Tim finds an old family crest, which he interprets as meaning he comes from a long line of lords. However Bill realizes it's turned the wrong way round and that it actually shows that Tim's ancestors were sheep rustlers, much to his chagrin. Meanwhile, Graeme has discovered his Scottish roots and starts spinning wild tales of his ancestors, which leads Bill to start off about his ancestors in rural England. Soon the whole thing turns into a ludicrous story about how three of their ancestors first met and got into show business. Written by E. E. Buchanan

I've just seen this unexpectedly. I remember seeing this when it was first on and haven't done so since, and i just don't know what to make of it. We're completely insulated from this sort of thing nowadays and i'd forgotten quite how things used to be back then. I can't decide what i think about this. It has a sort of innocence about it which hasn't existed for a long time now, and it may go some way towards explaining the mystery of the Goodies not being released on DVD or repeated for such a long time. On the other hand, it doesn't let 'The Black And White Minstrel Show' off what it was doing at all, so the question is one of what is a suitable subject for comedy. I sort of feel like i need therapy now. I've given this a 5 because i don't know what to think about this. Maybe that shows how out of touch we all are with our gut feelings nowadays.

I wonder what black people think about it.
