The Goodies

The Minister of Sport asks the Goodies to represent Britain at the Winter Olympics – apparently, the current team are on strike over the lack of training facilities, after the consortium of hoods and drug-lords backing them decided to pull out. With the chance to represent his country - and the prospect of lots of money - Tim agrees, and it isn’t long before the blindfolded trio are on their way to a secret training camp in Bognor. Forced to make their own sports equipment out of old junk, Tim, Bill and Graeme get in a quick bit of training and then set off to the North Pole to join the competition. However, the extreme cold soon gets too much for them – so Graeme concocts a mad plan to melt all the ice…
