Looks Unfamiliar #16: Will Maclean – Barnaby’s Apocalypse

Once Upon A Time... Man (FR3, 1978), as discussed by Tim Worthington and writer Will Maclean in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 16 – Will Maclean

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 is writer Will Maclean, who’s hoping that someone out there shares his hazy recollections of educational historical cartoon Once Upon A Time… Man, educational storybook In The Sofa, educational short film Powers Of Ten, sci-fi comedy animation Galaxy High, dangerous dance craze ‘The Snake’, and the episode of The Sooty Show where Sweep’s brain was surgically enlarged. Along the way we’ll be finding out who lived at 9 The Road (Great Britain, The Solar System), questioning the best course of treatment for an incapacitated Emu, and pondering on what happened when the Play School toys ran amok off-camera.
