Life Before Monty Python

Different members of the Python team created and performed two different shows that point unmistakably toward what was to come. Comedy program "At Last The 1948 Show", who's title was a sly reference to the BBC's tendency to let shows sit on the shelf for too long. The other was "Do Not Adjust Your Set" - ostensibly a children's show, but its increasingly bizarre humor (The Bonzo Dog Band handled weekly music duties, including the performance of a little ditty called "Death Cab For Cutie") attracted many adult fans.
