Looks Unfamiliar #50: Tim Worthington – That Perfect Collision Of Time, Place And Loud Ties

The Young Poisoner's Handbook (1995) as discussed by Tim Worthington and Garreth F. Hirons in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 50: Tim Worthington

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 time Tim’s the guest, talking to Garreth F. Hirons about Children’s BBC show Stop-Go!, It’s A Shame by Kris Kross, the animated series of Spider-Woman, I Wanted To See You To See If I Wanted You by Moose, The ITV Encyclopedia Of Adventure, the original version of Right Here by SWV, The Young Poisoner’s Handbook and Radio Tip Top. Along the way we’ll be finding out how the cast of The Sullivans got caught up in a South-East turf war, attempting to define the Drop The Dead Donkey Font, puzzling over how Dracula can logistically get ‘revenge’, and querying how far Roger Lloyd Pack was from any falling-through-bar incident at any given point in time.
