This is our Everest, Part Twenty-Five - Out of Town

EToday's bucolic episode of This Is Our Everest sees Edward and Ian watch an episode of Out Of Town. There's some extremely questionable and troubling content about the annual Appleby Horse Fair and then a sheep orgy, all of which leaves at least one of our heroes feeling particularly sullied.But while Jack Hargreaves queries the sexual morality of the ewe, Ian is more worried about issues of consent and the general propriety of the whole sheep industrial complex. None of this is a problem for Edward, who lives in a make-believe Richard Scarry world and probably thinks the sheep live in houses and bake gingerbread men.Meanwhile, Jack meets some members of the travelling community and learns nothing, something he is seemingly keen to pass along. Luckily, Ian is on hand to set the record straight. Was Jack Hargreaves' house double glazed? Why was his shed so echoey? And why have we strapped an oil crayon onto Ian's chest with a leather harness? Some or none of these questions will be answered in the next 40 minutes.

EIn an ironic twist, today's episode of This Is Our Everest (not sponsored by Just Juice) is both the first to feature any basketball at all and also the episode least likely to appeal to basketball fans. However, Edward has a perfectly reasonable defence and Ian has been watching the 1985 NBA finals instead so couldn't care less either way. There's good news for Canada, bad news for Telford and a chiding for Leicester's lack of ambition.How believable is Tom Cruise as an American Football player?

EOn today's This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian provide exactly the service the world needs: two more middle-aged white men talking about racism. Yes, it's The Black and White Minstrel show, a truly despicable relic of a past we'd all hoped was firmly behind us, however reluctant it was to leave. Neither of our heroes particularly like the programme but it did give them a chance to properly examine their prejudices and assess a totemic cultural phenomenon that is often cited but rarely actually seen.Thankfully, they did also find some time to address other hot button topics such as Keith Harris' skill as a ventriloquist, a surefire way to prevent the robot uprising and an honest review of drum brushes. Now, let's never speak of this again. If you want to watch and see what all the fuss was about, and we advise you spare yourself the bother quite frankly, you can do so here.Tomorrow we're going for something a little more... progressive, in the form of Going For Gold, the pan-European quiz show which hinted at a future of pan continental harmony that never quite arrived.There’s a bunch of different ways in which you can subscribe to the 200% podcast.

EOn today's This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian get into a festive mood to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Pebble Mill, by watching Pebble Mill At 10. This is not, as Edward thought, a racy after-hours version of the BBC's venerable lunchtime magazine show but rather a shambling birthday party complete with a car rally, parrots and a really, really old 71-year old woman.Aided and abetted by two of their favourite Teds - Heath and Bovis - our heroes, now rapidly reaching the point of no return with their stupid project, celebrate the TV and Radio Act 1972 and all its unforeseen consequences, explain the difference between Idi Amin and Donald Trump and bask in the brief but always welcome glow of a pep talk from Clare Rayner. Will the harrier jump jet arrive on time? Whatever happened to the other Everly Brother? And was it a mistake to give the planet Racism access to a teleportation device? Some or all of these questions may be answered.

EOn today's This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian take a jaunty trip back to World War 2, with Wartime Kitchen and Garden. Ian finds it difficult to see the appeal in yet another British thing crowing on about the war and isn't even swayed by a plate of dried apple rings. Indeed, there's even the risk that programmes like this one are going to spoil the war for him entirely.Nevertheless, some important ground is covered: having already accurately described a pig, Ian learns about pig clubs and busts some common misconceptions about incest. Edward drops some egg science and attempts to find new ways to address toilet paper shortages. All of this, plus biltong, onions and a general reassessment of life in the early 1940s.

EOn today's This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian have been invited to Southern Television's Houseparty, a cursed daytime TV discussion show that leaves one of our heroes absolutely foaming at the mouth. Meanwhile, Ian provides another potted history about an ITV franchise and we assess the right way to lose with grace and step aside with dignity, somehow without mentioning Donald Trump once.Richard Stilgoe makes an appearance, rattling the keys but doesn't stick around for the party, most of which is taken up by anchovies, sewing machines and corporal punishment.

This is our Everest, Part Eighteen - Wartime Kitchen & Garden

This is our Everest, Part Seventeen - Houseparty

EOn today's This Is Our Everest, Edward and Ian have been invited to Southern Television's Houseparty, a cursed daytime TV discussion show that leaves one of our heroes absolutely foaming at the mouth. Meanwhile, Ian provides another potted history about an ITV franchise and we assess the right way to lose with grace and step aside with dignity, somehow without mentioning Donald Trump once.Richard Stilgoe makes an appearance, rattling the keys but doesn't stick around for the party, most of which is taken up by anchovies, sewing machines and corporal punishment. If you'd also like to put in a fleeting appearance at the Houseparty, you can find it here.Tomorrow's edition of This is our Everest is an episode of Channel Four's Wartime Kitchen & Garden.There’s a bunch of different ways in which you can subscribe to the 200% podcast.
