The Jack Docherty Show – Father Ted – tape 2475

This tape starts with The Jack Docherty Show already in progress, talking to the seemingly ubiquitous Rowland Rivron.

After the break, though, the real reason for taping this episode, as Jack interviews Douglas Adams. He’s there to talk about Starship Titanic, the adventure game he created at his company The Digital Village, where I worked for a few years, until it was consumed by the dot-com bust and I fled to the BBC. I never worked on the game itself, although I was a beta tester briefly, and my name is in the ‘thanks’ section of the credits.

After this, recording switches to Father Ted for the episode Chirpy Burpy Cheap Sheep. There’s a monster menacing sheep. The fear has affected the champion sheep, and Ted has put a bet on him. And Father Jack has a brief moment of peace.

Father Jack at peace

The whole episode is available on All4.

After this, an episode of Frasier. Frasier’s dad is going to propose to his girlfriend, and the boys aren’t happy.

Next, King of the Hill. This episode is Jumpin’ Crack Bass (It’s a Gas, Gas, Gas).

Then, an episode of The Adam and Joe Show, featuring Toytrainspotting, making it the first ever episode.

Then, the recording ends during an episode of TFI Friday. Underneath, Channel 5 are showing ESPN, during which the tape finishes.
