Podcast 241: This is our Everest, Part Eleven – The Six O’Clock Show

by | Nov 15, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian continue their odyssey through non-current Current Affairs with The Six O’Clock Show from July 1982. It’s a programme Ian remembers fondly from his childhood and as such this edition is filled with memories and insight. Up for debate are walkmans, vegetable show grift and the futility of live traffic reports on teatime live broadcast television.

Greg Dyke is given his due, there’s some hard-hitting investigative journalism looking into the fried chicken market and Conservative governments – both past and present – are assessed with an even hand. There’s even a shout out for the camera the whole thing was filmed on. You can see the results for yourself here.

On tomorrow’s episode of this podcast, we’ll be covering an episode of Top Gear, but it’s not the sort of Top Gear with which you’re probably familiar.
