All Publicly Available Goon Show Scripts


If you know of others let me know!!

The titles have generally been taken from the transcriptions themselves, please let me know if I have mis-filed any under the wrong date/title. (Titles in blue are scripts on the main page)

The first 'transcript' column lists the most accurate transcript I know of for that show.
If I don't know which is the most accurate, or there are two or more independant transcript which I haven't yet compared, then the first column is left blank.

Independant transcriptions of the same show are listed in seperate rows.
Transripts in each row are in approximate chronological order newest to oldest.
