There are four new radio specials coming to celebrate Monty Python’s 50th anniversary.
The recently Knighted Sir Michael Palin will act as executive producer of the shows that will air in September on the BBC and will feature “never-before-released material from the Monty Python sound archives”.
The Python anniversary will also be marked by a month-long event at the British Film Institute in London.
On the actual anniversary, October 5th, organizers hope to stage the largest gathering ever of people dressed as Gumbys – the spectacle-wearing, knotted handkerchief-sporting imbeciles who became part of Python lore.
