WELCOMES
(by Lisa Manekofsky)
 
We're very pleased to welcome the newest addition to the club committee - Dawn (aka wackywales). The committee is the international group of volunteer staff who keep the club running (designing & maintaining the website, editing the newsletter, managing our t-shirt sales, etc.) We're delighted to have Dawn join us in this labor of love!
 
We'd also like to extend a hearty welcome to all the new members who have joined the club recently (we're just about to pass the 4,300 member mark!) We hope you're enjoying everything we have to offer, such as the website, mailing list, and newsletter. Please don't hesitate to make suggestions, contributions, or just join the friendly folks in the forums - that's what makes the club fun for all of us!
 
 
GROK MERCHANDISE CLEARANCE
 
Please note that new items have been added to our selected Goodies club t-shirts clearing sale.
 
Full details are available at http://www.goodiesruleok.com/tshirts.php  
 
 
WEBSITE POLLS
 
The final count is through for the April website poll and in a lower than usual turnout, sense has unfortunately triumphed narrowly over silliness (though thankfully both triumphed over Rolf this month for a change!) The final vote tally was:
 
What merchandise should The Goodies be selling on their current UK tour (which runs through April 18th)?
 
- the new "The Complete LWT Series" DVD      48 votes
- "T' Secret Of Ecky Thump" training video         44 votes
- Little Rolf cuddly toys                                       33 votes
- Goodies Rule - OK! Fan Club t-shirts              21 votes
- lemon sherbet (with free video monitor)            19 votes
- tomato sauce squirters for bunfighting               16 votes
- Nicholas Parsons masks                                  13 votes
- an Eskimo phrase book (ah here's one!)             5 votes
- other                                                                 4 votes
- Snooze antidote (for Max Bygraves shows)       1 vote
Total                                                               204 votes
 
This month's poll is a interesting question that we've probably all wondered about at some stage, so head to the website and cast your vote. You know it makes sense!
 
If The Goodies tv show was still in production, which topic should they send up? (Use the comments feature to make additional suggestions.)

The 5-Minute Interview: Bill Oddie, TV presenter, writer and conservationist
 
'I blame Bush (for Iraq) but at least he's an honest idiot'
 
Published: 28 April 2007
 
Oddie, 65, fronts Honeytastic Habitats, a campaign to make gardens bee friendly.
 
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
   At home playing my guitar or playing new CDs.
 
A phrase I use far too often is...
   The F word. I use it counter-productively. If I complain on the phone and say it, they put the phone down.
 
I wish people would take more notice of...
   Wildlife. Appreciating the role of bees, for example . Without pollination we wouldn't have flowers.
 
The most surprising thing that ever happened to me was...
   Having a nervous breakdown. I had no idea I was susceptible.
 
A common misperception of me is...
   That I am a jolly, beer-drinking man. I hate excessive drinking.
 
I'm not a politician but...
   I wouldn't have invaded Iraq if I had been. I blame Bush, but at least he's an honest idiot. Blair has done so much damage to the image of telling the truth in politics.
 
I'm good at...
   Taking in the big picture on an issue.
 
But I'm very bad at...
   Practising anything.
 
The ideal night out is...
   Going out with my wife Laura, my daughters Kate and Bonnie, and we would go to hear my other daughter Rosie and her band playing at a club.
 
In moments of weakness I...
   Buy some new records.
 
You know me as a television presenter, but what I might have been is...
   A musician or a warden at a bird observatory.
 
The best age to be is...
   Mid thirties. You've acquired some skills and still got the energy to indulge them.

The following article about the first episode in the new series appears on the Guardian's website at http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/organgrinder/2007/04/new_radio_4_panel_showunbeliev.html

....Unbelievably: a new Radio 4 Panel Show
By Ben Dowell / Radio 10:20am
Last night Radio 4 showcased its new kids on the panel show block - the show Unbelievable Truth hosted by David Mitchell and featuring a crop of young comedians including Marcus Brigstocke and Tony Hawks. Did you like it? Do you think it will give old favourites such as Just a Minute and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue a run for their money?
I say old favourites, but the show was devised by panel show veterans Graeme Garden and Jon Naismith, long standing panellist and producer respectively of the anarchic R4 show I'm Sorry I haven't a Clue. But what was different about this show was that it appeared (at last) to be trying to give the young pups a panel show platform, something that may even last the decades that "Clue" and "Just a Minute" has been entertaining Radio 4 listeners.
Personally I thought it was a neat, if limited premise, ably performed by last night's panel of Frankie Boyle, Tony Hawks and Marcus Brigstocke (who seems to have a permanent berth on the station these days, though he's probably not as ubiquitous as Peep Show's David Mitchell).
The premise, in case you didn't catch it, sees each panellist deliver a lecture on a given topic (Elizabeth I, Cats, The Human Body, Morris Dancing..anything really), which must be entirely untrue, except for five unlikely facts... The job of their opponents is to challenge if they think they've detected an item of truth. Panellists lined up for this first series include Graeme Garden, Alan Davies, Jo Brand, Jeremy Hardy, Clive Anderson, Tony Hawks, Neil Mullarkey, Sandi Toksvig, and Marcus Brigstocke.
As I say, I thought it worked well. Mitchell was an assured and witty host. But there is a danger that the format, even with the entertaining asides, could feel a bit samey after a while. Clue is all over the place (joyously so) and Just a Minute (in which panellists have to keep talking on a subject without repetition or deviation for 60 seconds) may be a simple format but it benefits from the fact that the hothouse of each minute keeps all of the contestants on their toes, even when panellists such as Paul Merton are engaging in their fantastically absurdist flights of fancy.
Unbelievable Truth meandered a bit, maybe not enough, and it seemed a little too obvious to me to detect when they were lying and telling the truth.
But it's new. And shouldn't be strangled at birth. And at least comedy on Radio 4 is looking to the future - and away from the dark days of five or so years ago when all those 11.30pm programmes almost made one lose the will to live. And this could bed in nicely. Anyway. Enough 'Ands' from me. Over to you
(25th Apr)
 
