Python live debut 1971 - the behind the scenes story by Wayne Spencer on 22 October 2009 2:39pm
 
Glad you liked it. Yes I found it very interesting too. I live in the East Midlands, only about 30 miles from Coventry so it was good to read how Python history was made right here.

I already put this on the PythOnline boards, but just in case anyone didn't see it there.

There's an excellent behind the scenes account of how the Pythons made their live debut in 1971 at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry on Colin Richardson's blog. Well worth reading. Link is
http://colinrichardson.vox.com/library/post/monty-pythons-first-ever-live-performance---belgrade-theatre-coventry---the-story-behind-it-pt-6.html

Colin also hoped that something will be done to mark the 40th of the live debut in 2 years time. I think that would be a good thing too. Maybe a plaque at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry and a talk there, hopefully with some of the Pythons taking part. I hope something like that happens.

Colin also did a radio interview about all this. Its online at
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p004qvb8/Annie_Othen_21_10_2009/
Slide the fader along to 2.38.00 to listen to it.

Radio int available till Wed 28 Oct. UK listeners only I think.

The radio interview is now archived on Colin's blog at
http://colinrichardson.vox.com/library/post/annie-othens-show-on-bbc-coventry-warwickshire---monty-python-interview.html

Just click on the pink button to hear it. And its available worldwide, not just for UK listeners.
Definitely worth a listen.
