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 broadcaster and writer Bibi Lynch, who’s debating who is the prettiest one on the bus out of The Amazing Cosmic Awareness Of Duffy Moon, a quote from Whistle Down The Wind that she knows despite never having seen Whistle Down The Wind, Look And Read serial The Boy From Space, You Just Might See Me Cry by Our Kid, and Spanish Gold Sweet Tobacco. Along the way we’ll be discussing the least effective methods of communicating with Elvis Presley, playing with the official Amanda Holden Slinky, keeping our fingers crossed that Scarlett Johansson will impress your parents, revealing the hidden link between The BBC Schools Clock and Baron Samedi, and recounting the terrible tale of how Ringo Starr was defrauded by some fish and chips.

If you’ve enjoyed this, you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
Alternately, if you’re just feeling generous, you can buy me a coffee here. The Spanish Gold Sweet Tobacco is most definitely an optional extra though.
The similarly spooky Look And Read serial The King’s Dragon featured in Looks Unfamiliar with Will Maclean, which you can find here.
Bibi also features in The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar alongside Gabby Hutchinson Crouch on Mr. Men Songs, Hilary Machell on Enamel Bedroom Door Name Plates, Juliet Brando on The Telebugs, Tim Worthington on Bad Ronald, Something Outa Nothing and The Hoarding, Mic Wright on Sharky And George and Grace Dent on The Max Headroom Broadcast Signal Intrusion Incident; you can find it here.
The Boy From Space also features in The Sci-Fi That Time Forgot, which you can find here. Wish I Could Sing It To You, the feature about dating and the CD that I made for someone that didn’t have a CD player, is here, and the story of how I saw hugely inappropriate horror film Bad Ronald on ITV one ordinary afternoon can be found in in You’re Weird, Ronald here.