 
* Congratulations to the team behind the most recent "Giles Wemmbley Hogg" series, including Graeme Garden, for winning Silver in the 2007 Sony Radio Academy Awards Comedy category. The series, entitled "Giles Wemmbley Hogg Geht Zum FussballWeltmeisterschaft Weg!" was written by Marcus Brogstocke & Jeremy Salsby with additional material by Graeme.
Here's a blurb about the show from the judges, taken from http://www.radioawards.org/winners07/win07.htm : "Brilliantly scripted and characterised, this programme was funny from the very start. The judges noted the skill with which the writers incorporated highly topical references, and they warmed to this well-meaning but useless idiot."
Also of note - according to the 27 April 2007 edition of the BBC 7 newsletter, their repeats of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" (featuring Tim & Graeme) ranked at number 6 in the Listen Again BBC radio figures for March 2007! I'm sure the fan club members contributed to that success. :)
(30th Apr)
 
 
* Mondays starting, 7 May - "Bromwell High", an animated series in which Graeme voices one of the characters, begins on TV2 in NZ on 11.25pm (info at http://tvnz.co.nz/view/page/413551/1105553 )
(6th May)
 
 
* Fri 11 May and Sun, 20 May - "Have I Got 2002 For You". Graeme's 2002 appearance on "Have I Got News For You" will be repeated on UKTV Gold at 01:50 and then shown an hour later on UKTV Gold Plus 1 each of these days.
(6th May)
 
 
TIM SPOTTINGS
 
* Another article about Tim from yesterday's Eastbourne Herald.
 
Eastbourne Herald
April 26, 2007
HEADLINE: Reunion for Tim of The Goodies
 
TIM BROOKE-TAYLOR renewed friendship links formed more than 45 years ago when he was in Eastbourne to appear at the Congress Theatre with Graeme Garden in The Goodies Still Rule OK!
Tim and retired Eastbourne solicitor Christopher Metcalfe met at Pembroke College, Cambridge, when they were both members of the college drama society, The Pembroke Players.
"Pembroke Players toured Germany with As You Like It, playing twice a day at some 20 venues. Later Tim and I separately joined the famous Footlights Club in 1961," Christopher said.
"Tim was a year behind me at university. His talents flourished in the Footlights and the year after I left he became president.
"Tim, John Cleese, Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Graham Chapman and others performed in a revue, Cambridge Circus, in 1963 which transferred to the West End and eventually to Broadway."
Tim Brooke-Taylor went on to appear in Me and My Girl, At Last the 1948 Show and more than 90 Goodies programmes.
He has recently completed the 25th series of I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.
Although their paths divided - Christopher studied law and only recently returned to the stage with Eastbourne Operatic and Dramatic Society - they have remained friends.
During Tim's stay in Eastbourne, the two friends did lots of catching up and Tim Brooke-Taylor was interested to hear that EODS celebrates its centenary this year.
"I wish the society the very best of luck and success with its productions during 2007," said Tim.

I'M SORRY I'LL READ THAT AGAIN (ISIRTA)

* "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Vol. 10" is scheduled to be released in the UK on May 7th. 
Amazon.co.uk shows the cover (which features a new design compared to volumes 1-9), plus this description of the 2-CD set:
"Four compilations of the hugely popular and award-winning BBC Radio 4 series. 'Risky, rude, brilliantly written and superbly performed' - "The Judges", Sony Radio Academy Awards. Inspired nonsense and pointless revelry - it's time for another helping of the antidote to panel games, "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue". In this tenth collection, the gang return for further moments of mayhem, puns and one-liners; not forgetting a healthy dose of innuendo and double entendre. Regulars: Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer and Graeme Garden - and special guests are given silly things to do by chairman Humphrey Lyttelton. So join Humph and company in these perennial favourites: New Definitions, Swanee Kazoo, One Song to the Tune of Another, Sound Charades and last, but certainly not least, Mornington Crescent. Other exciting rounds include Just a Minim, Swankers and 84 Chicken Cross Road.
With the lovely Samantha, bringing up the rear with her laser display board, this compilation is especially for you, Mrs. Trellis of North Wales."
(20th Apr)
 
