But will there be chroma colour recovery for Commonwealth Games and Caught in the act...?

Will they team up to redub (ADR style) their sketches with Engelbert Humperdinck?

As it hasn't been mentioned here the actual episodes are on 12 DVDs, running time 2040min - in case anyone was worried about the number per disc.

I'm not sure about CR or any re-dubs, ( seems unlikely though) but there shouldn't be any cuts, unless there are any music issues.

I must say, the CD set sounds very good, looking forward to clean versions of "Needed" amongst others.

Mine arrived yesterday...wonderful. Nice signed card in an envelope and the whole thing came in a Goodies tote bag.

Got mine too, I should have been certified, but wasn't though, oh well!

Everyone I know agrees I should have been certified, but I'm not sure they are talking about the same thing...anyway it looks a good set.

Nice CD set, it's a shame the earlier music tracks don't seem to have survived, so no 'Needed', still a nice comp though.

I was impressed with the "Free Thinking" - not many revelations unknown to dedicated fans but an interesting and engaging listen emphasising how the episodes can be seen as satirical and progressive - perhaps overstated but thought-provoking. It can be heard or the podcast downloaded at:

Yes, a great interview. Thanks for the link since I would never have thought of going to Radio 3 to find it! I can't actually recall the last time I heard all three Goodies in the same programme.

(Incidentally, I was intrigued by the reference to Twice a Fortnight - did Germaine Greer really appear in a comedy show?)

She did, she was also a tad zany with Kenny Everett in Granada's "Nice Time".

Thoroughly enjoyed the Radio 3 Show. Particularly good on the gestation of the show via "Broaden your Mind" and the reasons for moving to ITV.

Only awkward moment was the interviewer trying to attach great significance to a clip from an old "Doctor in the House" episode that both Bill and Graeme obviously didn't have the slightest recollection of having written!

Yes she did, there's not only some audio recordings but also some surviving video where she can be seen!

That surviving footage would make a nice extra somewhere!

Or a youtube video, if a miscreant got hold of it. :o

There's also some clips from The Late Show surviving.
The best place (ignoring ownership for a moment) would have been the inComplete and Utter History box; because they had a battle of Hastings bit and "land...mine" that predates that series.

Although back to the Goodies: It seems that the new goodies box has not included some of the previous extras: commentary tracks, audio without laughter, Broaden Your Mind footage. Isn't that true?

Yes that's right, but I was always going to hold on to the comp sets anyway.

Still on series 1 at the moment though.

Thanks for pointing out the Free Thinking programme. It's a really good long interview with The Super Chaps Three and Mathew Sweet knows The Goodies well. I take it when Graeme Garden said, near the start, "shows like The Pretenders (and The Persuaders)" he meant The Protectors. It was nice, just after explaining that he wrote all the songs and music for the show, that Bill mentioned musical director Dave MacRae too; the music's great. Still just got my old video recordings collected from here and there over the years but the box set is going to be hard to resist.

Can anyone confirm if these episodes are 'as originally broadcast' or if some edits have been made due to content which most people would still feel is acceptable with a warning?

Given that they have left the Jimmy Savile jokes - and even visual appearnaces - in some of the early episodes, I would assume not.

Meanwhile, Phil Morris has found a film print of Kitten Kong, which might or might not be the lost original version.

Somewhere I read a report that a clip from Star Trek had been replaced with a picture from Doctor Who.

It's a different thing with DVD, I'm not sure I have seen any PC edits on DVD's as the buyer knows what they are getting, it just seems to affect TV broadcasts.

Having said that, saw a repeat of "The Chase" on one channel ( possibly Challenge), and the answer to one question was Jimmy Saville, clearly spoken by The Chaser.!

Speaking of edits I remember a 1990s VHS tape which included, "Scatty Safari". I remembered it well from its original transmission.

Towards the end of that episode the RH characters disappeared into an ATV studio. We saw the ATV logo and the end of the ident tune. On the VHS release this had been changed to "ITV" with a different jingle.

You could see it had just been done as it was VT superimposed onto film.

Wonder if this DVD includes the none altered version, assuming the episode is included that is?

Having watched this particular episode only yesterday, I can confirm it's the original ATV version.

Thought I'd flag up these reviews of "The Goodies" which a friend pointed out to me earlier today:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... abMFO91LX-

They're lovely and brisk, good on cultural context, clear about the highs and lows of each episode (and why)... and of the ones that I've sampled so far, I find myself generally in accord with these views and rather delighted that somebody's (generally) having so much enjoyment by revisiting a show which was clearly something very dear to them earlier in their life.

All the best

Nice to hear another edition of the Goodies Podcast... and even nicer that it's one of my favourite episodes: "The Movies".

https://goodiespodcast.libsyn.com/

Also sounds like Jeff and Steve are planning some sort of global viewing for the show's 50th anniversary on 8 November.

All the best

Oh - and just been listening to the latest edition of the Goodies podcast at https://goodiespodcast.libsyn.com/ and for those who enjoy the show and are on Twitter there's been a 'tweet-along' branded #Goodies50 organised for next weekend:

https://twitter.com/goodiespodcast/stat ... 7223938049

Don't know if this is of interest, but I thought I'd flag it up in case it was and anyone wanted to join in.

All the best

Speaking to Don Smith on Saturday, there is an article in the Radio Times published this Tuesday. The online article ties up with that.

I heard the trandem story earlier this year when I interviewed Don, but hadn't seen the photo of the bike with the buckled wheel before (or. at least, not noticed it was buckled!) It must have come down with quite a thump.

Oh brilliant! Nice one Steve! :)

It's always good to see Don's photos being printed... and it was lovely to see "The Goodies" back in the "Radio Times" this week.

No Radio Times Bookazine then?...bit disappointing, especially with all those Don Smith photos.
