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 Jack Kibble-White, who’s revving up the trademark TV Cream Lazy Uncritical Nostalgia engine for a look at Don’t Give Up Your Day Job by Richard Digance, Sky One’s Games World, United Kingdom: Working For The Enemy, comics fanzine Arken Sword, Children’s ITV filler Who’s Next, and the Compose A New Theme Tune For This Morning competition. Along the way we’ll be finding out why there are no jesters in Star Wars, which videos Morrissey sneakily rented from the top shelf, what would have happened in the tragically uncommissioned series Definitely Madeley, and why an interview with Pat Mills is more exciting than a night on the town with Angelina Jolie. Plus there’s a bit of chat about a theatre troupe who came to Jack’s school and stole some cheese…
