The message fits today, but the clothes look about 40 years old.

My question is: When did John Cleese do this special on extremism?

    the clothes look about 40 years old. – That’s what’s striking you and not that John Cleese looks about 40 years old as well (which is about 40 years fewer than now)?

1987. Or "30 years ago" depending on who you read.

Many news sources have covered this story since Cleese tweeted it himself recently, though most just say '30 years ago'

A few sources give a year, 1987. Daily Express is one.
