Publisher's Summary

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".

Absolutely Hilarious

This was one of my very first purchases on audio. I have never laughed so much in a long time. My favourite episode is Corporal Punishment orders for Operation Insanity arrive and Blackadder breaches regulations by eating the messenger pigeon Speckled Jim - who just happens to be General Melchett's closet boyhood friend. All manner of mayhem breaks loose including Baldrick mixing up letters for legal representation and he ends with George blowing all chances of not guilty at his Court Martial, much frolics at court and afterwards.
Despite it being for TV the audio works really well and makes travelling to work a pleasure rather than the usual chore. Well worth buying. Highly recommended.
