|Blackadder the Third: By Richard Curtis and Ben Elton BBC Radio Collection. ISBN 0-563-36578-1 1999 (2hrs 50mins)
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 Blackadders 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 imbecilic 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.Johnsons English Dictionary and battles 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 stand sin for the Prince in a fatal duel with the brutal Duke of Wellington. History will never be the same again.
