Timothy Hope, desperate to impress the beautiful but disdainful Lady Misericordia, stows away on Lord Daunt's expedition to the North Pole, and finds himself caught up in an adventure of high seas, deep crevasses, slavering wolves, reindeer sleigh rides and much, much more, with only his wits and inventiveness to keep him and his friends alive.
The Remainders gang (myself, Finbar Hawkins & Jon Millington) have had a few sketches featured on Tilt, a BBC Radio 7 sketch show - so, finally got that credit on a BBC radio comedy show. My work here is done. I think the most recent show is available on listen again, still, but this is the show's page, which might prove slightly longer lived than any Listen Again link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7/comedy/progpages/tilt.shtml
It's the show that's big, not the giraffe. This was a short series of tiny animated interstitials for Nickelodeon in the UK. Originally it was going to be a chat show hosted by a Giraffe in a Spacestation (although no one can remember why) but then he had as guests a pair of Goldfish with astronomical IQs and minimal attention spans and they took over.
For every programme that makes it to air, there are many that die on the way, whether strangled at birth, brutally murdered along the way or eventually euthanised to put the audience out of their misery. It is these programmes that are the Remainders of radio broadcasting.
For a couple of years or so I contributed a column to Internet World magazine. It was a 'sideways' look at the web industry which mostly consisted of me finding the funnier news stories of the month and poking fun at them.
And also sneaking in gratuitous William Shatner references in every column. Well, it amused me.
