Welcome back to YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING, a podcast about British sitcoms.
Join your hosts Tony Black & Robert Turnbull as they travel back to 1999 (or maybe 1969) to discuss Arthur Mathews’ short-lived BBC sitcom, HIPPIES.
Set at the end of the 60s, featuring Simon Pegg, Sally Phillips, Julian Rhind-Tutt & Darren Boyd as an assortment of middle-class hippies running a counterculture magazine, the series confronts many of the cliches of the era – fashion, hair, festivals etc… but whether it truly manages to bring it all to life is open to question. We try and find out.
In two weeks time, join Tony & Rob as they approach the end of the world with David Renwick & Andrew Marshall’s 1982 political satire, WHOOPS APOCALYPSE!
