The Goodies

FW: ISIRTA album on CD / boxset of Network DVD releases
27/09/2010 22:32 GMT

Posted by lisa

Thanks to Andrew Williams for the following news items!

1. Andrew has spotted an Amazon listing which appears to be a box set of the four Network DVD Goodies sets - the three that have previously been released plus the new set that will be released November 8th.

Here is the product description from Amazon, which HAS NOT been verified with Network:

"In 1970, the Goodies unleashed their legendary blend of surreal sketches, strikingly topical satire, slapstick and general lunacy on an unsuspecting viewing public. Capturing the irreverent and rebellious flavour of the decade, this phenomenally popular, BAFTA-nominated series spread its mischief over twelve years, nine series and numerous specials, making household names of creators, writers and performers Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor. This special box set contains 32 hilarious episodes (including the full LWT series) - from a giant white fluffy kitten called Twinkle to a slippery climb up a giant beanstalk, from the ancient Lancastrian art of Ecky Thump to fighting a ban on fun instigated by an all-too-real puppet government, this is television comedy at its undeniable best. This set includes four extensive booklets on the making of these shows by archive television historian Andrew Pixley, alongside a number of special features on the LWT set." 

2. Also from Amazon's website is a reissue of one of the original "I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again" albums by BBC Audiobooks:  The CD, scheduled for release on 3 Feb 2011, is described as "a facsimile edition of the original 1978 LP of comedy sketches and songs, starring Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graeme Garden, David Hatch, Jo Kendall and Bill Oddie. Taken from the fondly-remembered BBC radio series of the early 1970s, this title features the original artwork and sleeve notes, plus a vinyl-look CD."

If it is correct that this is the 1978 ISIRTA album, that would make it the one released by BBC Records (as opposed to the 1967 Parlophone ISIRTA LP).  The BBC album included the tracks:  Opening Credits, Full Frontal Radio, Prune Manifesto, Buffers, Critics, Motoring Flash, Quickie, Honours List, News In Welsh, Minority Programmes, Home This Afternoon A Go Go, News Flash, Listening to the Flowers, Opening, Talent Contest, Eddie Waring Impersonation, Sick Manís Blues, and Taming of the Shrew & Closing Credits.

Details about both ISIRTA LPs (as well as pictures of their covers) can be seen at [url][\url]

That doesn't add up, have they snuck another episode on one of the LWT discs, I only count 31.

Perhaps they just assumed there were 4 DVD's, 8 episodes each etc, not remembering LWT only had 7 episodes?
