Almost The Truth: The Lawyer’s Cut
- Monty Python
- Release: Out Now
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 & 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. The six programmes, 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” & “Monty Python’s Meaning Of Life” and their classic live performance at the Hollywood Bowl. This is the only official, authorised programme to commemorate Monty Python’s 40th birthday.
