British Comedy: Blackadder sounds

back to British Comedy index page

Blackadder is, in my opinion, the best British comedy show ever produced. It's a "historical sitcom", taking place during the Middle Ages, Elizabethan England, the early 19th century, and the 1st World War. So you've guessed it, there were four series (of 6 episodes each) running on BBC TV from 1983 until 1989.

These sound samples were taken from the Blackadder IV episode "Private Plane" (and one from the Blackadder II episode "Bells"). The samples were created a long time ago, so no, they're not from a DVD, but from VHS tape...
