042 - BOB FISCHER - FALSE FLAG GIANT HOGWEED

Joining Tim this time is broadcaster Bob Fischer, who's saying 'aaaaahld up to anyone who doesn't remember BBC Daytime variety show The Tom O'Connor Roadshow, a media panic about hazardous plant Giant Hogweed, EastEnders spinoff single Can't Get A Ticket (For The World Cup) by Peter Dean, rum-favoured confectionery Glee Bars, J. Edward Oliver's 'Abolish Tuesday' campaign, and How To Be A Wally by Paul Manning. Along the way we'll be finding out the difference between 'spectators' and 'fans', blowing the whistle on The Brexit Party's sinister links to Giant Hogweed, working out how to get from Peter Dean to David Bowie in three moves, and learning far too much about the industrial action practices of school dinner ladies.

LOOKS UNFAMILIAR MOVIE DOUBLE BILL EXTRA: "A GIANT RAYMOND BURR THE SIZE OF GODZILLA"

Grab some popcorn and take a seat for a Double Bill of monster movie mayhem from the archives! First up, we're off to the video shop with Tim Worthington and Ben Baker for a chat about 'Video Nasties', then grab your 3D glasses and head for the Drive-In as Garreth F. Hirons tells us all about the old-skool city-smashing antics of Godzilla. Along the way we'll be meeting the Japanese Donovan, queueing up behind Phil Cool to rent Zombie Creeping Flesh, and getting thoroughly fed up of the endless 'affair with an octopus' storylines on EastEnders.
