The 72nd series of Radio 4’s multi award-winning ‘antidote to panel games’ promises more homespun wireless entertainment for the young at heart. This week the programme pays a return visit to Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury where Tim Brooke-Taylor and Stephen Fry are pitched against Pippa Evans and Miles Jupp, with Jack Dee in the chair. At the piano – Colin Sell. Producer – Jon Naismith. It is a BBC Studios production.

There’s a screening of The Goodies: Snow White 2 at the BFI Southbank, part of their The TV Christmas Pantomime Event. It’s happening on the 28th December 2019…
The Crackerjack Pantomime: Robinson Crusoe
BBC 1975. Dir Robin Nash. With Peter Glaze, Don Maclean, Ed Stewart, Jan Hunt. 65min
Various BBC sitcom stars (John Laurie, John Inman, Windsor Davies and Don Estelle) joined the regular Crackerjack cast for this slapstick-heavy romp with a sprinkling of intentionally corny jokes, some of which may offend the sensibilities of a modern audience and demonstrate how things have changed.
+ The Goodies: Snow White 2
ITV 1981. Dir Bob Spiers. With Bill Oddie, Graeme Garden, Tim Brooke-Taylor. 25min
In their typical, lightning-paced and zany style, The Goodies brilliantly deconstruct the entire pantomime tradition.
SAT 28 DEC 15:30 NFT2
Tickets are available from this link….
Between the week 30th September to 6th October 2018. ‘The Goodies: The Complete BBC Collection’ DVD Boxset came No. 14 in the Official TV on Video Chart Top 50.
