Today Monty Python celebrates its 50th birthday! On the 5th October 1969, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” first aired on BBC1 – going on to run for four series, spawning four original films, numerous live shows and several albums.

Reflecting on the legacy and approaching celebrations, the Pythons commented:

“Python has survived because we live in an increasingly Pythonesque world. Extreme silliness seems more relevant now than it ever was.”
