In Europe, a remastered widescreen DVD of the performance is available. In America, the special is a bonus feature in the Monty Python 16 Ton Box Set, but it is an older transfer that is in rough shape, and a cropped fullscreen format.

Okay, this is great. Monty Python - live, in front of a huge audiens - gives this movie a good sense of atmosphere (all the happy people you see that is so happy you would think they'd die of it) that enlightens the Python show - that must go on!
Several of the classic scetches is performed; The Person Looking For An Argument, Little Redriding Hood, The Nutcase Olympics, The Lumberjacker and several more of great quality. You'll laugh like a maniac!
