Dickens´ classic tale of kindness, truth, and virtue is utterly ruined here by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Stuffed with deeply horrible people and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze a Victorian Blackadder and his Elizabethan, Regency, and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment which will satisfy everyone, unless you´re a beadle, an orphan, or a long-dead member of the Royal Family. This collection also includes The Cavalier Years in which Lord Edmund Blackadder and bottom-breath Baldrick remain faithful to King Charles who awaits execution, or do they? 1. Language: English.

Six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Tony Robinson. England 1760-1815. With the advent of the Regency period the Blackadder´s family fortune has rather plummeted. Edmund Blackadder, butler to the Prince Regent, veers from calamity to disaster with very little in the way of constructive help from either his imbecile Lord and master the Prince Regent or the mouse-brained Baldrick. Here, Blackadder single-handedly brings about the election of Mr S. Baldrick MP, gets as far as aardvark in his attempt to re-write Dr Johnson´s English Dictionary and battle with French Revolutionaries before killing the Scarlet Pimpernel. Ever ready to serve, Blackadder woos a wife for his master, confounds anarchists and actors who sip coffee while scheming of revolution, and stands in for the Prince in a fatal duel with the brutal Duke of Wellington. The collection includes the following episodes: ´´Dish and Dishonesty´´, ´´Nob and Nobility´´, ´´Ink and Incapability´´, ´´Sense and Senility´´, ´´Amy and Amiability´´, and ´´Duel and Duality´´. 1.

Six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Tony Robinson. With a ya boo sucks to you fritzy, hot tiddly tumble, it´s off to Western Front 1917. Captain Blackadder, hero of Mboto Gorge, joined the British Army when it was little more than a travel agency for gentlemen with an abnormally high sex drive. Now he finds himself crammed into a sewer, twenty yards from a lot of heavily armed people who want to kill him. Worse still, he takes his orders from two homicidal maniacs, one called the Charge of the Light Brigade ´a victory for common sense´, and the other is called Darling. Ever ready with a cunning plan, Blackadder actively avoids duty by taking up art, shooting the General´s favourite bird, probing the hospital nurse, and learning to fly. But will his attempts to push off be enough to save him when the Big Push comes? This collection includes the following episodes: ´´Captain Cook´´, ´´Corporal Punishment´´, ´´Major Star´´, ´´Private Plane´´, ´´General Hospital´´, and ´´Goodbyeee´´. 1. Language: English.

Six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Miranda Richardson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and Tony Robinson. England 1558-1603. The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble to the surface of history´s melting pot as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from the stark raving mad Queen Bess. Listen as Lord Blackadder falls in love with a girl named Bob, takes over the job of executioner whilst almost losing his own head, schemes to raise 1,000 pounds to pay off a perverted Bishop, goes on a far-off sea voyage to the remote country of France, and plays Charades with a member of the Spanish Inquisition. Accompanied by a small rabble of beruffed riff-raff (bottom-breath Baldrick and pea-brain Percy) the serpentine Lord Blackadder lowers the whole tone of England´s Golden Age. The collection includes the following episodes: ´´Bells´´, ´´Head´´, ´´Potato´´, ´´Money´´, ´´Beer´´, and ´´Chains´´. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, Full Cast.

Through the ages, men of flair, faculty, and outstanding courage have contributed to their country´s heritage. Others, like the snivelling worm Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh (alias ´´The Blackadder´´), have emerged from the dust of dodgy documents to claim their wrongful place in history. The historic first series introduced us to Rowan Atkinson´s first incarnation as Blackadder, the incompetent, bitter, and twisted son of Richard, Duke of York, who, with the help of his trusty (and equally stinky) aide, Baldrick (Tony Robinson), and Percy (Tim McInnerny), begins his slithering journey through the ages, scheming for an easier life, a better position, and perhaps even a shot at the throne itself. The original series also stars Brian Blessed as Richard IV, Peter Cook as Richard III, Miriam Margolyes as the Infanta Maria of Spain, and Rik Mayall as Mad Gerald. Blackadder was runner-up in the BBC´s search for Britain´s Best Sitcom. 1. Language: English. Narrator: full cast. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/bbcw/000935/rt_bbcw_000935_sample.mp3.

Rowan Atkinson stars as many different characters in four episodes from the classic comedy series, written by Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill), which investigates the lives of four great - but imaginary - men. We hear about the life and times of master orator Sir Benjamin Fletcher: writer, statesman, Nobel Prize winner, painter, farmer, diplomat, wit, etc, etc.... There’s France’s greatest thinker and philosopher, George Dupont; and actor, raconteur, and general bore Sir Corin Basin. Barry Good - the ‘Pope of pop’ - also looks back at his life (before he became a rich tax exile). Produced by Griff Rhys Jones, Atkinson’s People was one of the first radio series ever to star Rowan Atkinson and was a forerunner to the massively successful Blackadder TV series. Rowan Atkinson stars in the spoof radio series, which examined the personalities behind the headlines - co-written by Richard Curtis. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rowan Atkinson.