 
* The club has learned that "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue 10" will be available from digital retailers as well as in shops; this is good news for our non-UK members who don't wish to order the title from overseas (though vendors such as www.Amazon.co.uk  will ship it internationally). 
ISIHAC Volume 10 will be published by BBC Audiobooks on 7 May 2007.
Estimated running time is 2 hour 35 minutes on 2 CDs. 
The CD ISBN is: 9781405677738
The Download ISBN is: 9781405667036
I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue 10 will be available from all good bookshops, online at www.bbcshop.com or by BBC Audiobooks direct mail on 0800 136 919
This title is also available to purchase as a download from digital retailers such as Audible, Audioville, iTunes, Mediabay, 7 Digital, Simply Audiobooks, Spoken Network, TuneTribe, Plays on the Net and Wippit.
(25th Apr)
 
 
* Here's another update about "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue 10", which is due to be released on May 7th (as a 2 CD set in the UK and as a download available from many digital retailers).  Besides the regular panelists (Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Barry Cryer) the set will include contributions from guest panelists Jeremy Hardy, Ross Noble, Andy Hamilton and Rob Brydon.
(1st May)
 
 
* For anyone who missed it at the bottom of the tour announcement message, the new series of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" will start on BBC Radio 4 (online at www.bbc.co.uk/radio4 ) on Monday 4th June at 1830. This is the week after "The Unbelievable Truth", the series devised by Graeme and ISIHAC Producer Jon Naismith, finishes its six-episode run.
(2nd May)
 
 
ISIHAC CD RELEASE
 
"I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue 10", the latest BBC Audiobooks release from the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy panel show, was released on May 7th. As was mentioned in news postings to the club, Chairman Humphrey Lyttelton and regular panelists Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Barry Cryer are joined in this edition by guests Jeremy Hardy, Ross Noble, Andy Hamilton and Rob Brydon. 
 
The first things I noticed about the Volume 10 are a welcome update to the cover (the previous design has been used since at least 1998 – see http://mysite.verizon.net/vze7yes3/illustratedguides/radio_shows.html#isihac ) and that the running time was longer than for previous sets. At 2 hours 25 minutes, ISIHAC 10 packs in an additional 20+ minutes of material; the set is certainly chock full of laughs. Personal highlights for me are multiple examples of Humph having difficulty getting through his lines as he breaks up with laughter (such as during "Humph's Handy Hints for the Ladies"); this often prompts amusing ad libs from the panelists (and big laughs from the audience). I was also pleased that the set includes an example of the amazing song stylings of Rob Brydon (that man can sing!) plus the hilarious DIY Sci Fi round from a recent edition of the show. 
 
There are too many rounds to list here, but rest assured there are plenty of favorites (such as Uxbridge English Dictionary, One Song to the Tune of Another, Sound Charades, Swankers, Word for Word and, of course, Mornington Crescent) as well as fun one-time games like Russian Roulette and Cat Glass Pudding.
 
As has been mentioned previously, ISIHAC 10 is available as a 2-CD set in UK shops, by mail order from internet vendors such as www.amazon.co.uk, and for purchase as a digital download from many digital retailers such as Audible, Audioville, iTunes, Mediabay, 7 Digital, Simply Audiobooks, Spoken Network, TuneTribe, Plays on the Net and Wippit.
 
 
ISIHAC TOUR INFORMATION
 
From the ISIHAC mailing list:
 
Please find below a list of dates and venues for a short (10 date) tour of "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue" in August, September and October this year.
 
Not all the venues have their tickets on sale yet, though one (The Assembly Hall Theatre Tunbridge Wells) has very nearly sold out as they have sent out a brochure.
 
Apologies to those in the far North, far West, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland - this is just a little tour and we've deliberately booked venues that keep travelling to a minimum for the teams. If all goes well, the plan is to mount a longer tour in 2008 which we hope will be more extensive.
 
The show is called "I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue - The Official Stage Tour" and will be a kind of 'best of' show, featuring favourite rounds from the past 35 years. The guest panellist will be Jeremy Hardy. The show will not be recorded for broadcast on Radio 4.

5. GOODIES WORD PUZZLE
**************************
(by Brett Allender)
 
Here's something a little different to the usual Word Finders and Crosswords which have been part of the C&G in recent months.
 
This puzzle consists of a series of Goodies clues to solve, with the highlighted letter (in brackets) from each horizontal answer forming a vertical solution, which happens to be a phrase of Tim's from the episode "Punky Business" The information to solve the clues can be found in my Goodies Episode Summaries in the Articles section of the website if there are episodes listed that you are unfamiliar with.
 
The solution will be published in the June edition of the C&G. Alternatively there is a copy of the puzzle (in Word format) and solution on the website at: http://www.goodiesruleok.com/articles.php?id=98
