Podcast 268: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Twelve – Runaround

by | Dec 12, 2020

Day 12 of our Advent calendar sees your heroes watching another programme from the ITV schedule on Christmas Day 1980: Runaround, the energetic children’s quiz presented by Mike Reid. It’s a programme that provides Edward and Ian some blessed relief from the poundings that have gone and those that are yet to come. Up for discussion is plastics technology, taxidermy, Big Daddy’s prospects as a breakout children’s TV star and exactly how much animal abuse can really be tolerated in light entertainment. So now you’ll know. If you’d like to watch the episode in question, you can find it here.
