Monty Python - Almost The Truth - The Lawyer's Cut

October 2009 sees the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the first broadcast of Monty Python's Flying Circus by BBC TV in 1969. Almost The Truth: The Lawyer's Cut tells the story of Monty Python through brand new interviews with the Pythons: John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, and archive material from the late Graham Chapman.

A host of others also contribute to putting the Python legacy in context including: Phill Jupitus, Bruce Dickinson, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Stephen Merchant, Dan Aykroyd, Nick Mason, Tim Roth, Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard and more.

The six programmes in this set, each an hour long, combine the interviews with a generous helping of clips from pre-Python material, the original Flying Circus TV series, the films: Monty Python & The Holy Grail, Monty Python's Life Of Brian and Monty Python's Meaning Of Life, and their classic live performance at the Hollywood Bowl.

This is the only official, authorised set of programmes to commemorate Monty Python's 40th birthday.

Episodes comprise:

1. The Not-So-Interesting Beginnings
2. The Much Funnier Second Episode
3. And Now, The Sordid Personal Bits
4. The Ultimate Holy Grail Episode
5. Lust For Glory!
6. Finally! The Last Episode (Ever) (For now...)

First released: Monday 26th October 2009
