The Goodies: The Complete BBC Collection released September 24th

The Goodies
The Goodies: The Complete BBC Collection is coming to DVD in two months, and they’re coming for you, and you and you…

In 1970, The Goodies unleashed their legendary blend of surreal storylines, strikingly topical satire, slapstick and general lunacy on an unsuspecting viewing 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 and performers Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor, the latter two are frequent contributors to Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue.

Until now, we didn’t have any clue when we’d see the full set of BBC Goodies on DVD, but now the time has come!

From a giant white fluffy kitten called Twinkle to a slippery climb up a giant beanstalk, from the ancient Lancastrian art of ‘Ecky Thump to fighting a ban on fun instigated by an all-too-real puppet government, this is television comedy at its undeniable best!

Now, for the first time ever, Network Distributing are bundling all 69 episodes and specials the terrific trio made during their ten year run at the BBC into one gargantuan box set – for many episodes this will be their DVD debut!

There’s also the superb extras, An Audience with The Goodies, which was recorded in June 2018, and this one-night-only event saw Tim, Graeme and Bill reunited on stage to discuss their career, the enduring popularity of the series and welcome questions from their most devoted fans.

We’re really looking forward to reviewing this boxset, and hopefully will be doing an unboxing of it, too, as this is going to be a sure-fire must-have this Christmas!

Running time: 2040 mins approx
Box-set includes:

  • All eight BBC series of the classic show
  • Six BBC specials – Kitten Kong – Montreux ’72, A Collection of Goodies, Goodies Travelling Instant Five Minute Christmas, Superstar, The Goodies and the Beanstalk, The Goodies Rule – O.K.?
  • An Audience with The Goodies – recorded in June 2018 at the Leicester Square Theatre, this very special one-night-only event saw Tim, Bill and Graeme reunite on stage to talk about their career and the enduring popularity of the series.
