Aired May 12, 2009 on BBC One
When the Monty Python film Life of Brian opened in Britain in 1979, it broke box office records in its first week of release. The film was banned by many local authorities, but by the start of 2009 only one ban was left - in Aberystwyth. The mayor of Aberstwyth successfully campaigned to get the ban lifted. To celebrate this historic event, Pythons Michael Palin and Terry Jones attended a special charity screening at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.
