  • Summary

  • Please note: contains strong language and adult content.

    It’s 2041. The Earth is under the control of the benevolent ‘Corporation’ and time travel is not only possible but affordable for the common worker drone - sorry, person! Free with the purchase of the Timeslide 9000 machine, The Time Traveller’s Guide to Not Dying is an audio instruction manual designed to help owners choose which exciting historical moments to visit. It teaches them about where they’re going, who they will meet, and what to eat. As part of his parole agreement, Charlie Pickering anchors the guide, using his encyclopedic brain to fill us in on the places that time travel correspondents, Natasha and Toby, find themselves dispatched to. Between them, the pair of intrepid reporters storm the barricades at the French Revolution, get chatted up by JFK during the Cold War, and tried as a witch at Salem. Along the way, they try really hard to not get killed. 

    Written by Charlie Pickering, James Colley, Rob Hunter and Cait Johnson. Produced by Guesswork Television.

    Performed by Charlie Pickering, Frank Woodley, Claire Hooper, Aleisha McCormack, Damien Fotiou, Odette Joannidis, Adam Crouch, Wendy Bos, Tony Briggs, Danny McGinlay, Xavier Michaelides and Karla Arnall.

  • Ep 1: Great Ninja Turtles of The Italian Renaissance

    Jul 7 2021

    Natasha is on the luxury tour of Renaissance Italy, meeting the greatest artists, the most ruthless Popes and mighty Medicis - the fathers of capitalism. But with this explosion of creativity comes huge upheaval. Toby sees this different side to the period when he stands in a muddy field talking to miserable peasants and when he is kidnapped by mercenaries.

  • Ep 2: There’s Something About Marie

    Jul 7 2021

    We meet Marie Curie, a scientist with a glowing personality and the only person ever to win the Nobel Prize in two different sciences, physics and chemistry. Natasha crashes a date with the young Marie Skłodowska and her soon-to-be husband Pierre Curie. With no protective clothing, Toby joins the exciting hunt for radium in a poorly ventilated shed in Paris. Meanwhile, Marie stares down an enemy every bit as dangerous as radiation sickness - sexism.

    Salem, Massachusetts: The mistrial of the century. Natasha gets to experience the frenzy of Salem life as the contagion of supernatural belief takes over the community. Toby spends his time shackled in prison with the bewildered and innocent accused. We examine a grizzly age never to be repeated: one where you could be judged by your peers instantly and have no recourse or path to redemption.
