Allo Allo was a British sitcom that was always on in Brett and Cliff's family homes growing up.

The 2008 movie Lake Mungo is considered one of the scariest of all time. The documentary-style tale of a missing/dead teenager is way ahead of the curve. That the director Joel Anderson has seemingly disappeared from view after making this, his sole movie, makes it even more curious. There's also some bizarre people chat, football excitement and gr…
 
We're joined by former Empire editor Mark Dinning to discuss the scariest movie he's ever seen - 1980's The Changeling. The George C. Scott haunted house movie is something of a lost classic and a favourite of the likes of Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg and other greats.

Brett introduced Cliff to Dylan when they were 15, and Cliff didn't like him. Years later he's pretty much a completist, so forced Brett to listen to his weird-ish, poorly received 18th album, 1978's Street Legal. There's some football chat as well, and a quiz about tube stations. Music comes from Lines from a Poem with new single Happy Pills. Chec…

Cliff chooses this 1970 movie starring Jane Asher as a young swimming baths attendant who toys with the emotions of a young admirer who works with her.

There's another bird update, some birthday chat, a quiz and music from Fr…
 
Brett suggests this little-known British horror from 1972. Death Line, also known as Raw Meat in the US, stars Donald Pleasance as an inspector looking into the disappearance of a high-ranking UK official on the London Underground.

This week's episode takes us to space, the final frontier in fact, with one of Brett's favourite lockdown shows.

There's also some fat kid chat, a quiz about iffy TV moments…
 
The low-budget gorefest to beat them all, Evil Dead was released in 1981 after around three years of work following Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert graduated from college.

We go back to 1985 to check in on Marty McFly and Doc Brown, as they go even further back to 1955. Cliff's favourite film is full of classic scenes, lines and character (and cars).

Following Sometime in New York City, John Lennon returned to a more personal, love-song based approach for 1973's Mind Games. Written and recorded just as he and Yoko were making decisions about their future, it's not one of Lennon's critically acclaimed records, but after hearing it as a child, Cliff was hooked. There's a scam story, bird chat, an…

Alice Lowe's directorial debut Prevenge, which she also wrote and starred in, is a masterpiece of dark comedy and horror. Great writing, performances, music and camerawork all go towards making this one of our favourite films of recent times.

Strangeways Prison in Manchester, England, was all over the news in 1990 thanks to a 25-day riot by prisoners over conditions inside the Victorian jailhouse. Back in 1980 TV cameras went inside to find out what life inside was like, and even then things were pretty grim. We look at the 1980 documentary series and discuss the rights and wrongs of th…
 
To celebrate Brett's birthday we watch his favourite film, John Carpenter's The Thing, starring Kurt Russell.

A look at the revealing, pioneering fly-on-the-wall TV documentary The Impossible Dream, also known as Do I Not Like That.
