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 writer Anna Cale, who’s trying her best not to think of punning introductions to Sport Billy, Silly Games by Lindy Layton, Welsh language children’s serial Joni Jones, mid-eighties romantic comedy The Girl In The Picture, blockbuster Australian miniseries Return To Eden, The Incredible Hulk Smash-Up Action Game, Trev & Simon’s Stupid Video and Diana Dors’ TV-am slot Dors’ Dozen. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to ruin a promising romance by being touchy about Camberwick Green, studying for a degree in Bruce Leeology, discussing whether The Hulk is more frightening when ‘revving’ and revealing what to do when confronted with a sentient out-of-control Blue Peter feature.
