3 short films by Monty Python made in the early 1970’s, never intended to be seen by the public, only for the employees of Birds Eye, Harmony Hairspray and Close Up toothpaste.
Although these industrial films are largely aimed at the staff of said companies, the information they provide is injected by a large dose of typically Python humor and is essential viewing for the Python completeness.
The Pythons are by no means alone in producing industrial films. There was a specially shot episode of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ for drillers of North Sea oil, and more recently Ricky Gervais revived the character of David Brent for two short films never to be seen outside the walls of Microsoft!
The quality of these films is good, but not brilliant. However the rarity value of these items far outweighs any concerns about the quality.
With many thanks to SpinyNorman, the original ripper, for all his efforts.

A note from my source (in reply to some posts):
Just a brief note:- I’m not the original uploader of these. I acquired them from a private torrent. They are however no longer available there so I presume I’m ok to distribute them elsewhere. If this is not the case my apologies to the original uploader.
