The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 29: Don't Go Up In The Attic!


It's off to the Roaring Twenties in this episode, as Leigh and Glenn take a look at one of the historicals of the JNT era, as the Doctor and his companions take part in a mystery involving intrigue, danger, mistaken identity and...cricket. It's Black Orchid, everybody!

They also review the first two episodes of season 12 - are they any good?

Episode 392: A New Hope Appears!


It's our first episode proper of 2020, and we start off with a movie that wasn't out in the Eighties, but it certainly shaped the decade to come. We called it Star Wars, but now it's Episode IV: A New Hope!

So please join Andy from the Smorgaspod and myself, as we try to explain just why this (and the Star Wars franchise as a whole) was so important to us when we were growing up.

Back to the Eighties New Year's Special: Ghostbusters 2


It's very nearly 2020, and our last episode of 2019 concerns a movie that sits nicely in Chlimbo, as it's set over Christmas AND New Years!

Yes folks, it's Ghostbusters 2, that much maligned 1989 sequel to 1984's Ghosbusters. Joining me to talk all about it, from the Smorgaspod, it's our old friend Andy!

Happy New Year to all our listeners, and we'll see you all in 2020!

Back to the Eighties Christmas Special 2019


It's Chriiiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaaaaas! And joining us for this year's special is Dan, he of the Spacebook and Type 40 fame, to talk about 80s Christmasses, what we did, what we got, and what we watched, back in that rose-tinted decade when we grew up.

As Our Lord Shaky observed, "Merry Christmas, Everyone".

Episode 390 - The Worst Worst Witch?


Amy and Kirsty are back, and Kirsty's picked out something spooky again! Well, not actually spooky, but it's certainly supernatural. Well, not *actually* supernatural, but it's got Tim Curry in it, and isn't that reason enough to do anything?

From 1986, it's Central's The Worst Witch!
