The 5 at 5 Relive the decade that gave us the Nintendo 64.

THE 1990s WERE memorable for many things including Italia 90, Riverdance, Girl Power and Boyzone’s topless shenanigans on The Late Late.

The decade also gave us some memorable cars too that – unlike Boyzone – focused on design and performance.
