To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Monty Python, Michael Palin hunts down once-lost Python recordings and historical curiosities.

This third episode digs deep into the archives to excavate recordings relating to the controversial 1979 film, Life of Brian. Eric and Graham negotiate a voiceover fee for the film, John Cleese press-gangs his mother into doing a free radio advert and we meet the infamous freedom fighter Otto - with a deleted scene suggesting that, while the film was causing outrage and offence, even more contentious content was lying on the cutting room floor.
