The Blackadder pilot episode was titled ‘The Black Adder’, and was filmed on 20 June 1982, Blackadder fans will note that the character of Blackadder is similar to the second series rather than the first.

First off, if you really wanted to look at the Blackadder episode WITH a pilot, you should check here – Blackadder Private Plane full script! This short post is about the unaired Blackadder pilot episode known as ‘The Black Adder’.
This pilot episode of Blackadder was never broadcast in the UK, and it looks unlikely it ever will be. Apparently, the original tapes were badly damaged in storage, and deemed unfit for broadcast. From time to time, they are published on YouTube, but then quickly taken down again. There are also bootlegs on various torrent sites (allegedly!).

Have you ever wondered what contrafibularities means? Of course, it is an un-word, a word created for the show. It is also a play-on-words, and is all the more brilliant because you can guess its meaning from how it sounds.
