When did I start watching F1?

We - NZ - got Monaco on a delayed broadcast in 1982. That was a race that was as dull as hell for 98% of it but the last 2% was fantastic.
And yes, fuel shortages did occur.
The F1 economy runs were 1984/85ish.
I really can't recall much of that being on TV.
In 1989 we started getting edited highlights on the Monday night after a GP and then Sky arrived , in Auckland only at first, in 1990 - France/Capelli/Leyton Houses/bugger

That sounds suspiciously like it. Thanks!
