Return Of The Goodies

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Bill Oddie and Graeme Garden relive some of their finest moments

Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie

They're back, after 25 years. But did they ever really go away?

In this special blend of documentary, archive, sitcom and audience participation, Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie break into their old office to present a show which explores their giddy rise to fame in the 70s, the influence they and their programmes had on the nation, and attempt to explain why The Goodies haven't been on TV for so long.

They present the stories behind their finest moments and unearth some things which will be as much a surprise for them as they are for viewers, such as the story behind the Mary Whitehouse saga, and they also try to find out what happened to their three-seater bicycle.

Contributors and fans appearing on the show include Rolf Harris, Huw Edwards, Martin Freeman, Ronni Ancona, Tony Blackburn, Jon Culshaw, Mark Gatiss, Emma Kennedy and Phill Jupitus
