Hiya pals! It’s the second part of our 1982 scary double as Chris, Craig and Jack dive into George the Aero’s excellent portmanteau offering CREEPSHOW. Join in by arguing furiously with your near neighbours but then agree on how great Leslie Nielsen was then spend the rest of the day mothering over wilfully obscure TV shows. It’s easy! As usual, kick in as the ident moves on and enjoy. However, watch out for a Stilogean interjection near the top of the shop.  You’ll know it when you hear it.  If you don’t want to listen to it using our player (above), then download it (140 MB).

THIS COMMENTARY IS RATED ‘R’
CREAMGUIDE(FILMS) REVERSE FAQ: 
1) Jack Kamen did the comic book in the film and the poster but we don’t know who did the intertitle illustrations. Fans?
2) Viveca Lindfors
3) It isn’t though
4) And in a Creamguide(Films) commentaries/James Joyce/Romero/King mashup, the old man comes back to life cos the nurse from Legion spills whiskey on the grave
5) Nigel Patrick we really meant
6) Which is ironic cos we can’t remember watching it
7) Quarter is ’48 and Trio is a biscuit
8) Rosanna Arquette
9) And brilliantly he had the fart machine on set for this
10) 27th December 1987. Other guests include Jon P’twee smelling of bums
11) 2010 and he was 84 having been born in 1926 in Regina in Canada and not BALDIMORE
12) We meant Joe Pilato. The only film we’ve seen Piscopo in is Wise Guys. In which he taught no one how to laugh.
13) Nigel le Vaillant. See! Twats.
14) “Dangerfield is a British drama series which focuses on the activities of small town doctor and police surgeon Paul Dangerfield, played by Nigel Le Vaillant. Six series of the programme were produced, broadcasting from 27 January 1995 until 19 November 1999.” It says here.
15) John Michie and Millicent Martin. Millicent Martin?
16) Not father and son though; judge and convict
17) Fucking look it up yourself
18) Michu Meszaros who in fact was inside the puppet. Paul Fusco who did the voice is still alive
19) Dead
20) ‘Drat’ is from W.C. Fields, non-swearing-swearing fact fans

22) Vote Clinton
23) Howell Granger

And we’re back in the room! Be afraid, be very afraid. On the Internet, no one can hear you scream. Anyway, come over to the other side with Chris, Craig and Jack down in the Valley for Spieleydrawer’s seminal horror bobbins from 1982: POLTERGEIST. It’s got everything! Impressions, bottles of ginger, ethnic misunderstanding, swearing about old shops and the triumphant return of Grant Brady: Hair Like a Lady. Kick it on after the ident and ‘enjoy.’ If you don’t want to listen to it using our player (above), then download it (129.2 MB).

SPOILERS: Jack’s Stone Roses impression is rubbish
THIS COMMENTARY IS RATED ‘A’
CREAMGUIDE(FILMS) REVERSE FAQ:
1) US telly (NTSC) had 525 lines, proper telly (PAL over here) had 625
2) E Buzz (the name, not the dog) came from Saturday Night Live. Which probably means it wasn’t funny.
3) The other E.T. crossover is that Drew Barrymore auditioned for this and as a result got the gig in E.T.
4) Both her and Heather O’Rourke (spoilers!) are buried in the same cemetery
5) He also has a poster for something called Super Bowl XXIII which wouldn’t take place for several years later. No one cares. He has an Atari too. In 1982!
6) A Guy Named Joe, 1943
7) ‘Reagan: The Man, The Cunt’ is available from Jonathan Cape
8) The clown doll is in Planet Hollywood in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Also horrific.
9) I have now. It’s ace.
10) We did. Coming soon.
11) Yep.
12) Love it so much got the name wrong: it’s James Lipton.
13) Bouillon de Culture. For fuck’s sake. It ran for ten years. Hence Brexit.
14) That’s Gene Shalit. Book and film critic for the Today Show from 1970 to 2010. And…he’s still alive! Aged 90 and still being ace in NYC.
15) “Eet ees an event sociologique!” Hence Brexit.
16) And based on chat in the film, she had her first kid at 16. Oh aye.
17) From 1989.
18) Spielberg was scared shitless as a kid by clowns and a tree that was outside his house. But he DID NOT DIRECT THIS FILM. Ahem.
19) The house is in Simi Valley California, it’s not missing and is still there and in fact, it says here, the same family still live there (not the Freelings.)
20) That is probably bollocks (hard to believe) but James Cameron and Peter Jackson prefer the term “extended edition” or “special edition.” Or especially in Cameron’s case for his latter efforts: “shit version.”
21) It lost to E.T.
22) Although remember it took some time after the US release for it to hit theatres in Britain. Those were the days, kids.
23) ‘A Growl and a Shout’ is available from Hodder & Stoughton.
24) By this logic, the house would have to disappear into an empty plot behind it.
25) 5 minutes and 2 seconds. Still a record. Hence Brexit.
26) This was the last scene to be filmed. Whatever that matters.
27) Brian Gibson. But he had nowt to do with this one. The cinematographer for this was Matthew F Leonetti.
28) The great James Karen.
29) Cohagen WILL return.
30) August 5th, 1981 (we recorded this ages ago.)
31) He did say ‘well’ a lot.
32) He sure is. 87, folks.
33) From 1989. She does have other credits, including several episodes of the epic Santa Barbara.
34) We went. And we saw her. Oh my.
35) Carl Weathers didn’t turn up
36) Unfortunately there isn’t going to be another one because this one didn’t make ‘enough’ money. Schmucks.
37) Though it’s worth noting the only character who dies is the Tweety the canary.
38) 11 months to the day: 12th October, limited scope anniversary fans.
39) Apparently, this was the only scene Heather O’Rourke got scared during the filming of.
40) I checked. It’s there in the credits of my VHS copy

