    The 90-minute documentary, directed by BAFTA award winning Roger Graef OBE, follows the stars of Monty Python as they reform and stage a marathon ten shows at The O2, London. With unprecedented access, this observational portrait reveals the humour, chaos and passion that went into bringing the ‘Monty Python Live (mostly) – One Down Five to Go’ shows to the stage. It offers a unique insight into the inner workings of five diverse talents pulling together after a 34-year hiatus to recreate their unique brand of comedy for a legion of fans and celebrity admirers. As well as following their journey to The O2, newly found archive reveals how they pioneered stadium comedy, with rarely before seen footage from Monty Python’s early live shows, including their 1973 ‘1st Farewell Tour’ and the 1980 ‘Live at the Hollywood Bowl’. It is the Pythons as never seen before, and will never be seen again.
