There were 10 Episodes made (I have only 1 episode - no idea which, but ask if you want a copy).

This was a short-lived, 30 minute, black & white BBC 1 sketch show which aired late on Saturday nights from 21st October 1967 until 23rd December 1967. Only ten episodes were made and the show borrowed extensively from, ĎIím Sorry Iíll Read That Againí scripts, which at the time had just completed its fourth series.

Forerunner to the long running comedy "The Goodies", this was a sketch-based show with a surreal edge. Two series were made, in colour, for BBC2 (the only British network to run colour transmissions before October 1969). Some ideas came from a long running radio series 'I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again' which featured the same cast plus John Cleese of 'Monty Python' fame and David Hatch (now an important man in the BBC's admin hierarchy!).

Complete & Utter History...
Micheal Palin
Terry Jones

This LWT comedy series, produced by Humphrey Barclay, was one of the three key programmes (the others being At Last the 1948 Show and Do Not Adjust Your Set) that led to the creation of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

The premise was simple: a zany retelling of English history as the backdrop to pacy, often surreal sketches. Once thought lost, three editions have recently (2008) surfaced via the BFI's Missing Believed Wiped initiative.

The Surprising History of Sex & Love
Terry Jones

Exploring the radical change in social and religious attitudes towards sex, Terry Jones starts with the place of 'sacred sex' in the ancient world and ends with a frank look at modern sex and its contemporary relationship with marketing and prurience. Delving into the denied existence of female gods in early Christian religion and uncovering the origins of bodily shame, this programme offers a map of how sex got from strict social repression to the full-frontal glossies of today.
