Easter Leftovers (Castaway 2000)

Tickets for The Xennial Dome's Little Dome - Live at Machynlleth Comedy Festival on 5th May 2024 are available here.


I like doing a Leftovers episode because I get to change the image. It's another look back at some of the bits and bobs which Gareth Gwynn and Esyllt Sears failed to find time for in previous episodes. There's a whole section from January 2000 about the BBC's analogue answer to Big Brother, Castaway 2000. We've also got mentions of education secretary Kenneth Baker from February 1989 and a story about zoo animals which has nothing to do with February 2005.
