Looks Unfamiliar: Joanne Sheppard – It’d Be Like Taking A Bungalow For A Walk

Buzz by Roger Hargreaves (Hodder & Stoughton, 1978) - listen to Joanne Sheppard talking about it in Looks Unfamiliar.

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 book reviewer Joanne Sheppard, who’s scouring the shelves for literary records of The December Rose, national panic about the Colorado Beetle, Brontosaurus, Will You Wait For Me? by David Bellamy, Roger Hargreaves’ Timbuctoo, KP Wickers, the BBC’s 1979 adaptation of The Enchanted Castle, Major Morgan The Electronic Organ and Wilderness Road. Along the way we’ll be revealing how to spot a supervillain transporting a ‘formula’, debating the identity of the Chickeniest Chicken Flavour Of All Time, asking Jeeves about The Ugly-Wuglies, questioning Little Professor’s qualifications and, most importantly of all, beating Dave Clark at table tennis.
