This is clearly one of the bits left off the 'Contractual Obligation Album' for not being funny enough...or very funny at all. Chapman's character here is the basis for his 'Zulu war' doctor character seen 3 years later in 'Monty Python's The Meaning of Life'.- Stavro Arrgolus
Song Lyrics:
Announcer (Eric Idle): "Talking Science"- introduced as usual by Dr. Louis Yeti-Goosecreature

Doctor (Graham Chapman): Good evening. In the last 164 programs, I've been trying to tell you a little about that thread of life that we scientists call DNA or Dioxy Ribo's Nucleic Acid.
All together-

Many Python voices: "Dioxy Ribo's Nucleic Acid."

Doctor: Good. Now DNA is the genetic unit. That is, a kind of code which controls the way in which each individual cell is formed. It's rather like having a lot of building sites linked together by an vast telephone exchange all controlled by an enormous invisible traffic policeman which we scientists call "PC Harris".

We have now found a way of altering this DNA molecule in real life. We can, as it were, take DNA and turn it upside down or to put it another way: Upside down it can we turn take DNA. This means that we scientists can now change this genetic template of life and so alter the shape of life itself. (fanfare) Thank you.

Obviously, this is important in the field of germ warfare because we can now produce an almost infinite number of new diseases. We can make germs or bacteria, g-e-r-m-s, to order. Here in Britain, we have recently made a major breakthrough by producing a new, extremely large germ; a germ so large that it can kill a man by acts of physical violence. We scientists have nicknamed this germ "the extremely large germ", but more correctly, we refer to it as "the big strangler" after Dr. Big Strangler, the biologist. "The big strangler" will also be able to kill people by kneeing them in the head.

We hope soon to develop a particularly virulent bacteria which can drive tanks and a sophisticated form of cholera which goes to the opera twice a week and can choose a decent claret.
(applause) Thank you. And now, I'd like to finish with a song...
(Stavro Arrgolus)
