Season 1

Blackadder is the name that encompassed four seasons of a BBC1 historical sitcom created by Richard Curtis and Rowan Atkinson, along with several one-off instalments. All television program episodes starred Rowan Atkinson as anti-hero Edmund Blackadder and Tony Robinson as Blackadder's dogsbody, Baldrick.

Each season was set in a different historical period with the two protagonists accompanied by different characters, though several reappear in one series or another, for example Melchett and Lord Flashheart.

The series aired in the UK on BBC One from 15 June, 1983 to 2 November, 1989. There are 24 half-hour episodes in four seasons, as well as three specials.

Blackadder aired in South Africa on M-Net. Broadcast details are not available.

Season 1

The first of the Blackadder series' is set in the Middle Ages (roughly 1485). The premise of the series is a slight but significant deviation from our version of history, where, by many flukes and great silliness, Edmund Blackadder is somehow in line for the throne of England.

His father is King, and he desperately wants to rule in his stead.

To aid him, he has the loyal but dim servant Baldrick at his side, as well as the possibly-more-dim Lord Percy.

It does not end well for the over-ambitious and under-resourced Lord Blackadder.

The Black Adder was first aired in 1983 (6 episodes).
