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!
