Monty Python member Michael Palin (pictured) and TV presenter Lucy Worsley are among the headline speakers headed to Sheffield Doc/Fest.

The event – which runs from June 5 to 10 in the UK – will see Palin joining co-directors Roger Graef and James Rogan for a Q&A following the screening of their film Monty Python – The Meaning of Live on June 10.

Meanwhile, Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell – stars of ITV series Long Lost Family - will participate in a June 8 session discussing the making of the program, which aims to reunite relatives after years of separation.

Elsewhere, Jolyon Rubinstein, Heydon Prowse and Joe Wade – the makers of BBC3 satirical comedy The Revolution will be Televised - are set to talk about their series, which showcases politically-charged sketches, targeting such figures as Bill Clinton, Sarah Palin and Gordon Brown. The event is to take place on June 8.

Finally, historian and TV presenter Lucy Worsley will be on hand for an “In Conversation” event on June 6 to discuss such historical programs as the BBC’s The First Georgians: The German Kings Who Made Britain and Dancing Cheek To Cheek: An Intimate History of Dance.
