Looks Unfamiliar Halloween Extra: "Last Play School House On The Left"

BBC Test Card F, as discussed by Tim Worthington, Ben Baker and Phil Catterall in the Halloween Special of Looks Unfamiliar.


Looks Unfamiliar Halloween Extra: “Last Play School House On The Left”

It’s time for a creepy treat from the archives as Tim Worthington, Ben Baker and Phil Catterall count down the Top Twenty Five Things That You Were Scared Of As A Youngster That Weren’t Supposed To Be Scary! Yes, it’s time to hide behind the sofa from Camberwick Green, Return To Oz, Test Card F, Picture Box, Raggerty, World In Action, Professor Yaffle, The Open University, Angie Baby, Ode To Billie Joe, Spitting Image, Vrillon Of Ashtar Galactic Command, The Blue Peter Boat and much, much, terrifyingly more. Along the way we’ll be waving cheerfully to some Video Nasties to avoid looking at the Children’s section, meeting Parky The Lion, learning why The Muppets aren’t frightening but their eyes are, finding out which family friendly cinematic icon was really a man who exploded and went inside out, and in a lighter moment recalling the classic scene where Terry Scott falls through a chair. And right at the end, there’s our very own scary broadcast intrusion featuring a dog dressed as an elephant… stitch that, ‘Pipes’!.

Looks Unfamiliar 30: John Rain 

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 John Rain, host of SMERSH Pod, who’s querying the lack of public recognition for Your Mother Wouldn’t Like It, E.T. Cola Creams, flop one-off charity event Trading Places Day, TV phone vote thriller Murder In Space, BBC2 sketch show Hello Mum and Oink! comic. Along the way we’ll be finding out what Jaws’ favourite crisp flavour is, enduring a sleep deprivation-derived Showaddywaddy hallucination, learning how to keep Doctor Who on the air by eating crisps, and witnessing the single worst attempt at asking Catherine Tate on a date ever.

Looks Unfamiliar Movie Double Bill Extra: “A Giant Raymond Burr The Size Of Godzilla”

Grab some popcorn and take a seat for a Double Bill of monster movie mayhem from the archives! First up, we’re off to the video shop with Tim Worthington and Ben Baker for a chat about ‘Video Nasties’, then grab your 3D glasses and head for the Drive-In as Garreth F. Hirons tells us all about the old-skool city-smashing antics of Godzilla. Along the way we’ll be meeting the Japanese Donovan, queueing up behind Phil Cool to rent Zombie Creeping Flesh, and getting thoroughly fed up of the endless ‘affair with an octopus’ storylines on EastEnders.

Looks Unfamiliar #29: Phil Norman - Salvador Dali's Scalextric Set




Looks Unfamiliar 29 - Phil Norman

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 animator and writer Phil Norman, who’s fairly confident that very few people will recall S-S-S-Single Bed by Fox, terrifying ITV schools show Leapfrog, The Country Life Christmas Box, Humrush by KMD, rock musical drama Body Contact, Oscar The Rabbit In Rubbidge, Erasmus Microman and jaw-dropping Anthony Newley film Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humpe And Find True Happiness?. Along the way we’ll also be speculating on what went on in the Chock-A-Block factory, revealing Fred Harris’ secret Video Nasty links, chronicling the rival warring factions of the ‘puppets on a black background’ phenomenon (none of whom were responsible for an Off-The-Peg Ian Paisley), and trying our hardest to avoid talking about a cannibalistic emulsified cross between Last Tango In Paris and Straw Dogs. And if you can help in finding three seconds of Sylvester McCoy being hit with planks of wood, please let us know!
