The Goodies

RIP Jim Franklin

We 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/

Jim directed and produced so many great episodes including my favourite the Goodies and the Beanstalk! It's very sad to hear of his passing. I remember reading about some of his work on the series in The Goodies Rule OK book by Robert Ross. Rest in Peace
