Bill Oddie issues a plea to keep the painting "Monarch of the Glen" in Scotland
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesReal life mirrors a Goodies episode as Bill Oddie issues a plea to keep the painting "Monarch of the Glen" in Scotland - this article appears online at http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/bill-oddies-plea-keep-iconic-9203856

Bill Oddie pleas to keep iconic painting in Scotland as artwork heads to auction

BILL Oddie has issued a plea to the people of Scotland to help keep the famous Monarch of the Glen painting in Scotland.

Bill Oddie pleas to keep iconic painting in Scotland as artwork heads to auction

BY CRAIG MCDONALD

BILL Oddie has issued a plea to the people of Scotland to help keep the famous Monarch of the Glen painting in Scotland.

   

Monarch of the Glen painting by Sir Edwin Landseer in 1851

He once declared it his favourite painting during a sketch in The Goodies.

And although Bill Oddie admits his tongue was firmly in his cheek, the comic turned conservationist is keen to see Sir Edwin Landseers Monarch of the Glen stay in Scotland.

Drinks firm Diageo, who own the painting, say they are ready to sell it. And it is feared the 10million price tag will lead to the Monarch leaving the country.

The painting featured in an episode of The Goodies in 1971 in which Oddie refused to pay off debt by flogging it to rich Americans despite describing it as a cow standing on top of a hill with big twigs stuck to its head.

The famous artwork has been on loan to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh for the past 17 years.
Oddie, 75, yesterday said he hoped a Scottish landowner would thwart potential foreign buyers.

He said: Monarch of the Glen must be one of the most successful paintings in history.

The thought of it going abroad is sad you cant tell me there arent some wealthy estate-owning Scots who couldnt afford to buy it.

It would be nice if it could stay in Scotland or the UK. There arent many paintings which are almost like the national picture.

Its bad enough when any important works go abroad but when its something as iconic as this it would be even worse.

And there is a bit of money in those Scottish glens. The landed gentry in particular could afford it, Im sure.

Recalling the Goodies episode, Oddie joked: Its one of those which I have tried to blank out but I do remember it as set in an art fair.

I described Monarch of the Glen as my favourite painting although Im sure it probably wasnt.

A painting of a cow with sticks attached to its head. It is quite a good line actually Im quite proud of that line.

Oddie gained huge fame in the 70s as one of comic trio The Goodies alongside Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden.

He later became a hugely popular presenter on Springwatch and Autumnwatch, the BBCs long-running wildlife series. He was devastated when told in 2008 he wouldnt be asked to do any more of the shows.

The rejection sent Oddie, who had a history of depression, into a downward spiral and he admits he spent much of the year that followed in bed.

He tried to take his own life twice before finally being diagnosed as having bipolar disorder.

He said: I did have a couple of problems a few years ago but Ive recovered and have had no troubles for ages. Thankfully, Im fine now.

Bill Oddie to appear in BBC One show "The Real Marigold Hotel"
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesThis story appears at http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/entertainment/news/lionel-blair-and-bill-oddie-checking-in-to-the-real-marigold-hotel-35182054.html

Lionel Blair and Bill Oddie checking in to The Real Marigold Hotel

The Real Marigold Hotel is returning for a second series, and moving to BBC One after being a surprise hit for BBC Two earlier this year.

Lionel Blair, Bill Oddie and Amanda Barrie are among the stars jetting to India for a second series of The Real Marigold Hotel.

The programme, based on the 2012 film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, was a surprise hit for the BBC when it aired earlier this year (16), with Miriam Margolyes and Wayne Sleep two of eight celebrity pensioners sent to explore whether or not they could enjoy a better retirement life in Jaipur.

The BBC Two show attracted more than four million viewers, and became the channel's most popular factual show of 2016 to date.

Now the programme is being recommissioned for a second, four-part series, and being moved to BBC One, with entertainer Lionel, presenter Bill and actress Amanda being joined by actor Paul Nicholas, singer Sheila Ferguson, Dr Miriam Stoppard, snooker player Dennis Taylor and television cook Rustie Lee as they travel to Kochi, South West India.

Charlotte Moore, content boss for the BBC, said in a statement: "The first series was a big hit that connected with viewers in a really heart-warming way. It was entertaining whilst enlightening, celebrating a universal subject

Im looking forward to watching our new cast of characters reach an ever broader audience on BBC One."

And BBC Two editor Patrick Holland insisted the show moving to BBC One will give them more of an opportunity to commission new programmes.

"Who would have thought that a show about retirement would become such a hit with audiences young and old?" he said. "Moving to BBC One means we have space to commission new series like Second Chance Summer, and Life and Death in a Week."

Four cast members from this year's series will be returning to BBC Two, however, for a two-part Christmas special, in which they will travel to Japan and Florida to see how the retirement communities there differ from those in the U.K.
