Hamburger3, Thanks for the "heads up". I hope these are the ones made by the Beeb and not the LWT ones.

I can hardly wait to see the Kitten Kong, Scons/Scones, String and Ekee thump episodes again.

Pure genius

This has also been reported (and discussed) on the official goodies website www.goodiesruleok.com

And don't forget the classic pirate radio episode (let's all hum A Walk in the Black Forest), and the disco and punk episodes.

Classics all!

It Might As Well Be String was always my fave, but I'd love the above mentioned to come out on DVD. And some decent commentaries? And the MCC vs. Rollerball!

O God, please let it be true pleasepleaseplease.

And 13 poxes on Jane Root (controller of BBC2) for not showing a single episode for the 30th anniversary in 2000.

I can't believe I missed this piece of information from last year!!

It;s about time the BBC released something on the Goodies. There would be a market for season releases, I'm sure, but for some reason the BBC won't have anything to do with the Goodies. No one really knows why [or if they do, they're not letting on ].

This will replace my two videos that are really beginning to wear out. The videos always get good prices on eBay, especially the ITV one which regularly hits Ł30 plus.

Thanks for the good[ie] news.

Boink!

And the latest on extras:

Blackstar Video is now listing the following extras for the forthcoming Goodies DVD (http://www.blackstar.co.uk/video/item/7000000077816): "Storyboards. Out-takes. Surviving 'Broaden Your Mind' footage. Commentaries (episodes 3, 4 and 6). Laughter-free track on 'The Goodies and the Beanstalk'. Digital restoration feature." I believe the commentaries will be on the episodes "Kitten Kong", "The Goodies and the Beanstalk", and "Lighthouse Keeping Loonies"

As a kid I thought this was the best show ever.

Not sure if I would like it now?

There was a piece in the Evening Standard last week about this.
Quote:
With their giant cat demolishing the Post Office Tower, and their Funky Gibbon dance song, they provided some of Seventies TV's most memorable comic moments.
But while other comedies from the time have been endlessly repeated, the surreal exploits of The Goodies have languished in a BBC archive ever since. Not only has the corporation refused to ever re-run the show, it has even been reluctant to sell it in the shops
Quote:
Tim Brooke-Taylor suspects the controller of BBC2, Jane Root, dislikes the show. "I'm told that every time someone runs the idea of repeating it past her, she just vetoes it -- I've no idea why."
However, a BBC spokeswoman said: "Jane has nothing against The Goodies. But she wants to keep repeats to a minimum, and we have no plans to re-run it at present.
The reason why this DVD is out is with eth help of an independant distibutor who bought the rights from the BBC, the trio are re-releasing the show themselves.

And about time too!!!

Why isn't this ever shown on UK Gold??

Haven't seen it in over 20 years - loved it as a kid, can barely remember most of it now.

Because UK Gold should change their name to UK Recent.

True!! It's pretty bad how they show films like Rush Hour as well. Neither UK nor Gold!!

They do show some older comedy stuff occasionally like Some Mothers Do Ave Em and Porridge, but they really should show some of the other classics like the Goodies and Dear John.

It *was* repeated on UK Gold, but that must have been 10 years ago, now.

She's having a laugh, isn't she? How many times have we seen The Good Life on BBC2 now? And that's just one example. Repeats are a good thing, but not the same stuff over and over again. Repeat something else for a change. Variety is the spice of repeats. Or something.