Think Aloud: Johnny Ball talks to TV Cream

Posted in Posted in | 9 Comments »

What a handsome chap!
In the spring of 2016, TV Cream sat down with Johnny Ball to talk about his 50-year career in show business.

In this one-off podcast Johnny Ball really does reveal all. Such as…

How Bob Monkhouse took umbrage when he thought Johnny was stealing his gags; how Johnny’s big break on The Val Doonican Show went spectacularly wrong; why he originally balked at the idea of presenting Play School; how a dreadful experience on Yorkshire TV spawned the creation of Think of a Number; the reason why the scene dock doors in BBC Bristol have a chunk cut out of them; why Play Away became a more lucrative writing gig than anything the LE department had to offer; Johnny’s ill-fated sojourn to Central Television; and – and! – what went wrong on The Terry & Gaby show!

Look! Here’s a trailer!

The 10 most desperate Doctor Who stories published on RadioTimes.com since July

Posted in Posted in | No Comments »

prime
Every half-an-hour, the klaxon sounds in the RadioTimes.com offices, signalling a new Doctor Who story is required. What to do when another ‘listicle’ just isn’t enough? Bring out the spurious! Here, then, is our salute to The 10 most desperate Doctor Who stories published on RadioTimes.com since July. Yes, since July

(NB – We’re like to think Nicholas Brett typed all of these…)

 

00

1) Bless, you, Doctor Who fan, for your embeddable free content!

 

01

2) Ah, fans, keep this shit coming…

 

02

3) Don’t think we’ve mentioned Capaldi’s background since the spring, have we? So, yeah, feels revelatory again.

 

04

4) So slight a story, we can’t even think of a way to meaningfully differentiate the header from the subheader. Still, ‘Steven Moffat’ is in there – no-brainer!

 

05

5) This is great! Let’s now hope someone from – umm – Making A Murderer will say something similar.

 

06

6) A cast member tweeting about their show in broad but enthusiastic terms? Make room for that PPA award!

 

07

7) Well, no, but Brexit is HOT!

 

08

8) The keenest phrase for any headline writer: “Slightly”

 

09

9) Great. Any leads on the quality of Shaun Dingwall’s Sunday lunches?

 

10

10) Just tag it ‘Doctor Who’. It’s fine.

Join Chris, Craig and Jack in an adventure in Rosemary and Thyme (or Bramwell) as they pick over the DOCTOR WHO TV MOVIE from 1996 – on the very anniversary of its UK transmission – in fine style stopping off to hear from commentary regulars Father Lionel Fanthorpe, Michael Caine and Bob Mills (or Keith Richards) with special guest references to Patsy Byrne and Len Kabasinski: together at last! It’s the DVD version that kicks in straight off the bat. So press play from the off and enjoy some barely relevant chat that is at least half human.

                  As seen on TV: Victoria Wood

                  Posted in Posted in | 5 Comments »

                  Victoria Wood
                  Our summary of the late Victoria Wood’s TV CV…

                  NEW FACES (ATV 1974)

                  THE SUMMER SHOW (ATV 1975)
                  Victoria Wood’s telly debut was, like many of her peers, on a talent show, in her case New Faces which she more or less managed to get on because she had a mate on the production team. Her comic songs were an appealing diversion from the norm and she managed to win, though New Faces was an incredibly labyrinthine format that was more complex than the Europa League (“So, Our Kid will return at a later date to be re-assessed”) and there were shows, winners’ shows, all-winners’ shows and finals. She certainly did very well, in any case, although her appearance on the show now appears only to exist via VHS. Part of her prize was to appear with other New Faces alumni in The Summer Show, where she was part of a motley cast including Lenny Henry and Marti Caine, plus Leslie Crowther to add a bit of glamour to proceedings, and all Victoria can remember from the series is singing a version of Waltzing Matilda with Crowther where every instance of the word “waltzing” was replaced by “Walsall”.

                  THAT’S LIFE (BBC 1976)
                  One big difference between today’s talent shows and those of the past was in those days, after you won that was as far as the telly was interested and you had to sort yourself out after that. Hence Victoria was now hunting for more work and was hired by Esther Rantzen to join the rotating line-up of musicians providing comic songs about the week’s news for That’s Life. Unfortunately Victoria soon realised she hated topical comedy and couldn’t find any news stories to write funny songs about, with Esther telling her to fish out Tuesday’s Daily Express from the bin because she remembered reading something amusing in it. After a couple of weeks of that she gave up and tried to find a career that wasn’t just as Richard Stilgoe with breasts.

