THE INDEPENDENT, November 8, 2000, Wednesday
Letter: Classical TV
BY: GRAEME GARDEN
Hats off to Jane Root and her innovative plans for BBC 2 (Media, 7 November). More programmes about food, gardening, art, classical music, religion, business, and the countryside. What vision! And how wise of her to donate her comedy jewels to BBC 1. No wonder she has never been happier.
No doubt she recalls that today (8 November) marks the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast on BBC 2 of The Goodies, a comedy series which tackled subjects such as food, gardening, art, classical music, religion, business and the countryside, not to mention the History of Britain, etc etc.
