Entire third series of the historic sitcom, which finds a Regency Edmund Blackadder employed as butler to the Prince Regent (Hugh Laurie), who is thicker than a whale omelette. In 'Dish and Dishonesty', Blackadder enters the world of politics while his master teeters on the brink of bankrupcy. 'Ink and Incapability' sees the rubber-faced one in a bit of a fix when his odorous manservant Baldrick (Tony Robinson) burns the only existing copy of Doctor Johnson's brand new dictionary. In 'Nob and Nobility', Edmund reluctantly turns adventurer when he agrees to rescue a French aristo in return for a huge wodge of cash. 'Sense and Senility' finds Edmund ousted from the Prince's favour when the latter takes elocution lessons from a pair of overly mannered thespians. In 'Amy and Amiability', the Prince finds true love and Blackadder finds that the lif eof a highwayman is not all it is cracked up to be. Finally, in 'Duel and Duality', the Prince puts hi sfoot in it when he soils a couple of Wellingtons, and Blackadder is forced to take his place in a duel to the death with a large-nosed Duke.

R231 Discovery Miles 2 310 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Written by Ben Elton and starring Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson and Nigel Planer, this loud, rude toilet-humour 1980s comedy was overshadowed by its predecessor, 'The Young Ones', and the later 'Bottom'. The series, of which only the six episodes collected here were ever made, takes a satirical swipe at the superficial world of showbiz. Rik Mayall plays Richie Rich, a talentless prat trying to make the big time as a superstar and international sex symbol, who, along with his useless, freeloading minder Eddie Catflap (Adrian Edmondson) and his sleazy alcoholic agent Ralph Filthy (Nigel Planer), navigates the celebrity circuit and encounters a host of parodies of real-life media darlings. Episodes are: 'Dead Milkmen', 'Game Show', 'Dinner Party', 'A Death in the Family?', 'Breakfast Television' and 'Smear Campaign'.

'Long Pig; A white man to be eaten' Here where the living eat the dead, the dead may eat the living too. Their spirits are all around us now, carved in the rock, in the shells, in the trunk of the Pandanu tree - Deep in the Polynesian islands of the Pacific Ocean, hungry spirits circle the homes of writer Robert Louis Stevenson and artist Paul Gauguin. The path to Stevenson's grave, his 'Road to Paradise', is complete; he can pass on anytime he likes. But, having spent thirty years in rigorous combat with the grim reaper, is he finally ready to concede defeat? His islander maid, Java is terrified his spirit will get waylaid on its journey back to Edinburgh and stay to devour her soul. Gauguin too, is ready - he has bought rum, arsenic and morphine for his suicide cocktail and is certain he's not long for this world. It seemed easy enough to avoid being arrested by the gendarme, but he'll be damned if they give him a Catholic burial in consecrated ground. "Death of Long Pig", a reference to the native South Sea Islanders' term for a white man to be eaten, premieres at the Finborough Theatre, London, on 7 July 2009.

Among the supporting cast are Brian Blessed, Nigel Planer, Sorcha Cusack, Paul Copley and James Grout.

'... one of the funniest, slyest, most naughtily inventive and brilliantly performed shows on the air' Gillian Reynolds, The Daily Telegraph This fourth series sees our arty, adulterous Bohemians struggling with the issues of class, money and how to become truly modern. Henry is concerned about Vera's dangerous susceptibility to romance, and her tendency to fascinate several women at once. In addition, he is wrestling with his biography of the king, misses the hurly burly of life at the Foreign Office and is tempted to stand for Parliament as a Labour MP. Meanwhile, Vera tangles with a randy Llewd George, accompanies Ginny to Sandwich where they meet Lytton Scratchy and Dora Barrington, and takes part in an indiscreet radio broadcast and a surprising seance. The friends also embark on a trip to Venice, where they meet Dave Lollipop, his pneumatic German wife Frieda and man-eating American art connoisseur Peggy Googleheim. Duration: 3 hours approx.

The oldest and most inscrutable empire on the Discworld is in turmoil, brought about by the revolutionary treatise 'What I Did on My Holidays'. Workers are uniting, with nothing to lose but their water buffaloes. Warlords are struggling for power. War(and his daughter Clancy) are spreading through the ancient cities. And all that stands in the way of terrible doom for everyone is: Rincewind the Wizard, who can't even spell the word "wizard", Cohen the barbarian hero, five foot tall in his surgical sandals, and a very special butterfly.

A sorcerer is born - a wizard so powerful that by comparison all other magic is just mucking about in pointy hats - and his very existence brings the Discworld to the very verge of the all-out thaumaturgical war(a bad thing). All that stands in the way is Rincewind, the failed magician, who wants to save the world, or at least that part of it which contains him. More new characters join the Discworld adventure: Conina the barbarian hairdresser, Nijel the destroyer, and possibly the first yuppie genie, who's into lamps as a growth area. This time the adventure goes east, or hubwards, or whatever. It doesn't simply draw heavily on Omar Khayyam, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the 1001 Nights and every Arabian B-movie ever made, it scribbles on them as well.

Nigel Planer's debut play, this is a comedy about the painting of the Sistine Chapel starring Ralf Little and Ron Cook, published alongside the West End opening. This time the Pope has surely backed a loser, the man he has put in charge of painting The Sistine Chapel is simply not up to the job - after all, he's a sculptor with next to no experience of painting. He didn't want the job in the first place and has never done anything remotely on this scale before. He's all over the place...when he remembers to turn up for work! So, who has to cover for him? Who has to put in the hours, teach him his craft, patch up his mistakes, deal with his tantrums and get the job done? Who? Like any big project, it's the little guys, the professionals, the men who've been doing this kind of thing all their lives - they're the ones that are actually going to have to make it happen. Ron Cook and Ralf Little play the little guys in this new comedy that lifts the lid on the extraordinary story of the men, disregarded by history, who worked on history's most highly regarded ceiling...

Practically everything that's not poisonous is venomous. But it's the best bloody place in the world, alright? And it'll die in a few days, except... Who is this hero striding across the red desert? Champion sheet shearer, horse rider, road warrior, beer drinker, bush ranger and someone who'll even eat a Meat Pie Floater when he's sober? A man in a hat whose luggage follows him on little legs, who's about to change history by preventing a swagman stealing a jumbug by a billabong? Yes..all this place has between itself and wind-blown doom is Rincewind the inept wizard who can't even spell wizard. Still..no worries, eh? Terry Pratchett would like it to be known that "The Last Continent" is not a book about Australia. It's just vaguely Australian.
