One more Goodies Episode Summary has been revised on the GROK website since last month's newsletter was published – "Playgirl Club".
 
 
 
WEBSITE POLLS
 
Last month's poll result was a resounding win to "Wild Thing" for the choice of songs from the "Goodies Rule OK' special, though it's a slightly disturbing thought that there are 17 people out there that would prefer to listen to Rolf than to something by The Goodies. Job lot for the funny farm methinks!

Honours for broadcaster Jenni Murray and Goodies star Tim Brooke Taylor 
Published on Saturday 11 June 2011 03:03
 
BARNSLEY-born broadcaster Jenni Murray said her only regret at being made a Dame was her parents are not alive to see it.
 
Murray, who has hosted Radio 4's Woman's Hour for more than 20 years, said she hoped her mother would be "looking down in delight" when she collects her honour at the palace for services to radio broadcasting.
 
Jenni, 60, who attended Barnsley Girls High School, said: "My one regret about this is I lost my parents four years ago, they died within a short time of each other, and my mother would have been demented with joy.
 
"It is strange how things are never quite as thrilling when you don't have your parents to share it with. You realise everything you have striven for is to make your parents proud of you."
 
Murray, who now divides her time between homes in London and the Peak District, was awarded an OBE in 1999.
 
Peak District-born comedy actor and writer Tim Brooke Taylor meanwhile receives an OBE for services to light entertainment.
 
The 70-year-old former member of The Goodies, from Buxton, said: "I'm very pleased and not to say a little surprised. At first I thought it was my son trying to con me!"
 
He and fellow former Goodie Graeme Garden said they were thrilled to be given OBEs - after spending years poking fun at the honours system.
 
Brooke-Taylor said: "Graeme used to say it would be better to be an Earl and an OBE - then you could be an 'earlobe'."
 
He added he was relieved to know Garden received an OBE at the same time, to avoid awkward phone calls. "I was wondering, 'How am I going to say this?'," he joked.
(Lisa Manekofsky – 14th Jun)
 
 
* An extract from an article at:
 
Comedian Graeme Garden gave himself a gong in an episode of hit 1970s show The Goodies and now he has a real one.
 
Mr Garden, 68, from Enstone, near Chipping Norton, now has an OBE, for services to light entertainment.
 
He lives with his wife Emma and the couple have a son Tom, 26.
 
Mr Garden, who is in the middle of recording a new series of the Radio 4 show Sorry, I Haven't A Clue, also has a son and a daughter from his first marriage.
 
He said: "This is a great honour. When The Goodies was on, I awarded myself an OBE on one of the shows to tease Bill Oddie, who had been recognised for his wildlife work, so it's great to finally get a real one."
 
Mr Garden, who suffered heart problems several years ago, gives talks to help fundraising efforts for the Oxford Heart Centre.
(Lisa Manekofsky – 14th Jun)
 
 
* The Honours List is mentioned on BBC Radio's Today Show 11 June 2011 edition (available on the BBC iPlayer at http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b011ttf3/Today_11_06_2011/ )
 
A link to the phone interview with Graeme, which is the final two minutes of the show, was posted separately over the weekend. However, there are other passing mentions of Tim and Graeme among the awardees (in segments starting at about 8 minutes 54 seconds and 1 hour 9 minutes into the show). Starting at 1 hour 24 minutes not only are Tim & Graeme mentioned, but short clips are played from "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" and "The Goodies" and there is a brief comment from Graeme.

Tim Brooke-Taylor speaks about being awarded an OBE
11:50am Tue 21st Jun 11:: written by Francis Batt
 
Funny man Tim Brooke-Taylor of Cookham is celebrating after being awarded an OBE in the Queen's birthday honours list.
 
The star of cult TV show The Goodies is still a regular on radio's I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.
 
He said he found himself keeping a big secret from an old friend when he learned he had been awarded the OBE. The 70-year-old has worked with his old Cambridge Footlights pal Graeme Garden for almost 50 years. They made up two thirds of television's long running Goodies show with Bill Oddie.
 
Graeme received notice that he had been awarded an OBE at exactly the same time as Tim. But Tim said: "The trouble was neither of us knew whether or not the other had got one, so we didn't dare speak to each other in case.
 
"I only found out he had got one too when a newspaper asked me 'how do you feel about Graeme'? "
 
Neither needed to worry about the third member of the Goodies team Bill Oddie - he got his OBE in 2003, having forged a new career as a celebrated naturalogist whose television shows have introduced the nation to the joys of bird watching.
 
Tim is married to Christine and they have two sons Ben and Edward.
 
Tim is president of the Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP) and acts as quiz master at the annual Thames Valley Pub Quiz Championship organised by the Maidenhead Thames Rotary Club.

GOOD TIDINGS FROM TIMBO AND GRAYBOOTS (OBE)
 
Tim and Graeme have sent messages regarding the announcement of their being awarded OBEs.
 
* From Tim: "Please pass on my thanks to all the GROK folk who have been so kind in their remarks re the OBEs. They genuinely came as a huge, but lovely, surprise."
 
* From Graeme: "Please thank all the GROK chums for the good wishes they sent on our recent award of the OBEs. And thanks for all their support over the years. It means a lot to us."

WE ARE THE LADS OF THE MCC …
 
Thanks to the Goodies Podcast and Saucy Gibbon for this news. The extract below is from an article that appears online on the Banbury Guardian website at http://www.banburyguardian.co.uk/news/local/hospice_bowled_over_by_support_1_2758300
 
Hospice bowled over by support
Published on Friday 10 June 2011 08:51
 
FAMOUS faces from the world of cricket and television will come together for a fundraising cricket match on behalf of Katharine House Hospice.
 
