I think it's shameful. Absolutely shameful. Every two-bit no-talent ever to sour the face of comedy - even Bernard Manning - has had their own string of little celebrations, and The Fats Show only had to exist for five years before it was given the anniversary treatment. So why not The Goodies? Because someone somewhere thinks they are "unfashionable" apparently. Not a good enough reason BBC.
And I hate Jane Root too. Especially if it genuinely was her that sent me that very large and mailbox-jamming MPEG of Del Boy falling through the bar. Which I now find even less funny than I did before.

May I draw your attention to p.112 of next week's RT? 10.35pm BBC1 'Best of British: Caroline Quentin'
I mean honestly.
When's Trevor and Simon Night on BBC2?
[Looks in Radio Times:] Oh... they're running it against C4's Iain Lee Season...
Speaking of which, the lanky notalent has his own show next week...
BBC2 has still yet to broadcast a single decent comedy series of its own making this year. (Louis Theroux does not count.) I mean, for Christ's sake, at least ITV's got Skinner.
So how about typing that letter out for us people who can't work newspapers...? :)
Spot the scorn. 'Tis rampant.
Sir: Hats off to Jane Root and her innovative plans for BBC2 (Media, 7 November). More programmes about food, gardening, art, classical music, religion, business, and the countryside. What vision! And how wise of her to donate her comedy jewels to BBC1. No wonder she has never been happier.
No doubt she recalls that today (8 November) marks the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast on BBC2 of 'The Goodies', a comedy series which tackled subjects such as food, gardening, art, classical music, religion, business and the countryside, not to mention the History of Britain, etc etc.
Do you reckon he's been flooded yet?
Throwing copyright laws to the wind, we played the first ep prior to the standup night I host.
Or if you're a lawyer, we didn't.
Is there any formal campaign going at the moment to get this show (most of which I've never seen) back on air?
I mean for chrissakes *The Good Life* is getting repeated for the nith time.
Please inform me either via. the forum, or email to: email@example.com

Stick to the Frijj, Peter. Comedy don't suit you.
That was a 'Corpse', methinks.
It doesn't matter who it was - the important thing is the unavoidable truth of what they said. I shall henceforth avoid enjoying myself and instead write very serious essays about the Radio Times.
>That was a 'Corpse', methinks.
And that was no one.
Thanks for the link, Bean!
