Podcast 236: This is our Everest, Part Seven – Oh Happy Band

by | Nov 11, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, the laughter and joviality of the last few editions is brought to a grinding halt as Edward and Ian watch Oh Happy Band!, a comedy series from 1980 that is so relentlessly boring and unfunny it hasn’t seen the light of day since. Until now!

There’s much wistful reminiscence about how every other Croft and Lloyd sitcom is far better than this one, an explanation of how twitching an birdwatching are not quite the same thing and some thoughtful consideration of the likelihood that a home-stuffed rare bird with an electric arsehole could deceive a government keen to build a new airport. It’s a special This Is Our Everest after dark edition, so if nothing else you can bask in how tired we sound, in addition to how sick and tired of programmes like this we are. You can watch it too, if you like.
