I am trying to track down any record of a half hour television interview done with several members of the Monty Python group during its Canadian Tour but I cannot find any reliable dates.

Specifically, I am looking for the date of the group's performance at the Edmonton Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in 1972 or 1973

The interview, on a local community TV channel, would have been done on the afternoon of their first appearance but I have no hope of finding out if a tape still exists without a date.


Thanks
Rick Grant

I know it was definately 1973. Still working on the exact date.

If there's any memorabilia from it, please let me know, I catalog all such stuff.

I emailed the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. They say that the Pythons performed there on June 14, 1973.

Thank you very much indeed. Now I can contact the person who claims to have a garage full of old video tape from the community channel and see if the interview still exists.

If it does exist it will show 4 or 5 of the Pythons gradually taking over the half hour interview program and eventually running the cameras themselves and taking most of the clothes off the interviewer.

It could be some time but I'll let you all know if I find it.
