Effortlessly uncool.

The Goodies

I watched ‘The Return of the Goodies’ on BBC2 last night and loved every minute of it. I was a huge fan as a kid and had all the books, which I read over and over again. It was joyful to see Bill, Graeme and Tim back together again and to relive some of the best moments from the show. It’s scandalous that it’s never been repeated and the BBC should be ashamed of themselves. If the viewing figures from last night’s reunion show were good, perhaps they’ll be persuaded to put on some reruns.

    Hear, hear! Some of my fondest memories of childhood TV were of the goodies. Especially the giant Dougall and the Jack and the Beanstalk take off.

    I only went and missed the programme last night though, didn’t I. Well hopefully now the Beeb will show them on BBC 3.

    I’d love to see some re-runs, do you know if the Beeb has any such plans?
