Presenting celebrity gossip, the hippest bands and lad friendly guests, this unscripted, chaotic program briefly made Evans the most sought after man on TV … we’ve yet to see how he does on with his latest incarnation on ‘Top Gear’.
The big screen was blessed with one of the best British films, ‘Trainspotting’. Despite featuring heroin, needles, vomit and disgusting toilet bowls, this was the coolest thing of the year and took Ewan McGregor from nowhere to ‘Star Wars’.
The more family friendly film of 1996 was ‘Toy Story’; it being the first feature length movie ever to be animated entirely by computer.
