The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 14th November 2014

Tonight Chris Aikman, the glue that holds this whole mess together, had to skedaddle before the Film Guide started tonight. This meant that Danny and Simon literally had no idea about the names of any films, actors or directors, and the show descended into a bit of a farce (although it always has a farcical quality to it, it managed to take it to a whole new level).

Their inability to decipher each others film clues (e.g. "That bloke with the hair and the face is really good in that thing with the woman with the arms and legs, where they go to that place and solves that thing where the other bloke did something he shouldn't.") eventually made Simon cry with frustration. Danny chose to show his frustration by sticking drawing pins into his left arm and chasing Fluffy, the building's caretaker, around the floors with a stick of butter. All of this went out on air. Award-winning stuff, I think you'll agree.

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk vaguely about the UK box office top 10, the new releases at the cinema and his pick of films on free-to-air TV for the coming week.
