Podcast 266: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Ten: In Sickness & In Health

by | Dec 10, 2020

What would Christmas be if it didn’t include at least one uncomfortable discussion about racism? Well, day 10 of our Advent calendar sees Edward and Ian watch the 1985 In Sickness and In Health Christmas special in order to facilitate this. It’s a programme Ian finds so odious he doesn’t even mention the fact it has a theme tune by Chas and Dave. Words such as “screed”, “diatribe” and “bulwark” make an appearance. Our heroes speculate as to the exact way this programme got recommissioned and what it cost everyone involved, including society. If you’d like to be reminded of how Brexit happened, you can watch the programme here.
