Monty Python star wins Special Recognition Award ….

Sir Michael Palin received a Special Recognition award at this week’s National Television awards.

As well as his work in comedy and documentaries he has also starred in many films. A combination of these and his work in the fields of Geography, Travel and Culture that got him his knighthood in the 2019 New Year Honours list.
