Podcast 249: This is our Everest, Part Nineteen – Pebble Mill At Ten

by | Nov 23, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian get into a festive mood to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Pebble Mill, by watching Pebble Mill At 10. This is not, as Edward thought, a racy after-hours version of the BBC’s venerable lunchtime magazine show but rather a shambling birthday party complete with a car rally, parrots and a really, really old 71-year old woman.

Aided and abetted by two of their favourite Teds – Heath and Bovis – our heroes, now rapidly reaching the point of no return with their stupid project, celebrate the TV and Radio Act 1972 and all its unforeseen consequences, explain the difference between Idi Amin and Donald Trump and bask in the brief but always welcome glow of a pep talk from Clare Rayner. Will the harrier jump jet arrive on time? Whatever happened to the other Everly Brother? And was it a mistake to give the planet Racism access to a teleportation device? Some or all of these questions may be answered. If you’d like to join in the celebrations, you can watch it all unfold here.
