Blackadder II: By Richard Curtis and Ben Elton BBC Radio Collection. ISBN 0-563-39034-4 1998 (2hrs 55mins)

England 1558-1603. The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble back to the surface of the melting pot of history as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers back with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from the stark raving mad Queen Bess. 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.
