The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar #2: He’s Not On A Quest To Find Out, He’s Just On A Quest To Get Out

The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar with Tim Worthington.

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.

This is a collection of highlights from shows seven to twelve, featuring Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge on the Jaws board game, Ben Baker on Mysteries Of Old Peking, Martin Ruddock on Doomlord, Steve O’Brien on High Time and Ice Cold Cube by The Stone Roses, Jem Roberts on an advert reuniting Neil and Vyvyan from The Young Ones, and Mark Griffiths on The Bloke Who Pulled His Pants Down On Kilroy. Along the way we’ll be finding out why nothing is scarier than a playing field in Slough, how to spot Simon Bates in disguise via a series of cryptic clues, and what musical genres ‘The Youngs Ones’ were followers of. Plus there’s also something you may not have heard – Tim on the radio talking to Mark Thompson about the 2009 revival of The Prisoner, which – perhaps unsurprisingly (and deservedly) – everyone seems to have forgotten about…
