About Brian

Remember the fuss over Monty Python’s Life of Brian and how it took a former cast member who is also the mayor of a Mid Wales town to get it shown in her patch 30 years on?

Here’s a reminder, anyway.

You may be interested to know that there’s a programme about it on TV tonight (Tuesday) – but you’ll need to be in Wales to see it.

It’s on BBC1 Wales at 10.35 (repeated on BBC2 on Friday at 10 p.m.) and the blurb says:

How the ban on screenings of Monty Python’s Life of Brian was lifted in Aberystwyth, thanks to the actions of city mayor and former actress, Sue Jones-Davies.

Oddly enough, there are still people around who are against its being shown.
