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 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. 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 and 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.

 Fantastic documentary on Monty Python

| | See all UglyTimberlake's reviews (1)

This is a fascinating DVD, which really gets into detail on the Monty Python story.
If you're a Python fan, and are looking to see what really made the team tick, this is a great insight, and goes beyond all the clips you've seen before.
I bought this for Christmas, and got one for myself as well! Highly recommended.

 A long winded affair....

As a lifelong Python fan I eagerly awaited this release - it IS very informative but rather long winded in my opinion. After 7 hours 45 minutes I was left with the feeling this would have been a better book than a DVD. I got fed up about 3 hours in when all they could do is seeming bang on about Graham Chapman's alcoholism - which despite routinely sinking half a bottle of vodka before lunch no one suspected.... If you doubled the number of Python clips and halved the screen time for the interviews (much of which is rather tedious) it would have been a perfect release. Sadly one to rent not buy as you would only want to sit through this once..
