    The Goodies

    The Goodies

    BBC Two (ended 1982)
    Created, written and performed by comedians Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden and Tim Brooke-Taylor, The Goodies was a British comedy that ran for 9 seasons between November 1970 and February 1982 on the BBC. With the motto 'We do anything, anytime', The Goodies often found themselves dealing with all sorts of bizarre situations such as giant kittens, the Loch Ness monster, dodo birds, lighthouses, the destruction of the Earth, black puddings and beanstalks, just to name a few. The plot for most episodes was relatively simple: One member of the trio goes nuts and the other two desperately try to stop him. Using a unique blend of sketch comedy, slapstick and almost cartoon-like humour the show was often outrageously madcap, and only rarely failed to hit the mark. The Goodies have received something of a revival in recent years with selected episodes being released on DVD in the UK and Australia, and a number of live tours performed by the trio. In the U.S.A. the Goodies are often compared to the Three Stooges when fans are trying to describe the show to some one who has never seen it. You can see some of what made the Three Stooges so great in the things the Goodies do.moreless

    Unsympathetic to the precious pomposity of the rock and pop industry, 'Buzzcocks' takes a sledgehammer to the delicate egos of the biggest and most famous names in music - often whilst they are guests on the programme. The scathing wit of Mark Lamarr and later Simon Amstell, has literally caused guests to walk off the show. Since 2009, the show has been presented by different guest hosts each week.
    In 2013, the BBC aired a series called What a Load of Buzzcocks which is narrated by Blur's Alex James and looks at the best bits of a certain year of music including moments from 'Buzzcocks'.moreless
