| Summary

The original six BBC TV episodes starring Rowan Atkinson, Tony Robinson, Tim McInnerny, Brian Blessed, Peter Cook, Miriam Margolyes and Rik Mayall. The Foretelling, The Queen of Spain's Beard, Born To Be King, Witchsmeller Pursuivant, Archbishop, The Black Seal. Through the ages, men of flair, faculty and outstanding courage have contributed to their country's heritage. Others, like the snivelling worm Edmund, Duke of Edinburgh (alias 'The Black Adder'), have emerged from the dust of dodgy documents to claim their wrongful place in history... The historic first series introduced us to Rowan Atkinson's first incarnation as Black Adder ' the incompetent, bitter and twisted son of Richard, Duke of York, who, with the help of his trusty (and equally stinky) aide, Baldrick (Tony Robinson), and Percy (Tim McInnerny) begins his slithering journey through the ages, scheming for an easier life, a better position and perhaps even a shot at the throne itself. The original series also stars Brian Blessed as Richard IV, Peter Cook as Richard III, Miriam Margolyes as the Infanta Maria of Spain and Rik Mayall as Mad Gerald.

Compilation album

A compilation album comprises tracks, either previously released or unreleased, usually from several separate recordings by either one or several performers. If by one artist, then generally the tracks were not originally intended for release together as a single work, but may be collected together as a greatest hits album or box set. If from several performers there may be a theme, topic or genre which links the tracks, or they may have been intended for release as a single work—such as a tribute album. When the tracks are by the same recording artist, the album may be referred to as a retrospective album. Compilation albums may employ traditional product bundling strategies.
