Looks Unfamiliar 11 – Lisa Parker And Andrew Trowbridge
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to. Joining Tim this time are Round The Archives hosts Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, who relate their not especially shared memories of Big John Little John, Virtual Murder, Matchbox Cascade, the Bobby Brewster books, Enid Blyton’s Mr. Pink Whistle, and the Jaws board game. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to re-enact Total Wipeout in the comfort of your own home, how many voices ‘Radio’s Man Of A Thousand Voices’ really had, and why The Clown from Camberwick Green could never qualify as a master of disguise.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose.
There’s more about Virtual Murder – and many other similarly unsuccessful attempts by the BBC and ITV at making hit ‘genre’ shows while Doctor Who was off the air – in Tim’s book Well At Least It’s Free, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
You can find Lisa and Andrew’s podcast, Round The Archives, here, and follow them on Twitter at @lisacartman. You can hear Tim appearing on Round The Archives to talk about the last episode of Chigley here, and another appearance talking about his book about comedy on BBC Radio 3 The Larks Ascending here.
Lisa and Andrew also appear in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Ben Baker, Steve O’Brien, Martin Ruddock, Mark Griffiths and Jem Roberts, which you can find here.
