James Rampton: Programmes such as Porridge, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em and The Good Life are repeated ad nauseam on the BBC, but the Goodies has never enjoyed those endless repeats...I wonder why?

Goody to see you again!
28 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a newsflash reports the disappearance of the Millennium Dome, it is revealed the BBC used the site as a dumping ground for sets and props from 1970s comedy shows - and this gives the Goodies the chance to look around their old office and relive some of their classic moments. This is the framing device for this one-off BBC2 special, aired over Christmas 2005, which also takes in tributes from fans including Ronni Ancona, Phill Jupitus, David Quantick, Jon Culshaw, Emma Kennedy and Rolf Harris, as well as documentary-like sections detailing the rise to fame of the three members of the team, their troubles with the BBC (dumped to make way for Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - scandalous!) and their various extra-curricular activities, including the famous incident of a viewer who died laughing at one of their shows, their pop career, what they did next and where they are now. It's a real treat for Goodies fans and offers an insight into an unjustly neglected comedy gem from more innocent times, and my advice to you is if you didn't see this, beg, steal or borrow a copy from someone who had the good sense to record it!
