Looks Unfamiliar #12: Steve O’Brien – E.T. Pretzel Design


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 does. Joining Tim this time is entertainment journalist Steve O'Brien, who fills us in on his hotly contested recollections of existentially troubling animation Simon In The Land Of Chalk Drawings, high-concept short-lived snack KP Sky Divers, sitcom spinoff Health And Efficiency, High Time and Ice Cold Cube by The Stone Roses, the BBC Sunday Classics serial Brat Farrar, and the Alfred Hitchcock And The Three Investigators books. Along the way we’ll be finding out who is officially the most punchable Doctor Who alien, what constitutes The Vindaloo Of Corn Snacks, and how many volumes of Michael Winner's Choose Your Own Adventure Books were published.

Looks Unfamiliar #11: Lisa Parker And Andrew Trowbridge – He Looks Like A Normal Boy With A Nose


Looks Unfamiliar 11 - Lisa Parker And Andrew Trowbridge

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 does. Joining Tim this time are podcasters Lisa Parker and Andrew Trowbridge, who relate their not especially shared memories of Big John Little John, Virtual Murder, Matchbox Cascade, the Bobby Brewster books, Enid Blyton’s Mr. Pink Whistle, and the Jaws game. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to re-enact Total Wipeout in the comfort of your own home, how many voices ‘Radio’s Man Of A Thousand Voices’ really had, and why The Clown from Camberwick Green could never qualify as a master of disguise.

Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra: “CRISMAS by BEETLES”


Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra: “CRISMAS by BEETLES”

As a special extra Christmas treat for Looks Unfamiliar listeners, here’s a compilation of highlights from the archives, with extracts from Christmas-themed podcasts of Christmases past by Tim Worthington, Ben Baker, Phil Catterall and Darrell Maclaine-Jones. A lot of this hasn’t been available for years, and a lot of it is still rather funny, so we hope you enjoy it! Along the way we talk about Now – The Christmas Album, Val Doonican, A Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector, School Fairs, Department Store Grottos, Last-Minute Shopping and Shambolic Office Parties; run down charts of Bad Santas, The Worst Ever Christmas Songs and The Best Ever Christmas Quotes; and listen to bewildering Christmas Singles by Russ Conway, Rotterdam Termination Source, Mr. Christmas, Percy Sugden from Coronation Street and The Count from Sesame Street. We’ll also be finding out who Tim thinks is more important than Father Christmas, who Ben suspects might be Father Christmas, what happened when Phil went carol singing, and what the other tape in Darrell’s house was. Not to mention who recorded a song called ‘Santa’s A Big Fat Fuck’…
