Several cineastes report from the set of Scott of the Antarctic, where inebriated director James McRettin holds court over actors who can't remember their lines and who stand on flimsy boxes. After numerous setbacks, the film's title is changed to Scott of the Sahara. At long last, the opening Monty Python credits are shown, followed by Eric Praline's attempt to secure a license for his pet fish. A soccer match is held between the Bournemouth Gynecologists and the Watford Long John Silver Impersonators. And in answer to numerous requests, perennial guest star Carol Cleveland appears topless. "Scott of the Antarctic" originally aired December 2, 1970.
