Season 3



I am slowly transcribing the sketches, so bear with me.
Key to notation in scripts: G.C. = Graham Chapman, T.J. = Terry Jones, T.G. = Terry Gilliam, M.P. - Michael Palin,
E.I. = Eric Idle, J.C. = John Cleese, C.C. = Carol Cleveland
Who played who in the sketches only relates to the series. Casting may be different in live recordings/ records.
Broadcast dates are the first time the episode was shown on BBC television.
