I’m on the latest edition of Round The Archives, talking to Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge about zany early seventies children’s sitcom Here Come The Double Deckers!, and in particular the sci-fi themed advertising satire episode Invaders From Space. Along the way we’ll be finding out why that exclamation mark in the show’s title was so important, how Here Come The Double Deckers! outdid Doomwatch and invented the Ibiza Foam Party, who Piers Morgan’s least favourite Double Decker is, and just how large a ‘double double double decker bus’ would have to be.
You can listen to Round The Archives: Here Come The Double Deckers! here.
You can hear Lisa and Andrew on my podcast Looks Unfamiliar – featuring some chat about similarly offbeat seventies children’s sitcom Big John Little John – here.
The feature about Doctor Who And The Space Museum mentioned in Round The Archives: Here Come The Double Deckers! can be found here.
You can find lots more about my early viewing habits in my book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
