By Besley, AdrianForeword by The Pythons
This book delves into the official archives and recounts the history of the men who changed the face of comedy. The story is told through photographs, text, props and memorabilia, including hand-scribbled scripts, never-before-published cue sheets, artwork, unused presentation ma...terial, and more, offering the reader a unique peek into the world of these comic geniuses.

And 50 years after first broadcast, Monty Python's Flying Circus is still attracting and amusing audiences around the world.Read more
