The Goodies

"The Goodies: Super Chaps Three" by Andrew Pixley
29/09/2010 17:28 GMT

Posted by lisa

As many of you know, television historian Andrew Pixley has been working on a book about "The Goodies" for over a decade.  The meticulously researched book is tentatively scheduled for release in early November.  It will be published by the archival television preservation society Kaleidoscope to raise funds for themselves and the RNLI.

Here is a blurb about the book from Andrew himself: "The Goodies: Super Chaps Three is an appreciation of "The Goodies" and a look at the professional careers of Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie up to 1982 when the last new episode of the series aired.  Running to 600 pages, the text traces themes and patterns in their earlier work (e.g. "That Was The Week That Was", "BBC3", "At Last the 1948 Show", "Twice a Fortnight", "Broaden Your Mind", "Hark at Barker", "How Late It Is") and then covers the period of "The Goodies" in detail with reference to the show's production, the media coverage, the spin-offs and other projects which the trio undertook at the same time. The legacy of "The Goodies" is then looked at before the appendices offer production details, contextual comments, music listings and merchandise details."

Andrew says that the book will be available for ordering online.  We'll let you know when we have details about price and when they'll being taking orders.

Surely this'll be the closest we'll ever get to a one-stop-shop of essential Goodies information. Can't wait for this book, as it'll probably answer almost every question I've ever had about the Goodies episodes. Top stuff.
