Look Around You – Published: 1 Feb 2005

The only science programming currently on the BBC is a spoof science programme called Look Around You.

Inventor of the Week, Leonard Hatred demonstrates his spray-can noise blocker ‘Psilence’ on presenter Peter Packard.

From an interview with Robert Popper (co-creator of Look Aroun You)….

Collective: Which particular vision of the future do you like best and why?

Robert: I like the vision of the 1430s as proposed by the people of the 1390s. They thought that ruffs would still be in.

I’m left wondering whatever happened to those synthesizers with built-in security alarms. Oh, yeah – they all got used on dodgy Italian dance records in the late 80s… Good old Synthesizer Patel.

Do the Crawl 
Published: 5 Feb 2005

So, commiserations to Daisy, baby-racer and one year old daughter of Tom and Vicky … She took part in one of Dick and Dom’s baby races this morning but didn’t really get off the blocks.

Dick and Dom in da Bungalow is a surprising funny (for adults) kids programme on Saturday Mornings. The racing of crawling babies is only one small part of the chaotic silliness.

My favourite ‘feature’ is a puppet cat who seems to be doing a weekly ‘Crap Towns‘ report. This week Letchworth Garden City… which truly is a crap town.

Need laughs? Visit the Letchworth Garden City website. Grief.

Also This Week…

Saw a film called Sideways which was one of those no-budget wonder-films. Excellent, funny, moving buddy movie stuff. You feel like you’ve had a little holiday after leaving the cinema and you’ve learn a lot about wine without really trying to.

Bogeys is about the only funny thing on Dick & Dom (apart from when they have to apologise for wearing risque t-shirts to keep their jobs). The rest of it is sub-Tiswas drivel or, as you highlight, nicked from successful coffee table / toilet books such as The Idler’s Crap Towns series.
Bring back Sally James, I say.
