Definately.

This is the "International Wife Swapping Sketch". The "Una" refered to is the name of Mr Johnson's wife (Una is a name not much used in UK anymore - its considered a bit dated.)

P.S. It isn't Michael Palin who makes the announcement, its a guy called Frank Bough who was (and still is) a famous UK presenter. At the time of filming Monty Python he was the presenter of the sports programme Grandstand.

thanks a million, Your Highness !
I love that sketch (about rugby) specially the terrible accent of the presenter.It's very close of some of our sports presenters in the south-west or south-east... with a very "shiny" accent...it seems that if you want to talk about rugby, you MUST have an accent from the south of France !!
