In 1979 Monty Python’s Life of Brian caused controversy around the world. This is NOT their story…
Holy Flying Circus is a fantastical re-imagining of the events leading up to Michael Palin and John Cleese appearing on the BBC’s Friday Night Saturday Morning to defend the film against charges of blasphemy. Written by Tony Roche (In the Loop, The Thick of It) directed by Owen Harris (Misfits, Skins) and edited by Billy Sneddon (Four Lions, In the Loop) this is a bold and entertaining homage to one of the world’s greatest comedy teams.
This programme does not feature the Pythons and is not produced or endorsed by them.
