The Goodies

missing Goodies mock ad found!

ABC Researcher extraordinaire John Williams has found another piece of missing footage from "The Goodies" (John is the one who recovered the censored "Commonwealth Games" footage).  He's kindly provided the following information about the newly discovered clip,"Dreaded Wheat":

This 30 second clip from the second series episode 'The Lost Tribe' is a parody of a breakfast cereal advertisement [I believe that it might have been for the UK product Shredded Wheat, I'm sure that Andrew Pixley could identify the exact advertisement satirised - I think that we had a similar ad here in Australia many years ago] that features a young mother sees off her husband & son as they leave for work & school, the commercial's jingle refers to the "men in her life" which suddenly grows from two (referring to the husband & child) to a long procession of males (beginning with the milkman) running into & out of the house (in fastmo). It ends with a slightly disheveled young mother in the front doorway being embraced by an amorous Tim Brooke Taylor, the door slams shut.

The item was compiled along with other Goodies material (including the 'Commonwealth Games' cuts) and was listed by the National Archives Of Australia as being from the episode 'Pollution'. I did not recall this piece of footage from various episodes that I had seen, including the episode 'Pollution'.  I sent a copy of the DVD to Andrew Pixley to review just in case there was anything on it that might not be accounted for. Thankfully, Andrew's expertise has helped identify yet another missing piece of Goodies footage by checking BBC paperwork to identify the 'Dreaded Wheat' clip. The episode of origin for the clip was positively identified as being 'The Lost Tribe'.
