Monty Python: Almost the Truth
October 2009 sees the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the first broadcast of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" by BBC TV in 1969. "Monty Python: 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: Phil Jupitus, Bruce Dickinson, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Stephen Merchant, Dan Aykroyd, Nick Mason, Tim Roth, Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard and more. This feature length film combines the interviews with a generous helping of clips from pre-Python material, the original "Flying Circus" TV series, the films: "Monty Python and 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 film to commemorate Monty Python's 40th birthday.
