The Goodies:Snow White 2 Showing at the BFI Southbank 28th December

(Thanks to Stevie Rigsby for this find)

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

– It’s… Monty Python at 50, September 2019  – BFI SOUTHBANK  241 TICKET OFFER

In 1969 John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Graham Chapman took one small silly walk for man, but one surreal leap for comedy when they unleashed their brilliant sketch show, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, on an unsuspecting British public. The iconic TV series launched stage shows, films, numerous albums, books and musicals, and half a century later, ripples still emanate from that splash, with many modern-day practitioners citing the Pythons as an influence. With programming input from the Pythons themselves, we celebrate the ingenious sextet with the largest and silliest celebration of the original show and its many roots, branches and offshoots.
