The Kids From Fame Again, as discussed by Tim Worthington and Paul Kirkley in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 20: Paul Kirkley

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 Paul Kirkley, who is wondering if anyone else recalls The Kids From Fame Again, the The A-Team tie-in novels, Del Amitri the debut album by Del Amitri, David Nobbs’ Henry Pratt novels, video rental shop favourite The Beastmaster, BBC1 holiday filler The Saturday Picture Show, and TV Tops comic strip The Fantastic Adventures Of Adam Ant. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Robert Smith takes on holiday, what happens when Dick Turpin runs head first at Sapphire And Steel, and why you should never obey Musical Youth lyrics to the letter.
