Looks Unfamiliar 17: Jacqueline Rayner
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 Jacqueline Rayner, who wants to know if anyone else remembers ITV panto Quincy’s Quest, lurid soft drink Quosh Tropical, comedy battle game Klonks, Bernie Clifton’s character El Bandido, Pippa dolls and Honey Bear Spread. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to tell if Morecambe And Wise are coming to murder you, the best adventure Doctor Who never had, what measures to take when a runaway horse smashes into a bathroom factory, and why you should avoid German Smarties at all costs. And if you can tell us the name of Jac’s mystery scary children’s programme, or alternately who said ‘bastards’ on Radio 4, please let us know…!
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose. You can find more about long forgotten radio comedy in Fun At One – The Story Of Comedy At BBC Radio 1, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here. There’s also a huge feature on Quincy’s Quest in Tim’s new book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
