Episode Summary

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 Paul Cornell, who's wondering if anyone else remembers Australian sci-fi series Phoenix Five, canonically-dubious Middle Earth-'inspired' novel Fear In Firland. the Danny Dunn book series, BBC Saturday Morning show Outa-Space!, an instructional manual for astral projection, and Terry Wogan's insistence on playing records that resolutely refused to become hits. Along the way we'll be pitching story ideas for The Magic Alex New Adventures, reciting the lyrics to Blondie's ode to Gordon Murray, revealing which popular song has less than one note in it, and trying not to think about what 'Dog Of Finland' might entail.

About the Show

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.
