Slapstick 2017 changes to programme.
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesThere has been some changes to the line up of these events.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Bill is no longer able to attend Book Shambles on Saturday at 1.20pm.  Its unknown if he still doing the Sunday morning event.  So it will be just Graeme doing Book Shambles.

Best wishes to Bill.


The full festival schedule can be found at http://www.slapstick.org.uk/.  Note that in addition to the events with the Goodies there are also events with Barry Cryer, Colin Sell, and a celebration of "The Young Ones" with Alexi Sayle, Nigel Planer & series co-writer Lise Mayer.

Here are the Goodies-related events:

1."Robin and Not Josie's Book Shambles: The Goodies
Watershed | 1.20pm | Tickets: �9.00/�6.50

The hugely popular podcast 'Robin and Josie's Book Shambles' comes to Slapstick to interrogate Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie on the books they made as two thirds of the TV comedy trio The Goodies (1970 - 1982). They'll also be talking about the making of The Goodies Disaster Movie and about the books and the authors that have inspired them.

Sadly, Josie Long is showing off in New York, but there will be a special guest co-host announced soon.

This show is now sold out.


2. Accidentally Preserved: Surviving Slapstick on 16mm
Watershed | 9.30am | Tickets: �8.00/�6.00

Slapstick comedy shorts were excellent fodder for home movie companies of the 1920s and 1930s. Kodascope and Pathescope rented or sold safety film prints for people to watch in their homes, not realising that decades later they would out-survive the 35mm versions originally in circulation. This programme contains hilarious rare slapstick shorts starring comedy stars whose work has been largely forgotten.

This event has been curated by Ben Model (silent film historian, accompanist and filmmaker) and will be hosted by Goodie Bill Oddie and Infinite Monkey Cage (Radio 4) star Robin Ince.

With live accompaniment from Guenter A. Buchwald.

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.

Goodies clips on the TV in the film
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesAccording to this article, if you see the movie "The Conjuring 2" you might spot scenes from "The Goodies" on TVs in the haunted house:
http://www.ew.com/article/2016/06/20/conjuring-2-james-wan-goodies

The Conjuring 2 director James Wan explains his love for crazy British TV show The Goodies

Posted June 20 2016 � 11:22 AM EDT

In between jumping out of their seats at the film�s supernatural shenanigans, viewers of The Conjuring 2 may find themselves pondering this question: What the hell is that crazy-looking show which keeps turning up on the television in the haunted house of director James Wan�s London-set terror tale? The answer is The Goodies. Starring Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden, and Bill Oddie, this extremely strange �70s-era U.K. series show � part sitcom, part collection of surreal sketches � was hugely popular in both Britain and in Australia, where Wan was raised.

�Oh my god, I love it,� says Wan of The Goodies. �Pretty much no Americans will have any f�ing clue what it is. But I�m hoping that all my friends over in England will crack up, knowing how big a fan I am of the Goodies. It was between the Goodies and The Young Ones. But theYoung Ones wasn�t period correct, so I had to go with the Goodies. Which is great because I love the Goodies. The Goodies and the Young Ones. How amazing were they?

Big Goody News!
more from same (The Goodies)
The GoodiesFrom The recent Network DVD newsletter!

They're Back! - BBC Announcement

The early days of our fledging label saw us rescuing Robinson Crusoe, crossing borders into Communist-state fairyland and presenting some old public information films to a baffled 21st century audience. It all looked just a bit weird on paper.

These unusual and now almost library-standard releases led us, inevitably, to ask for more of the same but we instead got The Goodies, Ripping Yarns and Till Death Us Do Part for our troubles. 

So now we are almost back where we started, having recently concluded an agreement with the BBC to revisit some of our older releases as well as bring a lot of new material to add to our range. Towards the end of the year and beyond well be releasing complete* series box sets of shows that wed distributed many years ago including 'The Goodies', 'Till Death Us Do Part' and Sykes amongst rarer fare like All Passion Spent and Johnny Jarvis, some Screen Two presentations such as The Vision, bafflingly unreleased classics like The Life And Times Of David Lloyd George and much more.

Well be sharing news on these releases with you as we work through them but youll need to be patient. There are substantial technical and clearance issues to attend to but it is underway as we write. The first titles will appear before the end of the year, hopefully sooner.



Here's a link to the newsletter!

1. On Thursday, May 12th at 12:00pm there will be a Lunch with Bill Oddie at the Sails Restaurant in Westhaven Marina, Auckland.  Here's the event description: "What better way to spend a Thursday than being regaled over lunch with tales of adventure and misadventure by Bill Oddie, former member of the frenetic British comedy trio The Goodies, now a more dignified � but still lively � presenter of BBC nature programmes. Diners enjoy a two-course meal with complimentary glass of Te Kairanga wine while overlooking the marina at the beautifully refurbished Sails Restaurant Auckland. Early booking essential."  Tickets: http://www.ticketmaster.co.nz/5-Lunch-with-Bill-Oddie-tickets/artist/2220757.

Throughout the 1970s he was one third of the hugely successful TV show The Goodies, for which he also wrote and sang several Top Ten hits. Since resolving to turn his hobby of bird-watching into a job in the 1980s, he has presented many natural history series for the BBC, including the ground-breaking live broadcasts Springwatch and Autumnwatch. After battling mental illness, he has now re-emerged as a high profile conservationist and activist.

The GoodiesTo help show the BBC and other UKTV networks. That us fans and comedy lovers really want to watch The Goodies again on TV and DVD.

with Tim Brooke-Taylor and Aimi MacDonald


Sat 23rd Jan | Watershed | 9:15AM
Tickets: �6.00/�8.00 (plus booking fee)


�At Last the 1948 Show� triggered a revolution that was destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. Bursting onto the nation�s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches, its main perpetrators were Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman and Aimi MacDonald. What �At Last the 1948 Show� began the Monty Python and The Goodies would finish in their own inimitable way. Four �lost� episodes of At last the 1948 Show have recently been recovered from the David Frost Collection. Here we offer a rare opportunity to watch excerpts from the show�s best bits and from some of the newly discovered editions followed by a Q&A as Tim and Aimi discuss this seminal comedy show on stage with presenter Chris Serle.

What better way to start your Slapstick Sunday than with a Stan & Ollie Classic? Way Out West is perhaps Laurel and Hardy�s greatest feature-length film and is being screened here in a newly restored digital print. Spike Milligan said: �From the moment I saw Laurel and Hardy on the screen I knew they were my friends� and friendship is at the heart of their 1937 spoof Western comedy, which contains their most famous song and one of the most charming dance sequences in cinema history.
