Podcast 275: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Nineteen – Concentration (1968)

by | Dec 19, 2020

It’s day 19 of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar and Edward and Ian are watching the Concentration Christmas special from 24th December 1968. Eschewing the commonly-held notion that the secret to a long life is mild cheese and exciting television, Edward has decided to try it the other way round with a 52-year old US game show and a honking lump of Epoisses. As two drunk Father Christmases do battle to win money for charity, Ian talks 1968, two Kennedys are assassinated and the intellectual rigour of The Price Is Right is called into question.

No such charges can be made against this podcast though, when we deal with important topics like: how many pints is the correct amount of lunchtime pints when you’re at work? Find out now. If you’re British, the correct answer is probably exactly what you thought it was, just one of the many reasons this country is such a respected global power. If you want to watch Concentration, you can find it here.

Tomorrow we’re going back to the 1960s again, with a Christmas special episode of the American game show Concentration.
