Looks Unfamiliar #33: Emma Burnell – They’re Only Eating Macaroni

The Royal Potwasher, as discussed by Tim Worthington and journalist Emma Burnell in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 33: Emma Burnell

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 Emma Burnell, who’s going to the polls with her hazy memories of The Royal Potwasher, Melody Radio, Channel 4’s presentation of Accidental Death Of An Anarchist, A Woman In Her Own Right by Anne Dixon, The Lords Of Midnight and Herman’s Head. Along the way we’ll be finding out what happens when you continually ask a radio station that doesn’t have Ghostbusters to play Ghostbusters, what BBC Test Card F has to tell us about Second Wave Feminism, what Channel 4’s ‘Red Triangle’ meant to adolescent boys and girls respectively, and why we’re all sick of the sight of The Utarg Of Utarg.
