Back To The Eighties World Cup Special


Yes folks, it's that time again - the FIFA World Cup is on us again, and here at BTTE Towers we'd like to look back at the tournaments gone by in the Eighties and early Nineties to see just how much football has changed over the years, and which retro football kits Glenn needs to buy in the future. Pete from the Smorgasbored podcast is here as well, casting his expert eye on proceedings!

There's also talk of this year's competition, and our predicitions for the winners - Pete will be back after the World Cup to see how well we did!

The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 15: San Francisco, 1999


This week on the Nerva Beacon, Leigh and Glenn travel all the way back to the Earth Year 1996, to when Doctor Who came back - and it was about time! Literally!

It's the Doctor Who TV movie starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor in is, to date, only mainstream TV appearance! But how does it fare by today's standards? Did it have any influence at all on modern Who? And will we ever see Grace again? All these questions and more will be answered!

Next time, we tackle the Eighth's Big Finish ouvre. Blimey.

Episode 338 - May The Light Shine Forever


Andy from the Smorgaspod joins us again this week, but not to talk about Transformers. This time he's here to talk about another of Hasbro's Eighties projects, the Visionaries.

We'll be exploring the Spectral Knights, the Darkling Lords, all of the awesome toys and fiction, and asking why didn't Galadria and Virulina ever get toys?

The Nerva Beacon Podcast - Episode 14: The Dark Manipulator


Leigh and Glenn take a look at Sylvester McCoy's (eventual) darker take on the Doctor this week, as they traverse the choppy, clownish waters of his first season, to the even more torrid seas of the Cartmel Masterplan, and it's truly sad end.

But fear not, because there was a Byronish romantic figure waiting on the horizon...
