Writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington is joined by a series of guests for a bit of a chat about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever does. From Coming On Strong by Broken English and The Order Of The McVitie's Hobnob, to whichever TV programme it was that ended with footage of dandelion seeds being blown away, we're here to try and help, and to confirm that no, nobody else remembers them either.

    The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar - 09 - I Have A Photo Of You Admiring That Lettering

    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 forty nine to fifty four, featuring Suzy Norman on Hugo The Hippo, Richard Littler on the episode of The Waltons with a Poltergeist, Gary Bainbridge on Radio City's Jack Your Body parody Deadly Boring, Tim Worthington on It's A Shame by Kris Kross, Phil Catterall on the On The Hour Christmas Special, Ben Baker on Now - The Christmas Album, Mitch Benn on Two-Stage Self-Assembly Ice Cream Cones, and Darrell Maclaine on Blockbusters Bubblegum. Along the way we'll be finding out what Richard Stilgoe rhymed with ‘poltergeist’, speculating on what local radio’s obsession with records with ‘Of The’ in the title was all about, recounting how the cast of The Sullivans got caught up in a South-East turf war, debating Steve Ditko’s role in the invention of Cornetto, going to see a time-travelling Candy Flip, investigating how the ‘Hand Jive’ era of Blockbusters was entirely illicitly funded by holes in grandparents’ pockets, revisiting Peter Skellern’s ‘Lurpak Years’, lamenting the terrible fate of the Breakaway theme music, and unveiling our new foolproof scheme for alluding to now-disgraced celebrities without actually naming them. Plus there's also a bit of extra chat with Richard about an unusual BBC showing of 2001: A Space Osyssey, and something you might not have heard before - Tim on The Zeitgeist Tapes talking to Emma Burnell and Steve Fielding about the long-forgotten Clangers Election Special Vote For Froglet!

    055 - Lydia Mizon - There Was No Dicaprio Rhyme

    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 QI Elf - and Only Connect champion - Lydia Mizon, who's hoping that the klaxon buzzer thing doesn't go off when she mentions Stoppit And Tidyup, Acorn Archimedes game Fervour, Children's ITV programme Alphabet Castle, Roseanne And The Magic Mirror by Virginia Ironside, VHS-assisted board game Party Mania, and a book about a girl called Lydia who hated cress. Along the way we'll be finding out how to cope with an anxiety dream about The Fiddly Foodle Bird, recalling Hale And Pace's classic 'Irony Virginiaside' sketches whether they actually existed or not, trying to work out what rhymes with Leonardo Dicaprio, and definitely not playing the The Weakest Link PlayStation game.

    Looks Unfamiliar Now The Christmas Album Extra: "Just Cross That Four Out And Put A Five In"

    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 for a special Christmas edition is writer, broadcaster and quizmaster Ben Baker, who’s looking back to the original Now - The Christmas Album from 1985, which has been quietly consigned to Christmas Past for all manner of reasons - some of them more 'problematic' than others. Along the way we'll be revealing the identity of 'The Anti-Tim Song', debating what we would have put on a second volume, exchanging some very frank opinions on Fairytale Of New York, and unveiling our new foolproof scheme for alluding to now-disgraced celebrities without actually naming them.

    Joining Tim for a special Christmas edition is podcaster Phil Catterall, who’s here to talk about the Christmas Specials of radio comedy shows On The Hour, The Chris Morris Music Show and Lee And Herring. Along the way we'll be learning how to pronounce 'BBC7', finding out how to defend yourself from a bear armed only with a book about Week Ending, testing Phil's On The Hour Karaoke skills, and lamenting the terrible fate of the Breakaway theme music. Also, if you're taking part in 'Whigageddon', you might want to have a think before listening to this...

    054 - Gary Bainbridge - There Must Be Some Kid Getting A Hundred And Fifty Grand

    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 Gary Bainbridge, who's doing his best to revisit without actually revisiting Screen Two: Coast To Coast, Radio City's Jack Your Body parody Deadly Boring, cash-in superhero movie Supersonic Man, Audisee's book-and-tape presentation of The War Of The Worlds, Buddy Comic strip Limp-Along Leslie, That Look In Your Eye by Ali Campbell featuring Pamela Starks, the Ace Reports Annual 1981, and Unbranded Soluble Cola Tablets. Along the way we'll be wondering what local radio's obsession with records with 'Of The' in the title was all about, listening to Peabo Bryson's most challenging duet, and assessing the futility of setting yourself up as a Those Spidery Octopus Things That Rolled Down Windows influencer.
