“The First Man to Jump the Channel” premiered on the 21 December 1969. From Series 1, Episode 10 of "Monty Pythons Flying Circus", Terry Jones plays the over ambitious Ron Obvious, who undertakes several impossible tasks for charity under the guidance of his unscrupulous manager Luigi Vercotti (Michael Palin). Jumping the English Channel, eating Chichester Cathedral and splitting a railway carriage with his nose are just a few of the impossible tasks Ron Obvious naively tries to complete in to get some publicity.
