The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar #11: This Car Has Abilities Beyond The Capabilities Of An Ordinary Car

The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar with 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 is a collection of highlights from shows sixty one to sixty six, featuring Justin Lewis on the original Only Fools And Horses theme tune, Jane Hill on His Land, Gabby Hutchinson Crouch on The Llŷn Peninsula Earthquake, Carrie Dunn on Too Close To The Sun, Tom Williamson on Samurai Pizza Cats and Bob Fischer on Eighties Tabloid Celebrities . Along the way we’ll be finding out what evasive manoeuvres to take if Cliff Richard’s guitar starts falling over in church, querying where Matt Goss might actually have watched a very old wall crumble, puzzling over how New York can be ‘The Citiest Of Cities’, recalling Joan Collins’ scandalous affair with Ian Revolution 9-Smith, and holding a Bad Musicals Support Group meeting in the interval of another bad musical.
