In September 1981, the magazine was given a make-over and featured a new logo. The biggest visual change was the use of cover photos rather than artwork.
However, by the end of the 80s sales of Look-In were in decline and the competition grew from other glossy teen magazines. Even the BBC launched a new rival publication entitled Fast-Forward in 1989, and this actually outsold Look-In, although even this eventually ceased in Sept 1995. A previous attempt at a kids TV mag by the BBC called Beeb (which launched in 1985) had failed miserably and lasted for a paltry 20 issues.
This issue is from October 1980 and features Cliff Richard with his new LP and a Buck Rogers in the 25th Century picture strip.
