Times Like These is the comedy panel quiz testing the team’s knowledge of popular culture over the decades.
This episode we look back at childhood toys & cartoons in “Growing Pains”, trawl through celebrity oddities in “Celebrity Landfill” & pay attention to old public service announcements in “Safety First”. Only to find some of the panel’s toys were hugely inappropriate, the current political landscape is a remake of Star Wars & the dinosaurs may have been wiped out by pornographic magazines. Mog McIntyre keeps an eye on our feuding panellists with 80/90’s Team Captain Tom Eames joined by Sophie Petzal, writer & actor for numerous productions including comedy sketch show The Unprofessionals & darkly comic play Cause Celebre. Joining 60’s/70’s team captain Mathew Priest is BIRSt’s very own Programme Controller & Rock Climber Christopher Brooke.
Producer, Writer & Chair – Mog McIntyre. Team Captains: Tom Eames & Mathew Priest. Joined by: Sophie Petzal & Christopher Brooke. Assistant Producers (Live Recording): Matt Harrison & Emma Houlton. Additional Material by Dougal Patmore.
