In this episode Mozart, played by John Cleese, presents his own television programme, “It’s Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart”. The show looks at famous deaths which are then judged by a panel of judges. We start with the death of Genghis Khan and then cut to the judges who hold up scorecards to rate his death. Eddie Waring (Eric Idle) presents the scoreboard, where the scores for the deaths of St. Stephen, Richard III, Marat and King Edward VII, among others, are listed. Genghis Khan’s death comes in in 6th place just ahead of King Edward VII. We return to Mozart who announces “this week’s request death” and we are shown the death of Mr Bruce Foster of Guildford. The show ends with “the wonderful death of the famous English Admiral Nelson”.
'It's Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart' premiered on the 5 October 1969 in the first ever episode of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus”.
