Something completely different
As the Pythons have celebrated a very special birthday Network Distributing are proud to announce Monty Python's Flying Circus: The Complete Series 1, fully restored in high-definition for the first time!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of a genuinely iconic series, Monty Python's Flying Circus is presented as nature intended! With Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin now in HD glory, this ground-up restoration has been produced from the best available materials, painstakingly restored, and garnished with larks' vomit...
Previously edited sketches have been returned to their original length while filmed sketch sequences and Terry Gilliam's animations have been newly scanned in High Definition, adding unimaginable depth and clarity to some classic moments. Terry Gilliam recently dropped by the restoration studio to have a look - his excited reaction is at the link above.
From the archive come genuine rarities including previously unseen studio outtakes and extended versions of filmed sketch material, making this the ultimate in television restoration and a must-have for every generation of Python fan! The Digipak edition features an exclusive packaging design using original Monty Python animation work blessed by Terry Gilliam, and an extensive book on the series' production history from noted TV historian Andrew Pixley.
