Looks Unfamiliar: Lydia Mizon – Keep Away From Our Music You Blue Freaks

Look Around You (BBC2, 2002-05) - listen to Tim Worthington and Lydia Mizon chatting 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 QI Elf – and Only Connect champion – Lydia Mizon, who’s hoping that choosing Twisted Flax might give her some clues about the existence of Look Around YouMongrelsKarma Hotel by Spooks, The Smurfs Go Pop!, Australian children’s television show Lift OffSecret Agent: The Hunt For Red Rock Rover and Math Rescue, and competing Teletext ‘youth’ pages Ceefax Backchat and 4-Tel MegaZine. Along the way we’ll be watching BBC Three’s Greg Davies Firing Cheeseballs At A Dog Undogged, finding out how Ally Sloper invented Teletext, and revealing the hidden link between Margaret Thatcher and Children’s BBC’s ‘Boz’.
