2:10 The Seventh Python - Carol Cleveland - They're calling it the "The Final Reunion Sort of" show. July 1st 2014 at the O2 Arena in London. The surviving members of Monty Python will perform together again in a one off greatest hits show. They have not been on stage together since they performed at the the Hollywood Bowl in 1980. John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, all in their 70's now, told a news conference in London this morning that they will be doing the old bits, but not in a predictable way. Joining the Pythons for the "Final reunion, sort of" will be the woman often referred to as the 7th Python- Carol Cleveland. She appeared in 30 of the 45 epsides of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
2.20 JFK Assassination Witness - Bill Newman - 50 years ago, Bill Newman and his wife Gayle decided to take their young sons to downtown Dallas to see President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie in the motorcade down Elm Street in Dallas. They found a good position, on the north side of Dealey Plaza, just below the now famous grassy knoll, to watch with their sons Billy, who was 4 and Clayton, just two. Just as the limousine with the President and first lady passed by them, just 10 feet away, they saw the fatal shot hit John F. Kennedy and heard the First Lady's desperate cries. They dived to the ground and covered their children in a now famous photo.
2:35 Reading - Yesterday - we heard how Eleanor Meecham and her American cycling friend, Bojo made it to the end of the road at the bottom of South America on Tierra del Fuego. Which means the only way to go now is north as she continues her story of a 5000 kilometre bicycle journey in the wilds of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia in episode five of 'Llamas and Empanadas'.
