There are conflicting accounts concerning the glider that flies over the wall during "Piggy in the Middle" from "The Tragical History Tour." In his DVD commentary, Eric Idle says the appearance of the glider was totally unexpected. But in an interview with Q Magazine (Feb. 1996), second unit cameraman Chris Sargent says he knew there was a gliding school nearby, and that he suggested asking an instructor to fly a glider over the wall. Both accounts agree that the glider came so close, the "policemen" atop the wall panicked. See more »
When the narrator tries to describe the actual sound of singing "SERGEANT RUTTERS ONLY DARTS CLUB BAND" backwards, the on-screen title displays "DNAB BULC STRAD YLNO SRETTUR TNAEGRES" which are all the letters in reverse order, but he says "DNAB BULC YLNO SRETTUR TNAEGRES" failing to pronounce STRAD, or DARTS backwards.

[Ron Nasty and wife Chastity are giving a press conference in Nasty's shower]
We're doing this for peace, and basically to show that the world is, you know, going astray in its thinking.
What are you doing?
We're getting wet. In a shower. Because, basically, we talked it over, Chastity and myself, and we came to the conclusion that civilization is nothing more than an effective sewage system. And so by the use of plumbing we hope to demonstrate this to the world.

Generally I thought the movie was great. There were some very funny
moments in it. My favorites; the Bath In and when George Harrison is
interviewing Micheal Palin and behind them the strangest things get
stolen. Recognizing all the famous (and less famous) Beatle moments and
footage was a lot of fun.
But the best thing about the movie was Neil Innes. Not only did he
write those great songs in the movie, but he also gives an incredibly
accurate performance of John/Nasty. Every move he makes, every word he
says, the way he looks, the way he sings, the way he talks... He IS
John there. Wonderful, even in all the serious movies that featured
someone portraying John, I have never seen anyone do so very well.
