The Goodies: Snow White 2 showing at the BFI Southbank

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
