This sketch features Graham Chapman as a television interviewer and John Cleese in drag as a palaeontologist, Anne Elk, appearing on a television talk show titled Thrust. The plot of the sketch is that the interviewee, Anne Elk, can hardly describe the basis of her supposed new paleontological theory on dinosaurs, specifically Brontosauruses. The sketch was originally featured in Episode 2 of Series 1 of "Monty Python's Flying Circus", first broadcast on 12 October 1969. It was also featured in the 2014 reunion shows at The O2, London with John Cleese reprising his role as Anne Elk and Eric Idle and the exasperated interviewer.
