Back to the Eighties - Episode 342 - Aliens in the Attic

As we looked at Predator last time, we thought it would be rude not to look at the other side of the AvP equation! So here's a sideways look at the 1986 James Cameron sequel to Alien - Aliens!

Joining me this week is the amazing Amy Walker from the Eccentric Earth podcast, which you should all check out, and not just because I'm on it sometimes.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 341 - If It Bleeds, We Can Podcast About It

Duncan from Stacebob and the Dweebs joins us this week to talk about one of his favourite movies - and let's face it, it's probably one of yours, too. From 1987, it's John McTiernan's whimsical tale of an alien coming to Earth and trying to make friends with a military unit who just doesn't want to know, and it's chopper obssessed commander who sounds suspiciously too Austrian, and who enjoys mud packs of an evening.

Well that's how I saw it.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 340 - A Pair of Fucking Women's Knickers

Jenny from the World of Crap joins us again this week, this time to talk about some of the more forgotten cartoons of the Eighties and early Nineties. You know, things like The Perishers. Poddington Peas. The Shoe People. That kind of thing. They existed. They happened. And hardly anyone ever nostalgises about them. 

Until now.

Also? Jenny, I told you this would be the title. Told you.

Back to the Eighties - 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!

Back to the Eighties - 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.

Back to the Eighties - 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?

Back to the Eighties - 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...
