The 'Audience With' prog on the non-special edition doesn't feature the advertised Q&A (which is mentioned on the back of the cover). Is there one on the other set?

I'm not sure... there's two episodes that freak me out and I'm not sure I could revisit them 35 years later. Firstly where their house is encased in concrete, they grow old and die trapped and isolated, then are discovered by versions of themselves from the far future. Chilling. Secondly where the end of the world is nigh at midnight, which eventually does happen, then the BBC globe explodes. Oh god I'm terrified again

Oh and also where they explode an atomic bomb while playing cricket? Bit hazy on that one

While we're here - is there an episode of the Goodies where they're White Faced clowns and there are a series of railway carriages one inside another? Or was that a dream I had because I was eight (8)?

There is one in which they somehow end up with a giant tin of soup which has in fact been engineered as a form of chemical warfare, to turn those who consume it into clowns.  The trio of course end up consuming it.

One buyer tried the "chroma dot colour recovery" at home on Caught In The Act, and he actually got some results too.
