Australian newspapers The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have run articles about the discovery of footage which had been censored from episodes of "The Goodies" during their 1970's broadcasts on the ABC. While it's great to have feature newspaper articles about The Goodies, especially
ones including extensive quotes from Tim, Graeme, and Bill, the timing of these articles is a little odd. The footage was discovered in 2009 by ABC Archivist John Williams; some of the recovered clips were shown publicly that year by Tim and Graeme during their shows at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta (October 15) and the World's Funniest Island in Sydney (October 17 & 18). John kindly had provided the story about how he recovered the footage for the fan club's Clarion & Globe Newsletter - it appeared in the November 2009 World's Funniest Island Special Edition which can be found online at http://www.goodiesruleok.com/articles.php?id=164
Today's new articles about the censored footage can be found at:
1. Sydney Morning Herald: "The Goodies on the baddies the censors blocked"
2. Sydney Morning Herald: "After a 30-year wait, the Goodies can finally reveal all"
3. The Age: "Goodies: censored tapes exposed"