                  TALENT (Granada 1979)
                  NEARLY A HAPPY ENDING (Granada 1980)
                  HAPPY SINCE I MET YOU (Granada 1981)
                  After a couple of years performing and writing, Victoria finally found her niche in writing comedy plays, and after her show Talent had proven popular on stage, she was commissioned to do it on the telly, writing and appearing in it alongside her mate Julie Walters. It was shown in August 1979, fortunately for her just 24 hours before ITV started collapsing into chaos and the strike began, and was popular enough to generate a sequel the next year, then she wrote another one which she wasn’t in, but Duncan Preston was, and finally her career seemed to be taking off.

                  WOOD AND WALTERS (Granada 1981)
                  Such was her success as a writer, Granada offered Victoria her own show, which she accepted as long as Julie Walters was in it, and also she had her name in the titles. A Christmas special did well enough and a series followed, but in between the producer died, with a replacement arriving just before recording who didn’t really seem to know or like much about Victoria. In addition, when she was commissioned to write six half hours, she did exactly that, failing to realise you were supposed to write loads more so you could throw half of it away. A clueless studio audience who didn’t know what they were watching didn’t help, but there were some interesting bits in it, including a rather out-of-place but amusing monologue from Rik Mayall.

                  VICTORIA WOOD AS SEEN ON TV (BBC 1985)
                  After a few years out refining the act, Victoria was back in TV comedy but this time on the Beeb. To coincide with the show she went out on tour, billing herself as “as seen on TV”, only for the series to be put back and make her look stupid. When it finally got on air, though, it was absolutely brilliant, a fabulous mix of sketches and stand-up, the only downside being the horrible suits Victoria wears for those bits. There are loads of great bits across the two series and one special, like the daft documentaries such as Flatmates, Marjorie and Joan and, of course, probably the funniest recurring sketch on telly, Acorn Antiques. That link up there is the last one ever at Christmas 1987. We wonder why they never dropped the audience laughter from the opening titles but you get the original continuity and the Quantel-ified credits we used to love so much. Plus, TVC celebrate another all-time favourite here.

                  AN AUDIENCE WITH VICTORIA WOOD (LWT 1988)
                  For many years it used to be Victoria sketches on the Beeb and Victoria stand-up on ITV, with many of her theatre shows being televised on the light channel. This was the only time she did a proper telly show for ITV after Wood and Walters, though, for this highly memorable compendium of all her greatest hits which was then repeated and mined for clips for an eternity (and for a while was one of the few of her shows you could get in full on video). She’s got an excuse for the awful outfit in this one too because she was six months pregnant when she made it.

                  VICTORIA WOOD (BBC 1989)
                  Victoria’s first series after As Seen On TV saw her promoted to BBC1. This was a series of six one-off sitcoms which Victoria played “herself”, although the rest of the cast changed in every episode and in some of them Victoria is very much a supporting character. We enjoyed them at the time but some of them seemed a bit too much like sketches dragged out to half an hour and Victoria didn’t enjoy making them because they didn’t film them in front of an audience. The one up there is probably the best, the airport one, and despite a rather lukewarm response the Beeb didn’t seem that bothered as they repeated them a thousand times.

                  VICTORIA WOOD’S ALL DAY BREAKFAST (BBC 1992)
                  A bit more like it, this, Victoria was now a big enough star for her new show to get a Christmas Day outing. The whole thing came about when Victoria had just giving birth and spent hours and hours watching daytime telly, which she considered the perfect target for spoofery – and she managed to get in before everyone else parodied This Morning as well. The whole thing was of course just a linking device for more sketches and songs, and there were certainly plenty of nods towards As Seen On TV with the continuity announcements and a new soap, but none the worse for that. Since then Victoria’s telly work for the rest of the Cream era owed more to drama, at which she was equally adept, with great stuff like Pat and Margaret, establishing her as one of the greatest writers of her generation. Don’t forget, it may be Hamlet, but it’s got to be fun, fun, fun!

                  Creamguide(Films) rockets (!) back…to the future! with the very singularity of puzzlingly shit disaster epics: 1998’s DEEP IMPACT. Help Craig and Jack talk Chris down from a towering inferno of bafflement that has spanned two decades while they mix up Michael Biehn and Jurgen Prochnow and argue over the jelly tots on empire biscuits. There’s swearing, comedy fart noises and sheer rage in a film whose ineptitude is so big only the biggest of the big screens can do it justice.

                  Watershipdown

                  Grab your giant carrot and take to the TISWAS stage as Chris, Craig, Jack and the Easter bonnet herself Rose sit trembling at the sheer unadulterated horror that is the rabbit version of Passchendaele: WATERSHIP DOWN from 1978. Thrill to the sounds of the Barry Manilow beat as the bunnies rip each other to pieces. And a Happy Easter!
