Our mad-for-science friend Lyn Setchell helps us to explore this 1964 black comedy political satire from Stanley Kubrick. It's probably worth noting, if you are not a Briton, that when we talk about 'pants' we are referring to underwear. We talk for far too long about tea.

We're getting in the festive mood at Schmassic Studios. While this 1950 comedy-drama isn't a Christmas film per se, it does contain a message fit for this yuletide time of year. It might attempt to put across some fuzzy feels, but is it a Classic? Find out, in the first of two episodes exploring mental health issues. What better theme could there be for Christmastime?
Pip, pip! Wordsmith and Oodsmith Chris Fosten joins us to watch and discuss this super-dark Ealing comedy from 1949 starring Dennis Price, the silky feline-voiced Joan Greenwood and Alec Guinness in eight different roles. Toodle-oo!

In this episode, serial cynic Owen is not thrilled by the prospect of watching this Howard Hawks directed screwball comedy from 1940. Can Chris, with his usual dose of hamster-faced optimism, win him over? Probably not, but since we've had Brexit and President Trump, unlikelier things have happened...
