Think Aloud: Johnny Ball Talks To TV Cream
In the spring of 2016, TV Cream sat down with Johnny Ball to talk about his 50-year career in show business. We're making the podcast available again today in the hope it might provide some cheer.
In this one-off, Johnny Ball really does reveal all. Such as...
How Bob Monkhouse took umbrage when he thought Johnny was stealing his gags; how Johnny's big break on The Val Doonican Show went spectacularly wrong; why he originally balked at the idea of presenting Play School; how a dreadful experience on Yorkshire TV spawned the creation of Think of a Number; the reason why the scene dock doors in BBC Bristol have a chunk cut out of them; why Play Away became a more lucrative writing gig than anything the LE department had to offer; Johnny's ill-fated sojourn to Central Television; and - and! - what went wrong on The Terry & Gaby show!
Steven Moffat watches The Prisoner
In the final episode of this run - we'll be back for Lockdown II - Steven Moffat stays in his study and watches the penultimate episode of Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner (titled 'Once Upon a Time', which you can see here) and then tells TV Cream all about it...
...and in this bumper-length goodbye edition, he also tells us about the advice he wishes he'd followed in writing for Doctor Who, how one goes about scripting a scene in which your hero averts a war by making an angry speech, and alights upon the handful of good things that have come out of these last, strange few months.
Be seeing you!
Jack Kibble-White watches Cool It
BONUS EPISODE (which won't appear on the TV Cream site)! This is the 'pilot' edition, recorded at the start of lockdown. And, in it, Jack Kibble-White stays indoors in Glasgow, watches the first episode of Phil Cool's 1985 debut comedy series, Cool It (https://bit.ly/TVCIndoors19a), and then tells TV Cream all about it.
