Product description

This work contains twelve episodes of the groundbreaking series, plus one bonus unbroadcast show. Immensely popular and hugely influential, legendary series "The Goon Show" changed the face of British comedy. Now, for the first time, this box set collection presents the episodes in chronological order of original broadcast date. This second volume includes: "Ye Bandit of Sherwood Forest", "Nineteen Eighty-Five", "The Case of the Missing Heir", "Under Two Floorboards", "The Missing Scroll", "Nineteen Eighty-Five" (remake), "The Sinking of Westminster Pier", "The Fireball of Milton Street", "The Six Ingots of Leadenhall Street", "Yehti", "The White Box of Great Bardfield" and "The End". Also featured are some rare archive bonus items, including the unbroadcast and previously unreleased version of "The Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler" (of "Bexhill-on-Sea"). Two illustrated booklets tell the story of the show's development with reference to original archive paperwork, plus the history of the recordings themselves. In addition, this box set contains four limited edition postcards featuring characters from "The Goon Show" as Spike Milligan imagined them. Remastered using new material and the latest technology to give the best possible sound quality, these recordings are sure to appeal to all collectors of "The Goon Show".
