An Audience with THE GOODIES DVD


No of discs: 1. Comedy. Colour. Running Time: almost 2 hours of content.

Cast: Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie & Graeme Garden in conversation with Stewart Lee and Dick Fiddy.

In 1970, The Goodies unleashed their legendary blend of surreal storylines, strikingly topical satire, slapstick and general lunacy on an unsuspecting public. Capturing the irreverent and rebellious flavour of the decade, this phenomenally popular, award-winning series spread its mischief over twelve years, making household names of creators, writers & performers Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor. An Audience with The Goodies reunited Tim, Bill and Graeme on stage for a very special, unrepeatable, one-night-only event, recorded in June 2018 at the Leicester Square Theatre. Talking to writer/comedian Stewart Lee and writer/archive television expert Dick Fiddy, the three Goodies gather together in front of a live audience to discuss their career and the enduring popularity of the series – as well as taking questions!

The Goodies Book of Criminal Recordings

Paperback Book. 511 Pages. Written by archive television historian Andrew Pixley.

An episode-by-episode analysis of the entire Goodies output, including their ITV series and an index covering commercial recordings and other endeavours.

Three silly people who met at university, discovered a shared love for gibbons, black pudding and giant kittens, became The Goodies. From 1970 to 1982, the trio made dozens of highly-rated TV shows in which they did anything, anytime, from fending off black pudding with bagpipes to fighting giant incarnations of The Magic Roundabout. The verbal jokes rivalled the clever comedy of The Cambridge Footlights, combined with a rich seam of visual humour, elaborate gags with giant props, physically impossible stunts, cartoons and slapstick. There was music too, with a string of chart hits. Who can forget The Funky Gibbon?! The Goodies were totally original, never emulated since.  

The three met while undergraduates at Cambridge. Contemporaries with Graham Chapman, John Cleese and Eric Idle, all three Goodies became members of the Cambridge University Footlights Club in the early 60s. They were also cast members of the radio comedy show I’m Sorry, I’ll Read That Again, and took part in At Last the 1948 Show as well as other TV and radio shows. The original Goodies television series ran from November 1970 to February 1980, created by Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie, and originally co-written by all three, with Oddie providing the music.
