Hosted by Glenn and his very special guests, this podcast is a virtual trip back in time to the halcyon days of our childhood - the 1980s (and early 1990s). Every week we explore at least one facet of 80's pop culture, discuss questions from our listeners, and report the news from at least 4 of the main franchises of the 80's that are still around today!
Episode 283 - BSB's Sitcom Nightmare

This week's spotlight focuses on a sitcom that helped bring down BSB, the satellite broadcasting company that should have been where Rupert Murdoch's Sky Television is today - and all because a former Spitting Image writer wanted to satirise US 1950's sitcoms -by using Nazis. No, really.

So join Paula, Sam and Glenn as the delve into the murky past of 1990's satellite telly to spotlight "Heil Honey - I'm Home!"

Next week: We visit a small village of rebel Gauls, holding out against the invaders.
