Looks Unfamiliar 67: Mark Thompson

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 political commentator Mark Thompson, who’s intercepting encrypted transmissions from the mothership in search of V: The Series, bullying-themed children’s storybook Dirty Dick, Channel 4 cloning sitcom oddity The Giftie, dystopian BBC drama The Mad Death, The Different Story (World Of Lust And Crime) by Peter Schilling, and handheld video game Space Shuttle. Along the way we’ll be debating the different between Game And Watch and Game And Time, revealing how Jeremy Beadle would have outsmarted The Visitors, and querying the provenance of tapes that ended up in ‘Dave’s Video Van’.
