DVD Description

The Flying Circus is where Monty Python started - 4 series of TV shows aired between 1969 and 1974 in the UK. Dubbed "The Fathers of Modern British Comedy", it was seen as the start of a new generation of TV comedy when it hit the mainstream and was certainly seen as controversial in its day. Topical issues were included but silliness was the main theme, and seeing the "everyday" portrayed at a tangent was the order of the day. The team's (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) classical education also is reflected in some of the more esoteric pieces. Now with a huge cult following, the Flying Circus appeals to both young and not-so-young.

I'd have saids the "Fathers of modern British comedy" were The Goons and Spike Milligan in paticular.
The MP team all were heavily influenced by Milligan's brilliant looniness (I met him once in Newcastle - he was on a train I was driving from Newcastle airport)
I was looking for something like this
