Looks Unfamiliar 26: Martin Belam
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 journalist Martin Belam, who’s searching hard for historical evidence of the Laurel And Hardy cartoon, Faith No More being censored by Top Of The Pops, a scene that may or may not have gone missing since the original cinema release of Flash Gordon, a space shuttle touring air shows, a radio documentary on the making of Dr. Mabuse by Propaganda, and when New Order couldn’t work out how to play Your Silent Face live. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to be mistaken for a monarchist by watching the Red Arrows, why Nik Kershaw asked his fans to come and have a go if they thought they were hard enough, and why the science in Iron Man 2 was ‘wrong’.
Looks Unfamiliar is hosted by Podnose. If you’re looking for more crazy tales of alternate versions of weird and wonderful movies (though mainly just weird), you’ll find plenty of them in my new book Can’t Help Thinking About Me.
