Episode Title: FROM THE MONTY PYTHON ARCHIVE: “DÉJÀ VU” RESURRECTED
Produced by: Monty Python
Description: What do you do with a tape that’s been hidden away for over twenty five years? Why, get it played of course!

The tape is one of two original transmission tapes of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” that slipped through the net when the BBC made their digital masters in the early 1990s. The episode, “Déjà Vu”, the third episode of the second series, should have been part of that archiving process but for some reason the BBC’s poorer quality sales copy was archived instead.

According to the paperwork, the tape hasn’t been played since 1979, but it seemed fitting that it should be resurrected in Monty Python’s 50th anniversary year.

The tape is a two-inch quadruplex recording, a format developed by Ampex in the 1950s. It was the workhorse of television broadcasters from 1958 until the late 1980s when it was superseded by more flexible formats. Ampex quad machines haven’t been manufactured since the early 1980s, but working machines can still be found. This video shows the first time we played back “Déjà Vu”, almost certainly the first time it has been played since the 1970s.

Episode Title: “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”: Michael Palin & Terry G ‘in conversation’ with David Baddiel
Produced by: Monty Python
Description: On 12 April 2019, ahead of the 40th anniversary global theatrical we-welease of “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” on 18 April 2019, Trafalgar Releasing hosted a special screening of the film which was followed by an “in conversation” with Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin hosted by David Baddiel, at Picturehouse Central in London.

To find out more about the release and to buy tickets, visit WeWantBrian.com.

Highly controversial upon its original release and banned in several countries, “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” is frequently ranked as the greatest comedy feature of all time across the world.

Set in 33 A.D. Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe in them. At its centre is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in the stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and reluctantly mistaken for the promised messiah, providing ample opportunity for the entire Monty Python ensemble (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, from the art of haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view.

Returning to cinemas for its 40th Anniversary, in glorious standard definition and mono-sound, Monty Python delivers a scathing, anarchic satire of both religion and Hollywood’s depiction of all things biblical with their 1979 feature film “Life of Brian”.
Highly controversial upon its original release and banned in several countries, the film is now frequently ranked as the greatest comedy feature of all time by magazines and media outlets around the world. As Monty Python member Terry Gilliam says, “It rips
bare and makes you laugh at the world we’ve created for ourselves.” Audiences will be able to join in the celebrations with a commemorative pack, available at cinema screenings on Thursday 18 April (subject to availability).

Eric Idle Introduces His New Book “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography”

ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE: A SORTABIOGRAPHY will be published in print, digital and audio formats in October 2018 by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in the UK and by Crown Archetype in the United States.
In the book, Idle now reflects on the meaning of his own life and takes us on a remarkable, absurdly funny journey from his childhood spent in a charity boarding school through to his successful career in radio, comedy, television, theatre and film. Coming of age as a writer and comedian during the Sixties and Seventies, Idle stumbled into the crossroads of the Cultural Revolution and found himself rubbing shoulders with the likes of George Harrison, David Bowie and Robin Williams, all of whom became lifelong friends.

With anecdotes sprinkled throughout that involve such close friends and luminaries as Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Paul Simon, Mike Nichols and many more – let alone the Pythons themselves – Idle captures a time of tremendous creative output with equal hilarity and heart. In ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE, named after the song Eric wrote for LIFE OF BRIAN that has since become the number-one song played at funerals in the UK, he shares the highlights of his life and career with the offbeat humour that has delighted audiences for five decades.

Eric Idle says: ‘We used to be babe magnets. Now we’re fridge magnets. I thought it was time to tell my tale before I suffer from Hamnesia, which is what happens to elderly actors.’
