"An Audience With The Goodies" available from Amazon Prime US & UK
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesFor fans in the US and the UK, 2018's "An Audience with The Goodies" is available for rental or purchase from Amazon Prime Video.  Here is the description from Amazon's website:

The Goodies - An Audience With The Goodies
In 1970, The Goodies unleashed their legendary blend of surreal storylines, strikingly topical satire, slapstick and lunacy, making household names of creators, writers and performers Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor. An Audience with The Goodies reunites Tim, Bill and Graeme on stage for a very special one-night-only event, recorded in June 2018 at the Leicester Square Theatre.

Network Distributing reportedly has gone into liquidation.
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesWe are very sorry to hear that Network Distributing, the company that released the UK Goodies DVDs, has reportedly ceased trading and gone into liquidation.  Network was incredibly supportive of "The Goodies" and its fans, even seeking input from The Goodies Rule - OK! Fan Club about which episodes the fans most wanted to see on Network's early "best of" Goodies episode collections.  The company went to great lengths to obtain the rights to eventually release all available Goodies episodes (despite often difficult issues with obtaining clearances).  Thank you to everyone at Network for your support of The Goodies and other archive film & television shows.

interview: Kenton Hall, author of "The Goodies" Pods and Monsters"
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesThe Goodies Rule - OK! Fan Club is pleased to present an interview with Kenton Hall, author of Chinbeard Books' second Goodies novella, "The Goodies: Pods and Monsters" (available for pre-order now from https://www.chinbeardbooks.com/apps/webstore/products/show/8264419).

1. How did you become involved in writing the novella?
I’ve worked on a number of projects for Chinbeard Books, and Barnaby (Chief Beard) knew I was an aficionado of all things comedy. I was honoured to help out with a couple of jokes and some editing on the first book “Avengers Dissemble” so I was thrilled to get a chance to tackle one of my own.

2. Were you a fan of The Goodies work (their TV or radio shows) prior to becoming involved in this project?
I’m Canadian, but I’ve always been obsessed with comedy, particularly British sketch comedy. I grew up on cassettes of I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again. I deep dove into Python, Goodies and pretty much everything connected to that era. To paraphrase Ringo Starr, they look large in my legend.

3. Have you met any of The Goodies?
I haven’t yet had the pleasure, although Graeme does have input on the books, which is astonishing enough. Knowing Graeme, Bill and Tim’s wife Christine support the books makes the experience much more exciting. I would love to meet Graeme and Bill though, just putting that out into the universe.

4. Was it intimidating to try to write a book in the Goodies' style?
Trying to live up to the quality is certainly nerve-wracking. But they had such an influence on my own style, it’s about making it recognisably The Goodies while also making it my own. With comedy you can only write what you think is funny and hope other people will feel the same.

5. How nervous are you about the fans' reaction to your work?
Well, I AM a fan, so that’s the only preliminary test I can run. Obviously, you want fans to like it, you want any reader to like it, but you can’t have that in your head when you’re writing. You have to go with your gut.

6. What other projects have you worked on that we might know?
Well, there’s the comic memoir, Bisection about living and parenting with bipolar disorder. That’s my most personal book and I’m confident it has more jokes per page than any other book about mental health. I also co-wrote Getting Better: The Fight for the NHS for Audible, starring Rhod Gilbert. And I wrote and directed the film “A Dozen Summers” on Netflix. There’s a lot of other stuff and some very exciting things in the works. I’d recommend buying the Goodies book first and then one of mine.

RIP Jim Franklin
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesWe are saddened to share the news that Jim Franklin, who directed many Goodies episodes, passed away in August 2021 after a long illness.  In a 2020 interview in honor of "The Goodies" 50th ​‌anniversary, Graeme Garden said, "Jim was a brilliant film editor, with a real feel for comedy. He cut the film sequences in the first series, then became director for the second series onward. He was meticulous in his preparation and drew detailed storyboards, which ensured that all the gags worked as intended, and also saved an awful lot of time and money. We admired him greatly and were very fond of him."  The Radio Times article (https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/comedy/goodies-50th-anniversary-graeme-garden-interview/ ) goes on to say "Franklin and his amazing outdoor sequences had a lot to do with The Goodies' success at Montreux television festival, winning the Silver Rose in 1972 for the legendary Kitten Kong episode, and again in 1975 for the homage-packed story, The Movies."

Our thanks to Henri Phillipps and Ben Rohde for finding this article about Jim's passing: https://euroweeklynews.com/2021/09/24/james-jim-lyford-franklin-october-18-1934-august-11-2021/

2nd Goodies novella available for pre-order
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesThe second Goodies novella from Chinbeard Books is now available for pre-order.  Join the team again for another Goodies-authorized adventure, with a forward by Robin Ince (and all sales benefitting a charity in honor of the late Tim Brooke-Taylor).

From the official product description:

"These are dark times for the BBC.
Unceremoniously axed by the new Prime Minister, it has been forced from the airwaves at the very moment it is most needed.

For there is a mystery afoot that threatens the very fabric of the nation or, at least, of Tim’s waistcoat.

A missing sherbet heiress. A mysterious chalk outline. A bilingual rodent with a secret past.

Oh, and a brand new true crime podcast just waiting to take the country by storm.

That’s right.

The Goodies are on the air and on the case ."

You can pre-order here: https://www.chinbeardbooks.com/apps/webstore/products/show/8264419
