Looks Unfamiliar Looks Familiar Extra: “If You’re One Of Those People Who Sells Crack…”


In a special edition of Looks Unfamiliar, Tim Worthington and Ben Baker take a look back at the show that gave this show its name – Looks Familiar. ITV’s light-hearted Denis Norden-fronted nostalgia show is itself the stuff of hazy dust-caked photo-pages-falling-out-of-library-book recollections now, but how does it stand up in a world where irony is more important than accuracy when it comes to ‘remembering’ things? Tim and Ben watch a couple of editions and have a bit of a chat about the comic potential of endless clips of men dressed as women falling into some water, Richard Murdoch’s cameo in The Wire, and the cinematic careers of Alan Cowboy and ‘Britain’s Rin Tin Tin’ Ian The Dog. Plus - find out who we’d book for a revival of Looks Familiar!

Looks Unfamiliar #27: Jack Kibble-White – You’ll Never Silence Paul Coia




Looks Unfamiliar 27 - Jack Kibble-White

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 Jack Kibble-White, who’s turning up the trademark TV Cream Lazy Uncritical Nostalgia for a look at Don’t Give Up Your Day Job by Richard Digance, Games World, United Kingdom: Working For The Enemy, comics fanzine Arken Sword, Children’s ITV filler Who’s Next, and the Compose A New Theme Tune For This Morning competition. Along the way we’ll also be finding out why there are no jesters in Star Wars, which videos Morrissey sneaked from the top shelf, and why an interview with Pat Mills is more exciting than a night on the town with Angelina Jolie. Plus there’s a bit of natter about a theatre troupe who came to Jack’s school and stole some cheese…

The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar #4: The Real Bowie Says To The Imagined Bowie


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. This is a collection of highlights from shows nineteen to twenty four, featuring Paul Kirkley on The Kids From Fame Again, Garreth F. Hirons on Sweet 75, Darrell Maclaine on The Brennan JB7, James Gent on When The Wind Blows by David Bowie, Ros Ballinger on Microsoft Explorapedia, and Jonny Morris on Jesta Giggle by The Barron Knights. Along the way we’ll be finding out why The Barron Knights should have covered T.V.O.D., where the whistling from Never Let Me Down was ‘borrowed’ from, which CDs you should never trust your car with, and which former member of Nirvana really loves accordions. Plus there’s also something you may not have heard before – Tim on Betamax Video Club talking about Absolute Beginners, and an extra downhill slaloming surprise at the end…
