We were allowed the occasional GoTo, but only if it was a
forward jump, never backwards.

IF...THEN   and ELSE DO  were much to be preferred.

I have tinkered with Python and would prefer it to Basic
but have little need for any programming these days.

There is a Python implementation that includes GoTo!

One of our Pascal lecturers was very  anti-Basic and forbade us to use it,  or to even talk about it
My Pascal instructor was of the mind that the only two control
structures needed were:
* GoTo;
* Repeat Until;

That makes for some very messy code.
