I am looking for the episodes or film that had a scence with rich men describing how poor the used to be. We were so poor we lived in a box. A box you were lucky to have a box etc. I think they were on the deck of a cruise ship. Also looking for the end of the earth scene where the say will this wind be so mighty as to lay low the mountains of the earth.
Can you help
thanks

The first sketch you are referring to is The Four Yorkshiremen.

Here it is from Live at the hollywood bowl

Sorry but I cant think what the second sketch you are looking for is....

The second sketch is "End of the World". It's not a Python sketch although members of the Pythons did appear in a version of it with Peter Cook and Rowan Atkinson in The Secret Policeman's Ball.

I think the sketch originated in Beyond the Fringe (starring Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Alan Bennet and Jonathan Miller). There is a script of the original version here, although it doesn't have a lot of the more caustic (and funnier) bits Peter Cook put in for the Secret Policeman's Ball version.

I also found this on YouTube. It's 3 LSU students performing it for a revue show and it's more like the Secret Policeman's Ball version. It's worth checking out.
