That's one that hits me - The Goodies, Bananaman and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue...

Oh no. I was a Bill Odie man as a young Goodies fan, but as I got older Tim became my firm favourite. His radio work was just fantastic. How fucking awful.

Tim Brooke Taylor was a disarmingly funny man. Sorry to hear about his passing but grateful for all the laughs he gave me.

Was sorry to hear of Tim's passing as well. I was a huge Goodie's fan back in the day.

Also below, news of the recent death of one of my favourite composers, Krzysztof Penderecki. Some of you might have recognised his music, as it was used in films like "The Exorcist" and "The Shining".

R.I.P. to both Krzysztof and Tim Brooke-Taylor.

 If anyone is on Audible there is a new Goodies audio show that shows how great they still were and stands as a tribute to Tim

Sir John Houghton - COVID-19

a leading light of atmospheric and climate science, who collected a Nobel on behalf of the IPCC. You might recall him as the person the Sun wanted sacked from the BBC alongside Michael Fish when they failed to predict those storms.

Regardless, a life well lived, and enormous contributions to the climate change movement.

Oh no, just found out we lost David Collings a few weeks back. Did I miss it being posted here? Apologies if so.

Besides doing regular work on Doctor Who and Blake’s Seven, he was also the voice of Sun WuKong for the U.K. dubbing of ‘Monkey’!
