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 forty three to forty eight, featuring Paul Abbott on The Compleat Beatles, Anna Cale on Wendy Cracked A Walnut, Jim Sangster on The Ballad Of Lady Di by The Hon. Nick Jones and Ian Macrae, Melanie Williams on Rimmel Coffee Shimmer, Pete Prodge on The Evil Horde, Chris Hughes on The British Banknote Keyring, and Tim Worthington, Vikki Gregorich, Garreth Hirons and Jeff Lewis playing the Telly Addicts DVD game. Along the way we’ll be finding out whether Princess Diana preferred Breaking Glass or Lancelot Link – Secret Chimp, debating the correct spelling of ‘Compleat’, and revealing what capital you’ll require to establish your very own Gonch Gardener lookalike agency. Plus there’s something you may not have heard before – Tim, Jeff, Vikki and Garreth attempting to play an even more confusing and aimless DVD game, Tom Baker’s Ultimate Sci-Fi Quiz…

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Actually did they do Telly Addicts mugs? Proper ones as prizes for contestants, obviously, not some grimy old one they’d found at the bottom of the Props Bag.
