Hello

Three favourite sketches.

One with Eric Idle introducing an act in the most ingratiating manner imaginable. He's then told that the act can't make it and he simply states 'ah well he's not all he's cracked up to be'

Second is the sketch about goalkeepers and the yangtse river.

Third is agrarian land reform sang in different styles - 'trhere's evidence . . .' etc (hope that made sense?

Anyway. Does anyone know which format thses are available on (DVD, CHS, CD) and where I could get them?

Cheers

Land reform... isn't that on one of the records? I don't think there it ever was a video sketch?

The first is from the tv show episode 9.
(Links to the scripts are on my website and many others).
Available on DVD.

The second sounds like the song known as "We Love the Yangtze"
officially called "Yangtse Music" from Monty Python's Previous Record
(don't recall the connection to goalkeepers though).
Available on CD and earlier formats. Not from the tv show.

The third is the Oxon Song from the Matching Tie and Handkerchief
album; this was not on the tv show. Available in CD format too.

The aforementioned songs were written by Neil Innes.

I remember a sketch about goalkeepers and the Yangtse. A couple of goalkeepers talking about what the mighty river meant to them. "Wonderous river... river full of... fish". Peter Shilton was one of the goalkeepers, i don't remember the others.

I heard it on a tape, must have been late 80's. I've been looking for it since then :-)

It is Python - its from the Yangtse sketch/ song from 'Monty Python's Previous Record'

You can't get it as a seperate sketch because even the CDs have only 2 tracks equivalent to side 1 and side 2 of the LP.

well you could, provided you had a good audio editing program.

i'd say if it was on the vinyl, it'll be on the CD.

The sketch is called "The Yangtze River Supporter" and it's on Monty Python's Previous Record from 1972.
