The titular event includes a swimsuit and evening-gown competition, and a 15-second summary of Remembrances of Things Past, performed as a madrigal by The Fred Tomlinson Singers. Col. Sir John Teasy Weasy Butler describes the International Hairdresser's Expedition of Mt. Everest. After coming attractions for "A Magnificent Festering," the fire brigade waits until Friday to answer a call from Mrs. Little and her headhunter son Eamon. Veronica Smalls offers advice as to throwing a party during a Communist uprising. Mrs. Tick takes a tour of a language laboratory, which ends with a performance of Sandy Wilson's musical version of The Devils. Mr. Smoketoomuch tries to book a world tour from Mr. Bounder. And a discussion of the Brontosaurus by Anne Elk (Miss) is interrupted with a reprise of the Proust Madrigal, even though the Competition has already been won by the Girl With the Biggest Tits. First telecast November 16, 1972, this Monty Python's Flying Circus episode was graced with another prominent appearance by Carol Cleveland.
