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 comedian and writer Jane Hill, who’s on the lookout for anyone else who remembers gymnastics-heavy Children’s BBC thriller Out Of Bounds, a mystery Saturday Morning Cinema serial about pirates, Cliff Richard documentary movie His Land, Showell Styles’ ‘Simon And Mag Hughes’ mountain adventure novels, rig-bound BBC drama Oil Strike North!, and artificial mystery meat product Breakfast Slices. Along the way we’ll be finding out what evasive manoeuvres to take if Cliff Richard’s guitar starts falling over in church, questioning the entire purpose of Sweet Pebbles, and trying not to get caught reading a Green Dragon book when you’re actually Red Dragon age.

Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. Swipe Simon and Mag’s flask if you have to. They’re probably ‘plucky’ enough to improvise around it.