On June 26, internationally-renowned cricketers Neal Radford, Neil Smith, Graham Rose and Devon Malcolm will be joined fellow celebrities - yet to be revealed - for a charity cricket match at Enstone Sports and Social Club.
 
The event, which has been organised by The Lord's Taverners Thames Valley Region, will be hosted by Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden of former television series The Goodies, with Star Trek's Sir Patrick Stewart also making a special appearance. Sarah Brennan, community fundraiser for the hospice, said: "We are really excited about this fundraiser.
 
"The Goodies are renowned for their hilarious mad-cap comedy and this, combined with the presence of so many household names, should be the perfect recipe for a great day's entertainment.
(Lisa Manekofsky – 25th Jun)
 
 
* There's a nice photo of Tim and Graeme with Patrick Stewart at the recent charity cricket match on the Chipping Norton website at http://www.chippingnorton.net/index2.html  At the time I am writing this, this article (titled "It's two Goodies to be true for hospice") is the sixth story from the top of the page (note that further down the page is an article about Graeme getting his OBE, with a photo from a few years ago):

Description:
 
Tim Brooke-Taylor has been delighting audiences with his gentle, zany humour ever since he rocketed from the Cambridge Footlights into West End stardom trading custard pies with John Cleese and one-liners with Bill Oddie in the hugely successful Cambridge Circus revue. That was only the start of a sparkling career which includes the long-running TV series The Goodies, BBC Radio's I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again in which he starred with Cleese and the "antidote to panel games" I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, now in its 39th year, appearing in countless stage productions and writing a few books. Those are just a few of the subjects this much-loved performer will be covering in conversation with the broadcast journalist Chris Serle. Given time Tim will also tell us how he directed Orson Welles in a film, helped Sevvy Ballesteros with his golf swing, appeared as Victor Meldrew's neighbour in One Foot in the Grave and much, much more. You'll have the chance to put your own questions to Tim at the end. Join Tim Brooke-Taylor in conversation with Chris Serle at ...

I'M SORRY I HAVEN'T A CLUE (ISIHAC) and
I'M SORRY I'LL READ THAT AGAIN (ISIRTA)
 
* These are the links for the latest restored ISIRTA episodes that have been uploaded to Rapidshare, with huge thanks to Kimba W Lion:
 
 
 
 
I didn't catalog the cuts in this week's broadcast, but it seems to me most of them involved Graeme.
 
As I said last week, I do not have a complete Christmas 1969 show, the next one chronologically, so I won't be posting that. The numerous BBC7 repeats over the years are as complete as what I have.
 
And it appears (based on past performance) that the Beeb has no problem presenting complete episodes from ISIRTA series 8, so what we get from Radio 4 Extra over the next few months should be as good as it gets. (Plus, 6 of the 13 episodes have been available on tape and CD for a long time.)
 
I hope folks have enjoyed my ISIRTA shows. I've done my best to make sure they were as complete as possible and sound as good as possible.
(Kimba W Lion – 28th Jun)
 
 
* The 55th series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" begins on BBC Radio 4 next Monday, 27 January at 6:30pm. Each episode will be repeated at noon on the Sunday after broadcast.
Here's a listing for the first episode from the new series:
"The 55th series of Radio 4's multi award-winning antidote to panel games promises more quality, desk-based entertainment for all the family, as the series starts its run in front of an audience of 2,500 at Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall. Regulars Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor are joined on the panel by special guest Marcus Brigstocke, with Jack Dee as the programme's reluctant chairman. Regular listeners will know to expect inspired nonsense, pointless revelry and Colin Sell at the piano."
(22nd Jun)
 
 
* For the ISIHAC fans, there's a nice interview with Barry Cryer in the Kent
(25th Jun)
 
 
* The first episode in the 55th series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" gets its first broadcast at 6:30pm UK time today. The show can be heard online from the BBC Radio 4 website (www.bbc.co.uk/radio4 ); it will be available on the BBC iPlayer about an hour after broadcast.

Here's the Listen Again link for today's new episode of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue":
(28th Jun)
 
 
"I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue Volume 13" was recently released - the title is available as a 2CD set and also as a digital download. This collection is the first Clue title to feature Jack Dee as Chair.
Here's a product description from Amazon.co.uk's website (at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Im-Sorry-Havent-Clue-Audio/dp/140842729X/ ):
 
"This thirteenth collection of the antidote to panel games finds Jack Dee giving regular panellists, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden silly things to do - along with special guests Jeremy Hardy, Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and David Mitchell. It includes highlights such as 'Uxbridge English Dictionary', 'One Song to the Tune of Another', 'Sound Charades', 'Historical Voicemail', 'Bankers' Film Club', 'Sound Effects Storytime', 'Party Guests', '84 Chicken Cross Road', 'Trail of the Lonesome Pun', 'Greetings Cards', 'Unseen Prequels' and, of course, 'Mornington Crescent'. So get ready to laugh out loud as the gang indulge in more wonderful wordplay, accompanied by Colin Sell on the piano and the lovely Samantha, who's always ready for a quick score. Four more extended episodes from the award-winning BBC Radio 4 series specially compiled by producer Jon Naismith. "Risky, rude, brilliantly written and superbly performed". (The Judges, Sony Radio Academy Awards)."
