Podcast 254: This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Four – That’s Life!

by | Nov 28, 2020

On today’s This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian find their most amusing misprints from local newspapers and watch an episode of That’s Life from 1986. It’s a programme that provokes a number of thoughts and feelings, particularly a quite unprecedented swell of good will towards the British general public in Ian, who had thought such things were long behind him.

Edward has some alternative names for disenfranchised cobblers, we grass up a consumer who ought to know better for aiding and abetting in a criminal offence and are decidedly lukewarm about a sitting Member of Parliament. Have smartphones and Tumblr memes rendered programmes like this one obsolete? Where does it fall in the parabola of Esther Rantzen’s era of social dominance? And exactly what percentage more uncomfortable does wearing a seat belt in a car make you? We find out once and for all. You can watch the episode here.

Tomorrow’s episode of This is our Everest sees us go all the way back to the 1870s 1980s with an episode of Out of Town, with Jack Hargreaves. You can watch that here.
