Monty Python's Flying Circus (UK)

The television series, broadcast by the BBC from 1969 to 1974, was conceived, written and performed by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. The irreverent Monty Python comedy troupe present a series of skits which are often surreal, baudy, uncompromising, tasteless, but inevitably hilarious.

Gold Secures 'Monty Python' Live Broadcast
UKTV’s Gold channel will broadcast the final performance of the Monty Python Live (mostly): One Down Five to Go stage show. The 10 night stage show sees the long anticipated re-union of the five members of Monty Python for the first time in 40 years. UKTV will be broadcasting the final night’s performance on Sunday July 20th. Gold’s broadcast will consist of a live back stage programme, followed by the stage show itself. The broadcast is expected to last three hours and marks the first time in UKTV’s 21 year history that an event of this magnitude has aired live on any of their channels. In addition to a live broadcast of the final performance, UKTV has also commissioned a five-part series on Monty Python.
