They have a segment where the contestants ride a bike to control the speed of a record player and they have to identify the song being played.
The bike tonight was a trandem and one of the songs was The Goodies theme!.:-)

(I&J – 10th Jun)
 
 
TIM SPOTTINGS
 
* Thanks to Jenny Gibbon for finding this news and jeffers for posting it in the GROK forums: http://www.comedy.co.uk/news/story/00000316/frankie_howerd_1948_show_missing_believed_wiped/
from the article:
"Dick Fiddy, TV consultant at the BFI, says that a private collector is to thank for the recovery of a missing edition of At Last The 1948 Show (pictured), one of the sketch shows that lead almost directly to the creation of Monty Python's Flying Circus...
All but two episodes of At Last The 1948 Show were destroyed in the late 1960s - a show now considered very important in British comedy history as its stars included John Cleese, Marty Feldman, Graham Chapman and Tim Brooke-Taylor, all of whom would go on to be huge stars.
Mr Fiddy said: "The 1948 Show episode plugs yet another gap in what has become the most successful rebuilding project of the entire Missing Believed Wiped initiative. Material has come back from Sweden, Australia, industry personnel and private collectors to rebuild the once-thought-lost programme. This latest retrieval is a near-complete episode which can be restored with the help of an existing clip of one of the two missing sketches and an audio recording of the other."
Both items will be shown later this year at a Missing Believed Wiped special event at BFI Southbank."
(3rd Jun)
 
 
* Network DVD has announced a release of all surviving episodes of the Yorkshire TV version of the hit radio show "Hello Cheeky" starring Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Junkin and Barry Cryer:

* www.gemm.com  have multiple Hello Cheeky LPs for sale.
(Alison Bean – 6th Jun)
 
 
forthcoming new comedy series for Australia's Seven Network. Here's a cut & paste from the Spy Report article:
 
New comedy series for Seven
The Seven Network has signed stand-up comedian, Tim 'Rosso' Ross, to host a new comedy series, Australia Versus.
The new pop culture series, will pit Australian comedians against their British and American rivals in talking up cultural differences, The Sunday Telegraph reports.
Featured local celebrities will include Peter Berner, Peter Helliar, Fiona O'Loughlin, Greig Pickhaver and Rebel Wilson, along with internationally renowned Tim Brooke-Taylor, Pauly Shore and English funnymen Hale and Pace.
Ross told the newspaper that his new program would ultimately be a strong comedy showcase:
"It's just comedians being funny. There are so many talking heads on TV who are not funny. I loved it, as it was a great premise for the comedians – not just the Aussies, but the Poms and Americans.
"Some of the debates are ridiculous - who's got the sexiest starlet, Sophie Monk v Keira Knightley? - but it's a great premise for jokes.
"The music stuff is great, with some uneven contests - Can Khe Sanh really take on (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction?"
The program is expected to premiere later this year.
(7th Jun)
 
 
NEWS FROM TIM & GRAEME
 
Tim and Graeme have sent along the following bits of news.
 
As mentioned yesterday, Tim will be appearing in a new Australian series called "Australia Versus" in which comedians from America, England, and Australia take on each other (more details at http://www.goodiesruleok.com/news.php?cod=1405 ). Tim explained that his brief appearance in the show was filmed "in a cellar in the UK", where he was interviewed by some nice Brits. Tim said he answered questions and "batted for Britain"; as he hasn't seen what the other comedians said he doesn't know who "won". Guess he'll have to wait for the finished show like the rest of us to see how he did (we'll be rooting for you, Tim!)
 
Graeme said the recording for the BBC Radio 4 "Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere" documentary last month was very good and fun, too. He explained that Ross Noble, the presenter, "was given a list of questions for the documentary but we just kept drifting off topic and chatting about the shows." 
 
In other radio news, "The Unbelievable Truth", which is produced by Graeme and Jon Naismith's Random Productions, will be recording an episode at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. Graeme won't be appearing on the panel, but will be along as script editor.
 
Graeme also reports that he and Tim, along with the rest of the "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" team, are hoping to do a short tour at the end of the year. No details are available as yet.
 
Thanks for the info, guys!

Finally, thank you to all who came to the wonderful Memorial Concert for Humph on Sunday 25th April. I received many lovely emails from people who were there and enjoyed it. It was a terrific celebration of the great man. If you didn't make it - don't despair. The show was recorded for Radio 4 (broadcast date TBC) and will be released in full on CD in due course. All money raised to go towards the Humph Trust, devoted to supporting and encouraging young jazz musicians.
