Podcast 247: This is our Everest, Part Seventeen – Houseparty

by | Nov 21, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian have been invited to Southern Television’s Houseparty, a cursed daytime TV discussion show that leaves one of our heroes absolutely foaming at the mouth. Meanwhile, Ian provides another potted history about an ITV franchise and we assess the right way to lose with grace and step aside with dignity, somehow without mentioning Donald Trump once.

Richard Stilgoe makes an appearance, rattling the keys but doesn’t stick around for the party, most of which is taken up by anchovies, sewing machines and corporal punishment. If you’d also like to put in a fleeting appearance at the Houseparty, you can find it here.

Tomorrow’s edition of This is our Everest is an episode of Channel Four’s Wartime Kitchen & Garden.
