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.

A moment of reprieve. Nobody knows you. No one owns you. You´re on day release. Lenny Henry plays double murderer Frank Watt, who is getting ready to face life on the outside after 30 years in prison. He´s looking forward to getting out, but things have changed a lot since the ´80s, and he´s institutionalised. He quite likes his bookish, monklike life inside, and the anger he was boiling over with when he went to prison is down to a manageable simmer. Outside, life is full on. Plus, Frank´s got some old business to sort. Playwright and journalist Peter Jukes is best known for his book about the hacking trial, Beyond Contempt (which he also dramatised for Radio 4), and more recently for his award-winning podcast and subsequent book Untold: The Daniel Morgan Murder Uncovered. Sir Lenny Henry is an award-winning actor and playwright and one of Britain´s best known comedians. Directed by Mary Peate. 1. Language: English.
