Anyone old enough to remember Monty Python’s Flying Circus the first time around and those who picked it up on repeats will no doubt be able to quote huge chunks of this ground breaking series, and walk silly, with scarcely any effort whatsoever.

This DVD release is for you. It contains every single episode, every single sketch and every single line ready for you to relive that first time. You can relive the first time you met Mr Gumby, the first time you saw inside The Ministry for Silly Walks, the first time you realised that the parrot was no more. Cult TV had three sets to give away in a prize competition.

Monty Python DVD setAt last Monty Python’s Flying Circus – Complete Series 1-4 is available to buy. How can any serious fan not want this? Surely this is better than a new brain from Curry’s or a box of The Whizzo Quality Assortment (watch out for the Crunchy Frog).

Monty Python’s Flying Circus starred Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. It also frequently featured Carol Cleveland (whenever the script required a busty feminine female). The series began in October 1969, ran for four series and spawned four films.

The collection also has some excellent extras, including two brand new featurettes. Based around exclusive interviews with the Pythons and other comic luminaries, home movies and footage of early sketches, ‘Before the Flying Circus’ reveals the performances that influenced the Pythons-to-be, as well as their process of finding the creative voice that would one day repeat the word “Spam” more times than anyone would care to hear.

The long and winding road to success Stateside is recounted in ‘Monty Python Conquers America’ through exclusive interviews with those who helped make it happen, along with American comedy and entertainment stars influenced by Monty Python, including Judd Apatow, Hank Azaria, David Hyde Pierce, Trey Parker and Luke Wilson. The Box Set also features ‘Politically Incorrect’, a controversial never-before-seen deleted scene that was removed by the BBC for fear that it would affect the election taking place at the time of the original broadcast.

So now is the time to relive the moment you first witnessed a bedraggled, bearded old man crawl out the of sea stagger up the camera and with his last breath say...’It’s’

Monty Python’s Flying Circus – Complete Series 1-4 Box Set is available now, priced £44.99 or less from www.culttvstore.com

Thanks to Cult TV and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, you could have had the opportunity to add one of three copies of the Monty Python DVD Box Set into your collection, in our prize competition. All you had to do was tell us the answer to the following question: When did Monty Python’s Flying Circus first air? The answer was October 1969, and the winners were Naeem Malik of Ilford, Janette Stonehouse of Hartlepool and Mark Tucker of East Ham - well done all!
