In 1969 perhaps the most influential TV comedy ever began: Monty Python's Flying Circus. Four TV series, four films, several live shows, musicals and records, and one death later, the five surviving members of Monty Python have returned for a series of live shows at London's O2 Arena.

Monty Python Live (Mostly) is a live broadcast of the show's last night - their final ever performance, on Sunday 20 July 2014.

Shown live on Gold and broadcast in more than 2,000 cinemas across the world - including over 450 in the UK alone - there are classic sketches aplenty, some with a new spin, performed by John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, and from beyond the grave the late Graham Chapman.
