Blackadder Series I, Episode 1 Full Script – The Foretelling
Painter: History has known many great liars. Copernicus, Goebbels,
St Ralph the Liar [he is shown holding a sign which reads
`St Benedict the Liar’] — but there have been none quite so
vile as the Tudor king Henry VII. It was he who rewrote
history to portray his precessor Richard III as a deformed maniac
who killed his nephews in the Tower. But the real truth is that
Richard was a kind and thoughtful man who cherished his young
wards. In particular: Richard, Duke of York, who grew into a
big, strong boy.
Henry also claimed he won the Battle of Bosworth Field and killed
Richard III. Again, the truth is very different; for it was
Richard, Duke of York, who became king after Bosworth Field, and
reigned for thirteen glorious years.
As for who really killed Richard III and how the defeated Henry
Tudor escaped with his life, all is revealed in this, the first
chapter of a history never before told: the history of The Black
Blackadder series 4 is also known as Blackadder Goes Forth. Whilst all the Blackadder series mix comedy and history, Blackadder series 4 is arguably the best written, and cleverest of all the series. Set in the First World War, Blackadder and Baldrick spend the series attempting to escape the insanity of the Flanders front line trenches. This is British comedy at it’s finest!
Blackadder Series 4 – Blackadder Goes Forth
Given that the subject of the fourth Blackadder series could be sensitive, it is easy to realise why some people initially thought that Blackadder Series 4 trivialised the First World War. Nothing could be further from the truth though. In fact, this British sitcom has probably done more to highlight the tragedy, history, and sheer scale of loss of life than any other TV program, whether fact or fiction. Blackadder Goes Forth is one of the best TV sitcom shows ever made, and it’s final episode should ALWAYS be watched on Armistice Day!read more
