Looks Unfamiliar #47: Jim Sangster – A Horrible Bee-In-A-Jar Type Noise

The Spice Girls: Spice World for the Playstation, as discussed by Tim Worthington and writer Jim Sangster in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 47: Jim Sangster

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 Jim Sangster, who’s browsing the archive shelves for any trace of controversial BBC2 satirical drama A Small Problem, The Ballad Of Lady Di by The Hon. Nick Jones and Ian Macrae, early Channel 4 sci-fi sitcom They Came From Somewhere Else, ITV Nighttime supernatural anthology filler Worlds Beyond, The Spice Girls’ Spice World PlayStation game, and Rubovia.

Along the way we’ll be finding out whether Princess Diana preferred Breaking Glass or Lancelot Link – Secret Chimp, what Minnie Mouse did with the master tape of A Young Person’s Guide To Getting Their Ball Back, and why you should never allow The Valeyard near your family’s bookshelf.
