The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar #5: They’re Not Goosestepping Down The Street Shouting Heil The Kandyman

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 twenty five to thirty, featuring Martin Belam on the Laurel And Hardy cartoon, Jenny Morrill on The Just Seventeen Yearbook, Jack Kibble-White on Don’t Give Up Your Day Job by Richard Digance, Tim Worthington on Secrets From The School Underground, Ben Baker on Looks Familiar, John Rain on Hello Mum and Phil Norman on The Country Life Christmas Box. Along the way we’ll be getting annoyed at a fictional schoolboy’s opinions on Monty Python’s Flying Circus, critically evaluating Richard Murdoch’s cameo in The Wire, and trying our hardest to avoid talking about a cannibalistic emulsified cross between Last Tango In Paris and Straw Dogs. Plus there’s also something you may not have heard before – Tim talking to Emma Burnell and Steve Fielding on The Zeitgeist Tapes about Doctor Who and politics…
