Almost lost.
This shouldn't be surprising, really:
BBC bosses were secretly appalled when Monty Python's Flying Circus first aired, finding it ‘sadistic’ and ‘disgusting’.

Newly published documents reveal that top executives believed that the six stars had developed a ‘death wish’ and did not accept limits of taste and decency.

The papers also reveal that John Cleese considered quitting after just one series and that Terry Gilliam was almost dropped in a dispute over pay.
