Intrepid pop-culture archaeologist Jon is on a mission, hunting gems for his treasuRETROve of the world’s most unintentionally ingenious films and telly, to save them from being lost to the ravages of time and good taste. Daring to venture where most movie fans fear to tread, Jon’s your guide on a video odyssey into the unexpected, lifting the lid on the 20th century’s most incredible artistic achievements (of a sort), and uncovering their lesser-known but special magic. Jon’s an award-winning writer/producer, (credits include Have I Got News For You, Only Connect, Time Trumpet). 'Deserves quotes.' (Andy Hamilton).
