and Chris Warner. 

From now onwards you can enjoy 4 NEW Distinct Nostalgia shows every single week ...

Tuesday is specials day and for the next few weeks it's the home of Kelly's Heroes with Queer as Folk star Craig Kelly.

Thursday is now Distinct Nostalgia soap day. Loads of retro soap chat with the actual stars who were there ... 

The regular Distinct Nostalgia programme moves to Saturdays with a variety of shows celebrating all our tv and film yesterdays.

And then we’ve the Distinct Nostalgia Mind of the Month Quiz with Andy Hoyle on Sundays.
