Discussion and Q&A with Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden

The Goodies join us to discuss their fantastic legacy and relive some of the comedy magic.

Fifty years ago, three comedy talents – Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie – came together to unleash a wave of mayhem in The Goodies, a fast-paced mélange of surreal ideas, slapstick and film trickery that resulted in a colourful ‘live-action cartoon’ that became a much-loved viewer favourite. We’re pleased to welcome Brooke-Taylor, Garden and Oddie to the BFI stage to celebrate this golden anniversary.

Tickets are available to non BFI Members from 10th March and can be booked here..

Slapstick Festival: At Last the 1948 Show: Almost Complete! with Tim Brooke-Taylor


(David the Snapper)

(from Slapstick Festival)

‘At Last the 1948 Show’ triggered a revolution destined to change the face of TV comedy forever. John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Aimi MacDonald, Marty Feldman and Graham Chapman burst onto the nation’s small screens in an explosion of unrelated and often surreal sketches. It paved the way for both Month Python and The Goodies. With a new – as complete as it’s likely to ever be – three DVD/BluRay set released recently by BFI we thought a re-evaluation and a glimpse at the newly discovered footage with series star and Slapstick patron Tim Brooke-Taylor was long overdue. Tim will be in conversation with fan of the series Robin Ince. Followed by an audience Q&A and post-event DVD signing with Tim.
