Back To The Future

"I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet... But your kids are going to love it"

One of the all-time greats finally arrives on Betamax - and we go all the way back to 1985 to revisit a lot of people's favourite movie. Due to poor planning it's not episode 88, but better early than late. Joining me in the podcasting Delorean is Beano cartoonist Andy Fanton.

The Goonies

"HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!"

Welcome to the biggest adventure on Betamax so far as I'm joined by two guests for the first time, Doug and Elly from the newish podcast Doug and Elly Watch Telly. They were surprisingly gentle with a movie that a lot of people will count as their favourite.

Three Amigos!

"You dirt-eating piece of slime! You scum-sucking pig! You son of a motherless goat!"

We travel back in time to a golden age of cinema this week, as the infamous Graham Sibley returns for another film with an exclamation mark (after Airplane!, while Goal! does get mentioned...).

Pretty In Pink

"His name is Blane? Oh! That's a major appliance, that's not a name!"

We remain in the classics section this time with one of the defining movies of the era, featuring the first lady of 80s cinema Molly Ringwald.

Joining me at the prom is The Telegraph's arts and entertainment editor Anita Singh - she even has a copy of the novelisation with the original ending so clearly an authority on the topic. She also suggests a very interesting companion film at the end...

Thanks again for the ongoing support

Top Gun

"The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."

One of the great 80s movies gets the Betamax treatment as I'm joined in the cockpit by broadcaster Simon London - we play a little volleyball, lose that lovin' feeling and enjoy some sweet Kenny Loggins.

Moonstruck

"In time you'll drop dead and I'll come to your funeral in a red dress!"

Welcome back for a rare Oscar winning movie (three gongs) and a long overdue return for the fabulous Catrin Lowe. Again, I'd never seen the movie beforehand... But, Cher, Nicolas Cage, Frasier's dad, what more could you ask for?

Real Genius

"I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

 

Welcome back to campus as I'm joined by the author Jenny Colgan as we explore science, nerd culture and Val Kilmer... We talk about the film and then move onto a bit about how we consume movies (and music) these days, sounding very old at why people don't make mixtapes anymore.

Robocop

"I'd buy that for a dollar!"

One of my favourite movies gets the Betamax treatment for the special 75th episode, with this delicious tale of corporate greed, graphic cop murder and cyborg technology.

Joining me in the executive bathroom of OCP is author James Montague, fresh from his appearance on The Running Man episode to talk about his new book 1312: Among The Ultras

"Are you a lesbian?"

 

Apologies for the slight delay with this. Time to explore what the New York Times called "That Madonna Movie"... Joining me to seek Susan is Absolute Radio royalty Claire Sturgess, returning to talk about dancing with Terence Trent D'arby, New York City and amnesia.

 

Coming soon, a bevy of 80s classics - Robocop, Real Genius and Moonstruck...
