    Are these the guys who did Markets of Britain? I love that one.

    Thanks, Xeni….  Theni.

  3. Thanks BoingBoing, Thoing-oing.

  4. I loved Look Around You, they got the vibe of those 70′s UK educational films exactly, including the music. In fact, if you like the music, you could do worse than listen to The Advisory Circle’s album As The Crow Flies, as reviewed here (with clips): http://bothbarson.wordpress.com/2011/08/02/the-advisory-circle-as-the-crow-flies/
    Other releases on Ghost Box as well. Lovely stuff!

    Ten years, yet we still don’t know what birds are.

  6. Wonderful show, but there’s nothing ‘amazing’ about Jonathan Ross.

    I will *never* forget the first time I saw an episode of Look Around You… I felt like I did when I saw Fight Club at the cinema the first time.

    “What the fuck did I just watch?”

      A biology teacher of mine played it during one class, we thought we were in for the most boring educational video ever, until about two minutes in when it clicked.
