At Last the 1948 Show Revisted Cert:PG
with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Aimi MacDonald


Sat 23rd Jan | Watershed | 9:15AM
Tickets: �6.00/�8.00 (plus booking fee)


�At Last the 1948 Show� triggered a revolution that was destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. Bursting onto the nation�s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches, its main perpetrators were Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Aimi MacDonald. What �At Last the 1948 Show� began the Monty Python and The Goodies would finish in their own inimitable way. Four �lost� episodes of At last the 1948 Show have recently been recovered from the David Frost Collection. Here we offer a rare opportunity to watch excerpts from the show�s best bits and from some of the newly discovered editions followed by a Q&A as Tim and Aimi discuss this seminal comedy show on stage with presenter Chris Serle.

introduced by Bill Oddie


Sun 24th Jan | Watershed | 9:15AM
Tickets: �6.00/�8.00 (plus booking fee)


What better way to start your Slapstick Sunday than with a Stan & Ollie Classic? Way Out West is perhaps Laurel and Hardy�s greatest feature-length film and is being screened here in a newly restored digital print. Spike Milligan said: �From the moment I saw Laurel and Hardy on the screen I knew they were my friends� and friendship is at the heart of their 1937 spoof Western comedy, which contains their most famous song and one of the most charming dance sequences in cinema history. Laurel &Hardy admirer and Goodie Bill Oddie introduces.

BBC 'snubs' The Goodies again - Bill Oddie's fury
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesBill Oddie has attacked the BBC for not putting The Goodies on to the BBC Store.

The corporation has just made more than 7,000 hours of its archive available to buy on the digital store but not the classic 1970s show he made with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden.

Oddie told the Times: Surprised wouldnt be the word. Weve come to expect rejection. We dont understand why.

And he added the show wasnt given the same status as other classic comedies within the Corporation. You put on Dads Army and, with respect, even Python has been repeated a million times, he said. Weve hardly been repeated at all. So somebody must hate it.

The team have regularly complained that the BBC never repeats the programme, which marks its 45th anniversary this year.

Brooke-Taylor has previously said: We are cross. The programmes are still regularly aired in Australia and the show is still massive, over all ages. So we do know that it still appeals. Thats whats frustrating. If they showed a few and people said thats rubbish, wed accept that. Its the fact that its not given the chance.

And Garden said: Weve never known the real reason they wont show us, because whenever weve asked about repeats weve been given a different story.

Of the decision not to include The Goodies on iPlayer, the BBC says it has more than 2.5 million programmes and could not put them all on at once - but would add The Goodies to the store as soon as we possibly can.

Previously Goodies DVDs have been released under licence by the independent label Network, rather than via the BBCs commercial arm.

Website Hello everyone! As regular visitors to this website would be aware of.  That this front page hasn't been updated in well, just under a year.  This has been due busy work loads and family issues of the main runners of the fan club (Zaphod and Lisa (but brett still does a grand job with the Goodies crosswords every so often )). 

So until Lisa can comeback, I will be taking care of the News items here and keeping things up to date.
