Podcast 262: This is Our Everest, Part Six – The Big Break Christmas Special, 1992

by | Dec 6, 2020

Day 6 (yes, it is really only day 6) of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar sees Edward and Ian watching the 1992 Big Break Christmas Special, regardless of where they’d rather be or what they’d rather be doing. Listen as your heroes deal with the conflict of watching one of their favourite people and one of their least favourite people simultaneously for half an hour, as all the while what Edward seemingly believes to be a ranking tournament on the professional snooker tour takes place.

There’s also talk of Ian’s likely whereabouts when this programme was first broadcast, a considered view of whether or not television hosts really doubled up charitable donations out of their own pocket and a discussion about the impact the Covid-19 pandemic may have had on the British dogging community. Snooker fans can watch the episode for themselves here.

Join us tomorrow morning for the oldest show that we’ve featured so far, and probably the oldest show that we’ll ever feature in this series: The Appleyards, from 1956.
