Competition: Win a DVD of Holy Flying Circus!

In 1979, Monty Python’s “Life Of Brian” became one of the most controversial films ever to be released in British cinemas, causing outrage amongst religious groups, members of the public and politicians, most of whom hadn’t even seen the film. Accusing it of being blasphemous, many called for the film to be banned. Now, the brand-new, critically acclaimed comedy-drama Holy Flying Circus revisits that period and delivers a witty, entertaining and affectionate homage to the Pythons and the film that, today, has become accepted as one of the greatest comedy movies of all time. 

2 copies are available. To be in with a chance to win, email and a winner will be selected at random.

" In 1979 Monty Python's Life of Brian caused controversy around the world. This is NOT their story...
Holy Flying Circus is a fantastical re-imagining of the events leading up to Michael Palin and John Cleese appearing on the BBC's Friday Night Saturday Morning to defend the film against charges of blasphemy. Written by Tony Roche (In the Loop, The Thick of It) directed by Owen Harris (Misfits, Skins) and edited by Billy Sneddon (Four Lions, In the Loop) this is a bold and entertaining homage to one of the world's greatest comedy teams.
This programme does not feature the Pythons and is not produced or endorsed by them.
Special features - Out-takes; Deleted Scenes (TBC) "

Holy Flying Circus will be released on DVD by FremantleMedia Enterprises on 6th February 2012.
