The summer of 1983 saw a heatwave hit London. In September, the Docklands redevelopment in east London began with the opening of an Enterprise Zone on the Isle of Dogs.
1983 was the year CDs first went on sale in record shops. It was also the year a "white girl in her early twenties, known simply as Madonna" (from the
Guardian), appeared at the Camden Palace; in the same year David Bowie undertook his longest, largest, and most successful concert tour, the Serious Moonlight Tour.
