Episode 283 - BSB's Sitcom Nightmare
14 Jan 2017 @ 12:42 pm

This week's spotlight focuses on a sitcom that helped bring down BSB, the satellite broadcasting company that should have been where Rupert Murdoch's Sky Television is today - and all because a former Spitting Image writer wanted to satirise US 1950's sitcoms -by using Nazis. No, really.

So join Paula, Sam and Glenn as the delve into the murky past of 1990's satellite telly to spotlight "Heil Honey - I'm Home!"

Next week: We visit a small village of rebel Gauls, holding out against the invaders.

7 Jan 2017 @ 11:12 am

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yes folks, 2016 has eventually left after it outstayed its's welcome (a while ago), but it's onwards and upwards with the team as they discuss how they spent their Christmases, their thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and the fact that Death seemed to have a Christmas all of his very own as he took a lot of beloved celebrities this time around, including the very lovely Carrie Fisher, who we remember on this podcast, along with the other celebs who sadly passed away this year.

Next Week: The sitcom that helped bring down an entire broadcaster.
