A critical review with Neil Innes and Alexei Sayle

This is the first independent film review of the roots of Monty Python exploring how the unique comedy of Python grew out of the At Last The 1948 show and Do Not Adjust Your Set.

The film assesses in detail the reasons for Python's successes and failures and surveys the lasting impact of this British institution. Also featured are extensive insights from Neil Innes, Python's warm up man, stand-in and minstrel. Neil, along with Douglas Adams was one of only two outsiders to contribute material to the Python TV series. The DVD compares extensive surviving examples of the early work of the Pythons working in separate camps with the mature TV series and films produced by the group as a whole.

The DVD is accompanied by a highly detailed 72 page book featuring a thorough review of the work of Monty Python on television, on record on stage and on film, tracing the group's profound influence upon British and American comedy. The DVD draws on rare archive footage alongside analysis from a leading team of comedians, journalists and critics including Alexi Sayle, Tom Binns, Ian Stone and of course, Neil Innes.

EDITORIAL CONTROL: This project requires totally independent editorial control. This film is unauthorised and is not associated or approved in any way by present and past members of Monty Python or their management.
