“In the early 1960s, three innocent youngsters â€“ Billy, Little Timothy and the Other One â€“ had headed for the world of academia and found themselves ensnared in the twilight world of cutting-edge comedy perpetuated by the shady, clandestine organisation known only as the Footlights. After many perilous adventures, they were to win through, save the United Kingdom from ruin, and become world famous in Australia. The Goodies: Super Chaps Three tells the story of how The Goodies came into being, their successes in various media and the legacy of their much-loved programme.
Written by acclaimed archive television historian and Goodies expert Andrew Pixley this is undoubtedly the definitive look at the production of this classic comedy series. Over ten years in the making, this whopping 600+ page book covers every single aspect of the series’ production as well as lengthy looks at Broaden Your Mind, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and other related programmes.”
