At last, for the first time ever (well at least since the 30th anniversary), the complete history of Monty Python. It’s not all parrots, Grail and Brian. This is hours of the thing, to be precise, not including DVD extras – as told straight from the mouths of John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idea, Terry Gilliam, and thanks to the incredible research and completely analog, undigitised archives, Graham Chapman. They are all here, the dead one too!
