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 are Round The Archives hosts Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, who are assessing predictions of how many people in the future will remember Big Terror Movie Themes by Geoff Love And His Orchestra, Plug Comic, Children’s BBC drama The Swish Of The Curtain, Jim Henson’s Dinosaurs, Arthur C. Clarke’s Report On Planet Three and Profiles Of The Future, and Are You Being Served Sir? by John Inman. Along the way we’ll be debating the commercial viability of Giant Dog Movie Themes With Digby The Biggest Dog In The World And Eleven Other Famous Giant Dogs, meeting some Heavy Metal Morris Dancers, assessing Plug’s chances of survival in the pre-Alternative Comedy standup scene, and revealing which of Arthur C. Clarke’s party tricks you should definitely not attempt at home.

Ghosts, Monsters And Legends (And Tennis Prodigies) is a look at some of the spookier Children’s BBC serials that would definitely not have been a good fit for the protagonists of The Swish Of The Curtain; you can find it here.
