Where can I get hold of Life of Brian?
- The film is not currently available on any of the streaming video services.
- The film occasionally turns up on TV. In the UK, you probably need to keep an eye on Channel 4.
- Recommended version: Monty Python’s Life Of Brian – The Immaculate Edition: two disc DVD choc-full of special features and pretty cheap (ignore the note on Amazon that says “Special Features: None” — it is wrong).
- There are many clips from the film available on Youtube, including seven on the official Monty Python Youtube channel (see above).
- It is pretty straightforward to get hold of unofficial versions.
